Red Lions target share of NCAA lead vs Perpetual Help today
Games today (The Arena)
4 p.m. – Mapua vs. Lyceum
6 p.m. – San Beda vs. Perpetual Help
THE San Beda Red Lions gun for a share of the lead today when they take on a rejuvenated Perpetual Help squad in the 88th NCAA basketball tournament over at the Arena in San Juan City.
The Red Lions are aiming to tie the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers at the top of the standings. San Beda, who have won two straight games, is currently a half-game behind JRU, which totes a perfect 3-0 (win-loss) mark.
The Red Lions are coming off an, 82-67 win over the Lyceum Pirates in a game that saw most of the players in their loaded roster come back from suspensions. Now, only Cameroonian center, Ola Adeogun, is waiting in the wings as he is serving a four-game suspension for the brawl that occurred way back in December of 2011.
The Altas on the other hand, are coming off a, 65-80 loss to the San Sebastian Stags. Still, the future looks bright for the Altas as they already have two wins tucked under their belt under the tutelage of legendary head coach, Aric del Rosario.
The first game at 4 p.m. will see the Mapua Cardinals take on the reeling Lyceum Pirates. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio
