Games on Friday at the San Juan Arena

12:00 PM – JRU vs CSB

4:00 PM – Letran vs San Sebastian

Just like that, San Sebastian College-Recoletos is the hottest team in the NCAA 92 Men’s Basketball, having reeled off four consecutive victories.

Not only that, all four of those came against contenders in the tournament in University of Perpetual Help, San Beda College, Mapua Institute of Technology, and Lyceum of the Philippines University.

The Golden Stags have set their sights on their next giant to slay on Friday when they meet defending champion Colegio de San Juan de Letran in the middle of the San Juan Arena floor.

RK Ilagan and the rest of Baste stake their much-needed win run against the Knights who are desperate for a streak of their own at 4:00 PM. All of the action will be broadcast LIVE on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23 as well as streamed LIVE on

Meanwhile, Emilio Aguinaldo College looks to build on their takedown of JRU the last time around up against LPU at 2:00 PM.

In the day’s other game at 12:00 PM, the Heavy Bombers seek a bounce back while also adding to the woes of still winless College of St. Benilde.
