The Letran Knights blemished the perfect record of the San Sebastian Stags in the 87th Season of the NCAA with a magical 82-81 victory. The teams were so evenly matched that they needed an extra five minutes to settle the outcome.

Kevin Alas hit a three-pointer with 22 seconds left in overtime to turn a 79-81 deficit into an 82-81 lead. The Knight’s defense held on to prevent the league leading Stags from making a go-ahead basket. The victory means that this year’s NCAA will have a Final 4. Had the Stags swept the double-round robin eliminations, they would have gained a thrice-to-beat advantage and a free ride to the finals.

Alas finished the game with 22 points  while Ronald Pascual led the losing team with 25 markers. The win improved Letran’s record to 13-3 while dropping the Stags record to 15-1. The Knights still trail the San Beda Red Lions (14-2) for the No.2 spot in the Final 4.
