    The Cubs routed the Letran Squires, 96-83, to stay on top with a 14-1 (win-loss) record and should be favored to win over the Brigadiers, who are already out of it all with a 2-12 slate, in their 12:30 p.m. encounter.

    Sam Abu Hijle and Joshua Tagala have been leading a San Beda team, which is seeking an unprecedented eighth-straight championship, that has been relying on a balanced attack the whole season by averaging 14.3 and 11.5 points, respectively.

    “That’s our next goal, to get that twice-to-beat advantage,” said San Beda coach JB Sison.

    Also battling San Beda for the important Final Four impressive are Arellano University, St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills and Mapua, who are at second, third and fourth spots with 13-2, 12-3 and 11-3 cards, respectively.

    The Braves and the Junior Blazers, however, could bump off each other out of the tight race as the two collide at 10:45 a.m.

    The Robins, for their part, face off the Squires at 9 a.m.

    In the other games of the day, San Sebastian (2-12) tackles Lyceum of the Philippines (7-8) at 2:15 p.m. while Jose Rizal (2-12) battles Perpetual Help (4-11) at 4 p.m. in a pair of non-bearing duels.
