CJ Isit dazzled his way in the overtime period to deliver Mapua a 101-97 victory over San Beda Thursday in the NCAA Season 92 men’s basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Fil-Canadian stringed eight straight points in extra time to give his side a 97-94 lead in the final 40.1 seconds.

Isit finished with 15 points, six rebounds, and four steals to give the Cardinals their first win over the Red Lions since their 81-76 triumph back on October 17, 2013.

“Actually, sobrang saya namin kasi bawat game na natitira, importante sa amin,” said Joseph Eriobu. “Malaking boost itong panalo na ito sa San Beda. Di kami nag-give up at sobrang laki ng panalo na ito.”
