MANILA, Philippines—San Sebastian survived Letran, 102-101, in overtime to stop a three-game skid in the NCAA Season 95 men’s basketball tournament Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

Ken Villapando played hero and nailed the game-winning basket for the Stags, who blew a 17-point lead.

“The boys just really wanted to win,” said San Sebastian assistant coach Melo Banua, filling in for head coach Egay Macaraya, who served a one-game suspension.


RK Ilagan led San Sebastian, which leveled its record to 3-3, with 22 points while Allyn Bulanadi added 21 points.

The Stags spoiled a career-game by Letran big man Larry Muyang, who delivered 32 points and 18 rebounds.

Muyang also sent the game into overtime with two free throws with 16.1 seconds left in regulation.
