The San Sebastian Stags halted the longest winning streak in the NCAA by the San Beda Red Lions by beating the defending champions, 70-68.  The 26-game winning streak by the Lions ended while the Stags starts the 87th NCAA men’s basketball tournament with a 9-game winning run.

It was a close game all-through out and Calvin Abueva hit the game-winner with 2:04 left in the game. No team scored afterwards. Abueva (21 points) along with Ronald Pascual (23 points, 7 Rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals & 2 blocks) paced the Topex Robinson-coached Stags. Garvo Lañete led Red Lions with 18 points.

The 2 teams are expected to figure well this season and many experts expect a Stags vs. Lions championship game this season.

SSC-R 70—Pascual 23, Abueva 21, Sangalang 9, Marquez 6, Dela Cruz 6, Antipuesto 3, Balucanag 2, Del Rio 0, Vitug 0, Ferrer 0, Miranda 0.

SBC 68—Lanete 18, Marcelo 15, Caram 8, J. Pascual 7, Amer 6, Sorela 6, K. Pascual 4, Dela Rosa 4, Villahermosa 0, D. Somerad 0, Lim 0.

Quarter scores: 16-17, 34-27, 53-55, 70-68.
