MANILA, Philippines—College of Saint Benilde continued its rise from a season-opening loss by extending its winning run to three games following a 78-68 romp of Emilio Aguinaldo College Tuesday in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at the La Salle Greenhills Gym.

Robi Nayve dropped 14 of his 18 points in the second half as the Blazers broke away from a slim 38-36 at the break to send the Generals their third loss in four games.

CSB improved to 3-1 to stay within distance of defending champion Letran, San Beda and Mapua—all of which are unbeaten in three matches.

“We got a confidence boost knowing that we’re capable of competing,” said big man Will Gozum, who had a double-double effort of 18 points and 10 rebounds, in Filipino.

“For us, it’s always about getting better every game. That’s really our goal. Win or lose, we wanted to get better. We have to play hard up to the end,” said Blazers coach Charles Tiu.

Ralph Robin had 21 points while JC Luciano added 13 points and 12 boards for EAC.
