THE LETRAN Knights leaned on an explosive third period to defeat the Arellano University Chiefs, 75-68, to gain a shot of the second seed and the twice-to-beat advantage that comes with it in the 88th NCAA men’s basketball tournament yesterday at the Arena in San Juan City.

Letran outscored its opponents, 22-6, in that fateful third-quarter stretch to seal its 12th win in 18 games.
