“We decided we need to up the energy,” said NU coach Jamike Jarin. “Arellano comes with a lot of energy so we had to match their energy. It was evident that in the third quarter we got that energy and we got the lead.”

CJ Perez shot 14 points to lead five other Pirates in twin digits as Lyceum continued its hot start to the tournament that had already included a narrow win over Ateneo.

With Tey Teodoro rested in the final period, Mark dela Virgen, Gio Lasquety and Darius Estrella joined forces to boost the Bombers past the winless Knights.
