MANILA, Philippines — University of Santo Tomas stunned topranked National University, 76-69, Saturday to reach the finals of the UAAP men’s basketball tournament for the second straight year.

The Growling Tigers reasserted their mastery of the Bulldogs in the final four, defeating them twice this time to become the first number four ranked team to reach the finals.

UST also eliminated NU from contention last year. This season, though, the Tigers needed to overcome a huge twice-to-beat disadvantage.

UST, which lost to Ateneo in season 75, gets another crack at the crown as it faces La Salle in a best-of-three series starting on Wednesday.
