Colegio de San Juan de Letran has won two titles in the last five years in NCAA Men's Basketball.
And for the Knights, ABS-CBN Sports has been a big boost to their climb back to the mountaintop.
"Thank you, ABS-CBN S+A for bringing out the best in us," the Intramuros-based school said in its online post. "You have been with us through hardship and triumph. Without you, the world would not have seen what the Colegio has to offer on and off camera."
Letran, with then-rookie head coach Aldin Ayo at the helm, had a Cinderella run for the ages in the Grand Old League's first season back with ABS-CBN Sports in 2015.
In the league's most recent season, the Knights had yet another run to remember as they dashed archrival San Beda University's dreams of going undefeated throughout the tournament.
And even though ABS-CBN did not have its franchise renewed by Congress and was, therefore, forced to shut down its sports division, Letran is saying no goodbyes. As it said in its statement, "Until the next time we meet again. Arriba!"
