FOLLOW MY LEAD. Rey Nambatac has not allowed Letran to skip a beat in their title defense.

Games on Thursday at the San Juan Arena

2:00 PM – Perpetual vs San Sebastian

4:00 PM – Letran vs Arellano

Arellano University remains perfect thus far in the 92nd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

To force themselves onto another three-way tie atop the leaderboard, however, they need another one more win and it would have to come at the expense of defending champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran.

The Chiefs shoot for a share of first while the Knights seek to sully their perfect record on Thursday at the San Juan Arena.

The clash of titans commences at 4:00 PM and all of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN Sports+Action Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on

With reigning Player of the Week Jiovani Jalalon leading the way, Arellano has showcased the high-octane attack everybody feared even before the beginning of the season. As deep as they have ever been, they are nothing but confident that they can keep pace with league-leading San Beda College and Mapua Institute of Technology.

Jalalon and company will be put to the test, however, by the defending champions who are yet again hell-bent on proving everybody wrong. Inspired by Rey Nambatac who has been doing it all and fortified by the heart of a champion, they are also nothing but confident they can improve on their 2-1 record.

Meanwhile, University of Perpetual Help looks to get a winning streak going when they face off against a San Sebastian side determined to get back to winning at 2:00 PM.
