    SAN Sebastian notched its first victory in the NCAA Season 98 seniors basketball tournament, holding off Arellano, 60-51, Tuesday at Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.

    Tristan Felebrico nailed the game-icing three-point play with 1:41 remaining to make it a nine-point edge as the Golden Stags survived the Chiefs' rally from a 15-point hole.

    Arellano mounted a late surge to get to within six points, 57-51, after a Joshua Abastillas putback with 1:50 left, but Felebrico was quick to answer back as San Sebastian buckled down on defense late.
