NCAA: St. Benilde cuts down Arellano, doubles win total from Season 93
College of St. Benilde’s Cinderella story is far from over after it weaved past Arellano, 89-73, in the NCAA Season 94 men’s basketball tournament Friday at Filoil Flying V Center.
The Blazers improved their record to 8-5 to stay at the fourth spot and in the process doubled their win total from Season 93.
Justin Gutang filled up the stat sheets for CSB with 23 points, five rebounds, six assists, and two steals while Rob Nayve added 16 points.
CSB used its might in the paint to take over and outscored the Chiefs 52-32 underneath the basket and much of that was thanks to big man Clement Leutcheu who had 14 points and 11 boards,
Adrian Alban had 22 points for the 4-8 Chiefs who played its first game after former head coach Jerry Codiñera’s resignation.
