Afril Bernardino is first woman awardee in Collegiate Basketball Awards

Honoring the heroes of season’s past, the 2018 Chooks-to-Go Collegiate Basketball Awards is set to distinguish three outstanding performers in college basketball on Thursday at The Bayleaf Intramuros, Manila. Alvin Pasaol, the Lyceum Pirates, and Afril Bernardino will be the recipients of special awards in the ceremony organized by the UAAP-NCAA Press Corps and supported by Chooks-to-Go and The Bayleaf Intramuros.

The Lyceum Pirates, meanwhile, are set to accept a Special Citation for their record-setting 18-0 run in the NCAA Season 93 eliminations, making the inspiring turnaround from league cellar-dwellers to legitimate title contenders. The Pirates of head coach Topex Robinson also ruled the Philippine Collegiate Champions League earlier this year for the first time in school history, stamping their mark as one of the top college basketball programs in the country.
