SAN BEDA and Letran clash as they go for a share of the lead in the NCAA Season 91 men’s basketball tournament on Thursday at The Arena in San Juan.

The Lions and Knights hold 2-0 win-loss cards and the winner of the match starting at 4 p.m. will join Perpetual Help on top of the standings.

The two teams are also coming off long breaks.

San Beda beat Emilio Aguinaldo College, 108-80, on July 2 and has not played because several playdates were rained out.

The Knights will be coming into the game with a lot of confidence after defeating title contender Jose Rizal University, 78-62, on July 3, their first game since Filipino boxing star Manny Pacquiao took over as team manager.

College of Saint Benilde faces Lyceum at 2 p.m.

After two straight defeats, the Blazers finally broke into the winning column, defeating winless EAC, 73-66, on July 7.

The Pirates have dropped two games and are still looking for their first win under rookie coach Topex Robinson.
