San Beda took another victory after overcoming archrival Colegio de San Juan de Letran, 80-76, in overtime in the NCAA Season 94 men’s basketball tournament Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.


The Red Lions not only one-upped the Knights again, they also stretched their perfect run to five games in the season while Letran slipped to 4-2.

Robert Bolick sizzled for the defending champions with 20 points, 11 rebounds, and six assists while Donald Tankoua had 11 points and 13 boards.


“As what I’ve said, it will be a tough game against Letran, it’s really the rivalry worth watching,” said San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez. “The coaches of Letran did a good job on this game, we should’ve won in regulation, just credit to Letran.”

AC Soberano was the main man for the Red Lions in the overtime period where he scored all six of his points to help the defending champions outscore the Knights, 11-6.

John Quinto had 21 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists for the Knights while JP Calvo had 14 points and six assists.
