Knights, Lions relish unlikely team-up in NCAA All-Star Game

It took an unlikely alliance between longtime rivals to finally take down the league-leaders.

Stars from San Beda and Letran conspired on Friday as they headlined the Saints’ takedown of Lyceum-powered Heroes in the 2017 NCAA All-Star Game, 84-80.

“The rivalry was suddenly gone,” said Red Lion Javee Mocon. “We really helped each other out to get the win against CJ Perez because they’re really strong.”

The Saints forged a bond between the Red Lions, who had Mocon, Robert Bolick, and Davon Potts, and the Knights, who were represented by Rey Nambatac, Bong Quinto, and JP Calvo, as they, together with standouts from Perpetual, St. Benilde, and San Sebastian, dealt Perez his first taste of defeat this year.

But the players themselves said that the union really wasn’t difficult at all, sharing that being rivals is what actually made playing together easy.
