SAN BEDA looks to tighten its grip on top spot when it clashes with bitter rival Letran tonight in the 88th NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Gametime is 6 p.m. with the Red Lions seeking win No. 10 against a Knights crew slowly but surely regaining their lethal form.

Emilio Aguinaldo College guns for a fourth straight victory when it battles Mapua at 4 p.m.

The Generals are riding high on the best run of their NCAA existence and will be looking to boost their Final Four hopes.


One of the players instrumental to the Generals’ run has been Cameroonian center Noube Happi, who is averaging close to 20 points and 14 rebounds.

“Happi has been a big help to us,” said EAC coach Gerry Esplana.

The Lions flashed dominant form when they bested the Knights, 65-43, in their meeting.

Letran is hoping to flip the script this time and the Knights have reason to be confident with center Raymond Almazan back in the fold.

The 6-foot-7 Almazan, the NCAA Press Corps Player of the Week, has been a force inside the paint for the Knights.
