La Salle kept its composure in the final period to survive a bruising duel with San Sebastian, 84-70, Wednesday night to survive and reach the semifinals of the Filoil Flying V Preseason Hanes Cup.
Rookie Jeron Teng dished out another solid effort, finishing with 17 points, an output matched by LA Revilla.
The victory sent the Archers to a semifinal duel with San Beda, which remained unbeaten in nine games in the tournament after overpowering St. Benilde, 80-41, in the quarterfinals.
