    BONG Quinto notched his third triple-double in the NCAA Season 94 while JP Calvo put on a clinical shooting display as Letran got back to its winning ways with a dominant 84-69 win over Mapua on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

    Quinto finished with 11 points, 14 rebounds, and 11 assists while Calvo finished with a career-high 26 points as the Knights bounced back from a stinging loss against San Beda and improved to 8-4.

    The Knights came away with a backbreaking second-quarter run to finally pull away from Mapua for good.

    With the Cardinals hot on their tails, Calvo then drained back-to-back threes to take the fight away in the three-minute mark of the fourth to give the Knights an 80-67 lead.

    “Good win for us. Coming off a bad game against San Beda, at least we bounced back with a statement win against Mapua. Pero hindi parin pwede kami, mag-relax,” said Letran coach Jeff Napa.

    “We need to lock down the number three spot. Kailangan trabahuhin pa rin naman mga remaining games namin para at least we secure yung spot na yun,” he added.

    The triple tower of the Knights also delivered with Christian Fajarito finishing with 10 points in limited minutes as Larry Muyang finished with nine points and nine boards while Jeo Ambohot finished with 10 rebounds, three blocks to go along eight points.
