Quinto leads Letran to much-needed victory vs EAC

Colegio de San Juan de Letran’s leader for this year and next year came together to make sure they remained alive and kicking in the NCAA 93 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Bong Quinto’s career outing coupled with Rey Nambatac’s steady hands in the endgame proved to be more than enough for the Knights to hold onto a much-needed 84-78 victory versus Emilio Aguinaldo College on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Quinto scored the most points he has ever had after scattering 27 points throughout to go along with three points and two assists. “Nakuha namin yung magandang game ng dalawang beteranong ‘to,” head coach Jeff Napa said of his fourth-year forward and graduating guard who led them back to the win column now at 8-7.

It was Quinto who fueled Letran’s strong start with 20 points in the first two quarters alone. At the half, their lead was a comfortable 50-34.

The Generals, also determined to get back to winning form, never quit, however, and closed the gap to only 73-79 inside the last two minutes.
