    LETRAN clinched the eighth and last quarterfinal berth by downing National University, 81-65, in the 1st Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship Sunday at the Chiang Kai Shek College gym in Manila.

    Rey Nambatac, one of the most-sought after college prospects, put on another solid all-around performance as the Squires snapped a three-game losing run to secure the last ticket to the knockout quarterfinal stage set on Sunday.

    It was a disappointing show for the Bullpups, who were favored to win but crumbled in the face of Nambatac’s red-hot shooting in their Group B showdown.

    In a showdown between fierce Metro Manila Tiong Lian Basketball Association rivals, Chiang Kai Shek College outlasted Xavier School, 68-57.

    With their third straight win, the Blue Dragons topped Group A with a 3-1 card followed by San Sebastian (2-2) and Xavier (2-2). FEU also finished with a 2-2 card but had inferior quotient.

    Meantime, also-ran Ateneo ended its campaign with a 65-62 win over San Sebastian, its first win in four games in the 10-team tournament sponsored by Dickies Underwear, MEC Networks, Jumbo Plastic Linoleum, Blackwater Sports, Wrangler, Welcoat House Paints, Ironcon Builders and Hapee Toothpaste.

    San Beda College, the reigning and 20-time NCAA champion, swept the Group B eliminations and will face No. 4 Far Eastern University in the quarterfinals showdown.

    In other pairings, Chiang Kai Shek College takes on Letran, Hope Christian battles Xavier and SSC takes on UST. The one-game finals will be aired on Basketball TV through the sponsorship of BonChon Chicken and Davies Paints.
