CSB shocks EAC in OT, snaps 4-game slide

MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (CSB) salvaged a measure of pride by stunning Emilio Aguinaldo College (EAC), 94-84, in overtime for only its fourth win of the NCAA Season 93 men's basketball tournament on Thursday at the FilOil Flying V Centre.

Clement Leutcheu (24 points, 14 rebounds) and Edward Dixon (19 points, 11 rebounds) came through with double-doubles while Unique Naboa and JJ Domingo shared playmaking duties for the Blazers, which ended a four-game losing skid.

With one game to go in their elimination round schedule, the Blazers improved to 4-13 while handing the Generals their fifth straight defeat. EAC dropped to 6-11 in the tournament. Both teams are already out of the running for a spot in the Final 4.

"We never really thought ourselves na out na kami at ayaw na namin maglaro," said CSB coach TY Tang. "As athletes, every single game, dapat kami mag-improve, magdagdag sa repertoire at sa game namin."

"It's about improving ourselves individually and playing together, because after this season, it's still a team next year," he pointed out. "It's important that they continue to grow together."
