San Beda reaches playoffs for 12th straight season

San Beda College advanced to the Final Four of the NCAA 93 men’s basketball tournament for the 12th time in a row.

Javee Mocon saw to that as behind yet another double-double from him, the Red Lions just had enough to put away Jose Rizal University, 65-60, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

Davon Potts of San Beda reacts after hitting a 3-pointer late.
The fourth-year forward pounded in 19 points and 15 rebounds to go along with five assists to power the defending champions to their 11th consecutive victory and 12th overall in 13 games. “Thanks to the clutch shots of Javee and Davon, we won,” head coach Boyet Fernandez said.

Mocon started strong and led his team onto a 28-10 lead in the second quarter.

However, the Heavy Bombers, slowly but surely, vanquished their deficit. They even led by a solitary point, 57-56, inside the last minutes. “The worst thing that happened, we gave up 27 points in the third quarter. That is not our usual self,” Fernandez said.

Davon Potts finally had the answer and buried back-to-back threes that took back a 62-57 advantage in favor of San Beda.
