It's San Beda-Letran Round 2 - what else has to be said!
Games on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Centre
2:00 PM – Letran vs San Beda
4:00 PM – CSB vs San Sebastian
In the first round of the NCAA 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament, Colegio de San Juan de Letran was oh so close to giving head coach Jeff Napa his very first triumph over San Beda University.
Only, the Red Lions, as they always have, found a way to win.
Now, the Knights have even more reason to want that victory versus their archrivals as they hope to continue rallying around ailing Jerrick Balanza when they meet defending champion San Beda in the middle of the Filoil Flying V Centre floor on Tuesday.
The bell rings on Round 2 of San Beda-Letran at 2:00 PM and as always, all of the action will be on S+A, S+A HD, and livestream.
In the first round, the Red Lions (10-1) were three seconds away from a loss before Donald Tankoua and Robert Bolick came through for an 80-76 decision over their archrival Knights (7-3)
Meanwhile, College of St. Benilde (7-3) is looking to stay hot against dangerous San Sebastian College-Recoletos (2-9) at 4:00 PM.
In the Juniors division, the CSB-La Salle Greenhills Junior Blazers (9-1) defend their top spot opposite the hard-charging San Sebastian Staglets (4-7) at 12:00 PM and the San Beda Red Cubs (7-4) seek a bounce back win at the expense of fierce foe Letran Squires (3-7) at 10:00 AM.
