    League leaders clash as San Beda-Lyceum banners NCAA tripleheader

    Aug 20, 2019

    SAN Beda and Lyceum renew their rivalry in a Tuesday tripleheader in the NCAA Season 95 seniors basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

    The Red Lions and the Pirates, the hottest teams in the season, clash at 4 p.m. in a rematch of the title rivals for the past two years.

      Cameroonians Donald Tankoua and Mike Nzeusseu will face off anew as they'll be tasked to man the paint for San Beda and Lyceum, respectively.

      Letran (5-2) aims for a bounce back win at 12 p.m. against the skidding San Sebastian (2-3), which will miss the services of coach Egay Macaraya, who is serving his one-game suspension.

      Perpetual (2-5) also hopes that the sudden change, with interim coach Myk Saguiguit at the helm, will halt its skid when it battles cellar-dweller Emilio Aguinaldo College (1-6) at 2 p.m.

      Perpetual Help said coach Frankie Lim is on leave.
