Game on Tuesday at MOA Arena

4:00 p.m. - San Beda vs Letran

It all comes down to this - one game for all the glory in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament.

At one end is three-time defending champion San Beda University while at the other is re-awakened giant Colegio de San Juan de Letran and they collide in the middle of the MOA Arena floor on Tuesday.

The bell rings on the biggest rivalry game of the season at 4:00 p.m. As always, all of the action will be on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and livestream.

Game 1 went to the Knights as Fran Yu, Larry Muyang, and Jerrick Balanza came through in what was a close contest.

Game 2 was a tight tiff as well, but in that one, it was Calvin Oftana and James Canlas who came up big for the Red Lions.

Now, something's gotta give between the two teams as at stake for San Beda is yet another four-peat while up for grabs for Letran is its first title in four years.

The Jrs. tournament will also have a winner-take-all game as the San Beda Red Cubs take on the Lyceum of the Philippines University Jr. Pirates at 1:00 p.m.
