LETRAN leaned on the explosive game of diminutive guard Mark Cruz while La Salle banked on big man Norbert Torres as both squads dumped separate opponents to grab a share of third place yesterday in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Hanes Cup.

The 5-foot-6 Cruz pumped in 27 points built on a 4-of-6 shooting clip from three-point range to lift the Knights past the Mapua Cardinals, 79-55, at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

La Salle also drew a big game from Torres, who shone with 20 points and eight rebounds in leading the Archers to a 75-67 triumph over the Perpetual Help Altas in the second game.

Both the Archers and the Knights rose to 4-2 behind San Beda (7-0) and Ateneo (6-1).
