    St. Benilde stakes unbeaten record vs Lyceum in early NCAA clash of contenders

    Aug 16, 2019

    EARLY contenders clash on Friday in the NCAA Season 95 seniors basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan when unbeaten St. Benilde takes its biggest test yet when it faces off against last year's runner-up Lyceum.

    The Blazers have gained the most of the recent postponement of games, allowing Justin Gutang to work his way back to form after suffering a sprained left MCL and a bruised right calf.

    And that worked to St. Benilde's benefit, as seen in its 82-77 win over Arellano on Tuesday to stretch its winning start to 5-0.

    But the Pirates are a different beast altogether, making the 4 p.m. tiff an early yet potential Final Four preview.

    Lyceum also has a winning run to protect, stringing four straight victories to hold a 5-1 card.

    Twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino and Mike Nzeusseu took center stage for the Pirates in their nail-biting 87-85 win over Perpetual back in August 8.

    San Beda, meanwhile, also guns for its sixth straight W when it faces off against the skidding Perpetual (2-4) at 12 p.m.

    Mapua (2-5), on the other hand, has its eyes set on a three-game win streak against Jose Rizal University (3-4) at 2 p.m.
