Fernandez rues little things as San Beda left without twice-to-beat

San Beda head coach Boyet Fernandez rued the little things that went wrong in San Beda’s 107-105 loss to Lyceum in double overtime in its last game in the NCAA Season 93 elimination round.

Only a free throw separated victory and defeat for the Red Lions, who missed out of a chance thwart the Pirates’ historic sweep bid and keep the regular Final Four format.

“We have a good chance of winning that game but in the end, it just boiled down to one free throw,” he said, citing Robert Bolick’s split from the free throw line in the last 1.5 seconds of the first overtime period which could have decided the game.

“It boiled down to easy layups, misses, and they got defensive rebounds, and then we fouled. It’s just little things that hopefully we can learn and look forward for the next round.”

The Pirates completed the record-setting 18-0 finish while snapping defending champions’ 15-game winning streak and forcing them to play in the stepladder semifinals without a twice-to-beat advantage despite their no. 2 record.
