    San Beda's AC Soberano tempered his own expectations coming into the NCAA All-Star's three-point shootout contest.

    So the Red Lions sniper himself was shocked when he lorded over the event at the FiloilFlying V Centre on Friday.

    Soberano fired 21 points in the final round, besting rivals RK Ilagan from San Sebastian and Exe Biteng of Mapua who scored 15 and 11, respectively.

    "Hindi ko ito inexpect. Sila RK at Biteng, ine-expect ko manalo," said Soberano, who succeeded former Letran star Mark Cruz as the three-point shootout champion.

    "Pero ginawa ko na lang ang best ko at pinaghandaan ko lang talaga." he added.

    Soberano was well-prepared he even scored 23 in the first round. In the same frame, Biteng and Ilagan had 17 apiece. His strategy? Hit the balls that count the most.

    "Nag-focus lang ako sa money ball," he said.

    Other participants in the event were Arellano's Zach Nicholls, EAC's Jervin Guzman, JRU's Paolo Evardo, Letran's Rey Nambatac, Perpetual's McKevin Velasquez, and Benilde's Carlo Young.
