Last season, Letran also hosted CSB in a game which the former won.
On a three-game winning streak following a season-opening loss, Knights will again bank on the core of Jeo Ambohot, Jerrick Balanza, JP Calvo, and Jeo Ambohot which has now been reinforced by the likes of Christian Fajarito and Larry Muyang.
On the other hand, the 2-2 Blazers are hoping to go back-to-back behind Clement Leutcheu, Justin Gutang, and Edward Dixon.
