National U did just enough to edge out Letran, 59-58, at the Trinity University of Asia Gym in Quezon City last Sunday and reign supreme in the 2018 Milcu Sports Basketball presented by Got Skills Elite Showcase.
The Bulldogs dug for themselves a nine-point hole in the first half before slowly but surely clawing their way back into the game.
Versatile forward Robert Minerva showed the way with 10 points, six rebounds, and three assists to also come away with the Finals MVP award.
High-flying Filipino-American Daniel Chatman and sharpshooter Migs Oczon also chipped in nine and eight points, respectively, for NU.
King Caralipio paced the Knights with a 13-point, 14-rebound double-double. They settle for a runner-up finish in the league’s 2018 year-ender.
