OLA ADEOGUN and Arthur dela Cruz kept San Beda afloat in the final five minutes as the NCAA champion Lions slipped past Far Eastern University, 80-76, yesterday in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup at Filoil Flying V Arena.

Dela Cruz buried 18 points, the last four inside the final two minutes that put the Lions ahead, 78-74, against an FEU side that kept coming back behind RR Garcia.

Adeogun also dropped 11 of his 15 points in the final quarter to help the Lions pick up their third triumph in four games in Group A.

“We just came back last Wednesday, so we’re happy we came out with the win,” said coach Boyet Fernandez.
