MANILA, Philippines – Garvo Lanete swished a triple with 18.3 ticks left to finally give San Beda the top spot after edging San Sebastian, 88-85, in the 87th NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

Lanete, who pumped in 15 of his game-high 27 points from downtown, came off the screen before drilling the go-ahead triple from the right elbow that gave the Red Lions an 87-85 spread.

Anthony Semerad made one-of-two free throws to set the final count as Stags’ forward Calvin Abueva misfired a potential game-tying three as time expired.

The Final Four kicks off on Monday with San Beda facing No.4 seed Jose Rizal University, which ended its elimination round with a six-game winning streak.
