Letran grabs share of third, also gets payback on Mapua

Colegio de San Juan de Letran is the only team to fall to Mapua University in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Still stinging from that sorry loss, the Knights were determined to exact revenge when they met their Intramuros neighbors again.

Rey Nambatac, Bong Quinto, and the rest of Letran did just that on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre, making quick work of the luckless Cardinals, 88-79.

Scoring 25 points on top of eight rebounds, the skipper led his squad to a win in the second serving of “The Battle of Intramuros.” “Talagang inisip namin yun. Gusto naming makabawi sa kanila,” he said post-game.

Along with exacting revenge, the Knights also closed the door to contention on Mapua which will be certain to miss the next round with a lowly 1-12 standing.

More importantly for Jeff Napa’s wards, however, the win pushed them onto joint possession of the third-seed with Jose Rizal University. “Magandang bwelo ‘to para sa amin. First round kasi, ang daming drama pa e,” the head coach said.
