Cameroonian big man Donald Tankoua and James Canlas both had nine.

“We have been working on our individual defense and it worked when we stopped their scoring at 61 points,” said coach Boyet Fernandez.

San Beda was able to pull through with the win despite the absence of lead guard Robert Bolick, who is still recovering from his knee injury.

Neophyte John Lloyd Clemente led NU with his 13 points and three rebounds, while Dave Ildefonso tallied 10 points, two boards, and two assists in his Bulldogs debut.
