LETRAN is on a three-game winning streak, and coach Jeff Napa is pleased to see the Knights offense run the way he wants to.

"Ito yung pinaka magandang game ni nilaro namin so far," said Napa.

"Nakukumbinse ko na talaga sila na ito gusto kong mangyari. Sumusunod na talaga sila, true soldier na," he said. 

Getting a big lift from its shooters — 9 of 18 from beyond the arc with five from McJour Luib — the Knights dealt Arellano its first loss this season. 

The Knights also played decent defense in the fourth, and outscored the Chiefs, 27-18.

Napa took over Letran from Aldin Ayo and started the season with a loss to San Beda, but is now closing in on the leaders.

"Although may mga mistakes pero given naman yun. Yung committment nila sa system at sa samahan, yun yung pinakamagandang nanngyayari sa kanila."

Napa now focuses on stretching the streak when they face san Sebastian next.

"Hopefully maging consistent kami all throughout the season," he said.
