Shaken by Chiefs, Pirates take shot at Final 4 vs Altas

In the midst of a historic run, Lyceum shoots for a first Final Four appearance when it clashes with Perpetual Help on Thursday in NCAA Season 93 basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Pirates, who have won their first 12 games of the season, can clinch the first postseason berth since joining the league in 2009 if they beat the Altas in the 2 p.m. duel.

But while the Pirates have been untouchable this season, they nearly fell on the wrong end of an upset last Friday before surviving the Arellano Chiefs, 94-92.

Lyceum coach Topex Robinson hopes the narrow win will serve as a wake-up call for the Pirates to not take other teams for granted.

“I was actually ready for my speech, telling the team that we’re not invincible,” said Robinson. “But the lesson there is that if we’re not gonna play our basketball, any team could beat us.”
