Daniel De Guzman shone in offense as Trinity University of Asia turned back Nyro Saints, 76-69 to capture the Open Division title of the QCBL First Conference over the weekend at the NRMF Gym in Fairview, Quezon City.
De Guzman unloaded 29 points and hauled down nine rebounds.
Trinity coach Alvin Grey said they are using the QCBL as a stepping stone ahead of the PBA D-League where they will be seeing action for the first time.
In other finals matches, SSI Meatal defeated Magic Seven, 96-87, to rule the Cadet Division while Nemesis beat Regalado Vet, 101-90, to bag the Starter Division title.
“We thank all our teams, from the owners to the coaches and players, and our sponsors for making our first tournament successful,” said QCBL executive director BJ Manalo.
