Following back-to-back convincing victories versus tough foes, Lyceum is first to five wins in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Adidas Summer Showcase.

The Pirates dealt the first defeat to the University of the Philippines, 63-58, a week ago at the FEU Gym in Morayta, Manila before outlasting Letran, 91-87, in double-overtime last Friday at the same venue.

With key cogs CJ Perez, MJ Ayaay, and Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee still sidelined, Lyceum showed off its depth in both games en route to a 5-2 standing in the tournament.

Against the erstwhile unbeaten Fighting Maroons, it was spitfire guard Casper Pericas who showed the way with a team-high 10 points on top of six rebounds and three assists. Wing players Yang Remulla and Ian Japzon also added nine markers apiece.

Carl Lumbao and Spencer Pretta then took charge against the Knights as the Pirates battled back from 11 points down to begin the final frame.

Sweet-shooting forward Lumbao scored 21 points to go along with six rebounds, four assists, and three assists while Pretta also had 20 markers to his name all while fronting the charge in the extra periods.

With back-to-back wins, Lyceum now finds itself at solo third in the standings.

Meanwhile, Arellano U bounced back from its first loss in the tournament by routing University of Asia & the Pacific by 43 points, 81-37.

Gunslinger Rence Alcoriza led the scoring parade with 17 points while forwards Maui Serajosef and Harry Dumagan merged for 25 markers and 10 rebounds as the Chiefs registered its league-leading fourth win in five games.

In other results, UE powered through Manuel L. Quezon University, 51-43, to improve to 4-2.

NU then added to the woes of the Stallions with a big-time 81-39 win that hikes its record to 3-2.

With their respective losses, UP slipped to 3-1, Letran fell to 3-2, MLQU dropped to 1-5, and UA&P remained winless in eight games.

The Summer Showcase resumes on Tuesday at the Trinity University Gym with showdowns between 3-1 UP and 2-2 FEU, 5-2 Lyceum and 3-2 NU, as well as 4-2 UE and 2-2 La Salle.
