    Marcelino twins provide spark and Pirates rip Chiefs to stretch unbeaten run to four

    Jul 25, 2017

    LYCEUM kept its record in NCAA Season 93 unblemished as it coasted to a 99-65 victory over Arellano University on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

    The Pirates extended their best start in the league with four wins in as many games while also tying their longest winning streak, set by the Bonnie Tan-mentored Pirates in 2013 when they won their last four games to finish with an 8-10 record.

    It was another huge win for the Chiefs after beating contenders San Beda, Jose Rizal University and San Sebastian.

    Behind the Marcelino twins, JV and JC, the Pirates jumped to an early 10 point lead in the first half before breaking the game wide open in the second half with CJ Perez joining the fray.

    Perez wound up with a game-high 16 points after struggling in the first half where he made just one of seven shots.

    “Medyo sinwerte. We caught them in a bad afternoon and we took advantage. The players stood up to the challenge of improving every game,” said Lyceum coach Topex Robinson.

    “Obviously we weren’t expecting this result. We just challenged these guys and made sure na they’re grounded and they know their purpose,” he added.
