NCAA champion San Beda inched closer to booking a ticket to the Philippine Collegiate Champions League Final Four with a masterful 85-46 win over Mindanaoan side Holy Trinity College Friday at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.

Robert Bolick showed the way for the Red Lions, firing 13 points and five rebounds in the easy victory as they rose to 2-0 in Group B in the Elite 8.


Clint Doliguez chipped in 11 markers and five assists, while Javee Mocon and Radge Tongco both wound up with nine.

San Beda’s defense was at its finest once again, getting the job done early and limiting Holy Trinity to a measly 15-percent clip from the field in the first half to establish the dominating 42-13 halftime lead.


Ever Dialogo paced the General Santos-based  Wildcats with 15 points and seven boards while Victor Poral had 10 markers, 10 rebounds, and six assists.

Holy Trinity College fell to 1-1 in the group.

In the day’s other games, San Sebastian beat down hapless La Salle, 96-65 for its first win.

Ryan Costelo topscored for the Golden Stags with 13 points, six assists, and five rebounds, while Michael Calisaan and Allyn Bulanadi combined for 24.

San Sebastian evened its standing at 1-1 and will face Holy Trinity for the last spot in the semifinals from Group B.

Mark Alcala carried the Green Archers with 22 points in the defeat.

Lyceum also displayed its patented frenetic pace in the second half to take the 88-80 win over CESAFI titlist University of Visayas.


Jaycee Marcelino anchored the all-out assault from the Pirates with 16 points, five rebounds and four steals, while NCAA MVP CJ Perez contributed 12 markers, five boards, five assists and four steals.

Wilson Baltazar and Mike Nzeusseu both had nine in the contest to put Lyceum on an even keel with Ateneo atop of Group A at 1-0.
