    JOSE Rizal University stretched its win streak to five games, stunning Lyceum, 63-57, on Friday in the NCAA Season 98 seniors basketball tournament at the Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.

    The Heavy Bombers fought back from a 56-47 in the final five minutes behind a killer 16-1 finishing kick to put an end to the Pirates' own five-game win run. The Pirates were held to just eight points in the payoff period - and without a field goal in the last 5:13.

      John Amores did his damage too with eight points, three rebounds, and two assists. His tough layup over Shawn Umali made it a two-possession game for the Heavy Bombers, 61-57, with 26.8 seconds remaining.
