/ 10:14 AM August 15, 2013

Games today

4 p.m. – Perpetual Help vs. Letran


6 p.m. – JRU vs. Lyceum

THE pace-setting Letran Knights hope to keep their unbeaten run through the tournament as they battle the dangerous Perpetual Help Altas in the 89th NCAA men’s basketball tournament, today at the Arena in San Juan City.


The Knights have won seven games in a row to start this season with their last one coming against the Mapua Cardinals, 87-68.

The Altas on the other hand, were derailed by reigning champions, San Beda Red Lions, 65-72, in their last outing, just their second loss in seven games.

In the second game, the Jose Rizal University Heavy Bombers aim to move up in the standings when they take on the struggling Lyceum Pirates, which recently lost to Emilio Aguinaldo College, 76-83.

However, there was a bright spot in that loss as reserve guard Tirso Lesmoras scored a career-high 28 points. /Correspondent Jonas Panerio
