After trailing to the San Sebastian Stags for most of the season, the defending champions San Beda Red Lions needed an extra game to grab the top seeding in the Final Four of the 87th NCAA men’s basketball tournament. The Lions beat the Stags, 88-85, behind the heroics of Garvo Lañete. The Red Lions were trailing 84-85 when Lañete hit a triple off a screen to take the lead 87-85. In the ensuing play, Jake Pascual blocked Ronald Pascual’s attempt to tie the game. The ball ended with Anthony Semerad who was fouled and then split his free throws for a 3 point Red Lions’ lead. The final play of the game was a tree point attempt by Calvin Abueva that was off the mark.

Lañete top scored for San Beda with 27 points. He was supported by Rome dela Rosa, and Semerad. San Sebastian’s Calvin Abueva had a monster game, he finished with 26 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and four steals.

Despite the loss, the Stags will still enjoy a twice to beat advantage over the 3rd ranked Letran Knights. The Red Lions will face the JRU Bombers in the other Final Four match.

The scores:
SAN BEDA 88—Lanete 27, Dela Rosa 17, A. Semerad 12, Amer 10, Marcelo 8, D. Semerad 4, K. Pascual 4, Caram 3, J. Pascual 2, Villahermosa 1, Sorela 0.
SAN SEBASTIAN 85—Abueva 26, Sangalang 12, Dela Cruz 11, Miranda 10, Pascual 10, Antipuesto 9, Del Rio 7, Vitug 0, Ferrer 0, Balucanag 0, Maiquez 0.
Quarters: 19-19, 44-40, 65-62, 88-85
