DAVID will once again try to down another Goliath as Emilio Aguinaldo College faces off with defending champion San Beda on Thursday in the NCAA Season 95 seniors basketball tournament at EAC Gym in Paco.
The Generals are coming off a huge 84-82 stunner over Lyceum in what was easily the biggest shocker of the young season.
Jethro Mendoza, JP Maguliano and Marwin Taywan played big roles in delivering that upset, and coach Oliver Bunyi expects the same effort and more from those leaders if they want to make it two wins in a row.
"Sana swertehin ulit kami," he said ahead of the 4 p.m. game.
The Generals hope to finally win one in front of their home fans after coming up short in the past two seasons.
The Red Lions are coming off a 74-52 trouncing of JRU last Friday.
Evan Nelle came close to the assists record, dishing out 14, as backcourt partner James Canlas, and bigs Calvin Oftana and Donald Tankoua easily had their way in that rout.
San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez will be hard-pressed to avoid any letup as the Mendiola-based crew eyes a third straight win and solo leadership in the standings.
