The Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights beat the College of Saint Benilde Blazers, 64-57, spoiling the latter’s entry into the semifinals of the 90th National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) seniors basketball tournament on Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan City.
The Knights finished its campaign with a 9-9 win-loss record. The Blazers, with an 11-7 card, failed to advance to the next round. Had they won, Saint Benilde could have forged a three-way tie from the third to fifth spot.
