Knights seeking to salvage respectable finish to season

GOOD ENDING. All four of Letran, EAC, JRU, and San Sebastian want nothing more than to finish their campaigns on the right note.
Games on Thursday at the San Juan Arena
2:00 PM – JRU vs San Sebastian
4:00 PM – Letran vs EAC
Colegio de San Juan de Letran had been put through an unceremonious dethroning in the 92nd Season of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Still, the now-dethroned champion Knights can finish their campaign on the right note when they take on vastly-improved Emilio Aguinaldo College on Thursday at the San Juan Arena.
Letran and EAC wrap up their seasons starting 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 sports.abs-cbn.com/livestream/ncaa.
Only holding an 8-9 win-loss card, Letran are the first champions to be unable to defend their title in the playoffs since 2000. Hoping to pile onto their woes even more are the Generals who are already feeling good with their six wins in 17 tries.
Meanwhile, also seeking to salvage a respectable finish to the season are Jose Rizal University and San Sebastian College-Recoletos who duke it out at 2:00 PM.
