    COLLEGE of Saint Benilde kept its unbeaten run going with a 99-87 win over University of Santo Tomas on Tuesday in the Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup.

    Clemente Leutcheu had 22 points, 15 rebounds, and six assists as the Blazers improved to 5-0 (win-loss) after a highly physical game that saw CSB’s James Pasturan and UST’s Ira Bataller get thrown out.

    Two UST players also fouled out of the game, which followed a reported scuffle among players from both sides during a tune-up game recently.

    CSB coach Ty Tang, however, welcomed the physicality.

    “It is a very physical game,” said Tang. “I thought there were missed calls but that’s something that we need, this kind of environment. It’s going to help us toughen up. It’s been a while. They haven’t had a good physical match and it’s a good experience for us.”

    Edward Dixon had 16 points, while JJ Domingo added 14 points for the Blazers.
