With a 6-1 record that tops the current list, how do you think the Knights will do in the second round? The only loss came from the Red-hot Lions. While the Bombers are making a "kaboom!" on the second place spot to join the Mendiola boys. (both 5-2 after one round).

The Knights literally extinguished the flaming Blazers with a whopping 25-point margin. Final score: 90 - 65 in favor of the Letran Knights.

ARRIBA LETRAN!

Letran suffered its second straight loss as they failed to take advantage of the opportunities to pull off a win as they bowed to San Sebastian. The usually tough Knights defense was simply not 100% focused as the Stags found the open man and successfully pulled off their high-low game.

After heartbreaking losses from the Bombers and the Stags, the Knights fought their way back to forge a three-way tie on the top of the standings. Winning against the Altas secured them a logjam with defending champions and the tough contenders, San Beda and JRU respectively.

JRU Heavy Bombers 8-3
CSJL Knights 8-3
SBC Red Lions 8-3


The last three games of the Knights are expected to be tougher. Their last assignments includes the Mapua Cardinals, PCU Dolphins and their rivals, the San Beda Red Lions.

Medyo mahirap ang 3 huling laban ng Letran. Mapua is want to catch up for final 4 since they lost to St.Benilde last week. PCU Dolphins is out of contention. While SBC Red Lions want to earn twice to beat advantage. Kaya natin yan.

Letran is having problems in the 2nd round. After a 6-1 in the first round, the Knights are now 2-3 in the 2nd round.

The same goes to its main gunner, RJ Jazul. His game has taken a fall in the 2nd round as well.

another loss again by the Knights...their "spears and armors" are getting rusty...sabog ang opensa lalo na ang depensa.They are not playing their real game...very bad defense and very bad offense. My observation is that their playing style now is obviously much different than when they played in the 1st round. Mukha na silang nagkakalat ngayon. They lost to Mapua Cardinals today 69-52. :(

Well if you will compare the 1st round performance of Letran to 2nd round you will really be indifferent. Comparing a 6-1 record to a 2-3 record as of the moment is not so pleasant to see.

But you must still commend the effort of the Knights since at the very start of season 84 Alas has been saying that Letran will be lucky to enter the final 4. So I think the 2nd round performance of Letran should not be a surprise scenario. The Knights has already over-achieved with its amazing 1st round performance only losing to the NCAA power house team of San Beda.

News reports says Daa is suspended for one game after dropping an elbow on Mazo of MIT. Letran has two more games to play and the first of the two is against PCU.

Tagilid ang Knights dito.

As it is, going by the team standings, mabigat ang pressure sa Letran to win BOTH games to make the semis. Pero eto at makakalaban nila ang isang PCU na papasok sa laro ng walang ka-pressure-pressure.

PCU has consistently played good basketball for 35 minutes only to collapse at end game. Against a Dino Daa less Letran, an additional 5 minutes of sensible basketball at end game will put in peril Letran's chances of making the final four.

Eh, injured pa raw si Jazul.

If that's the case he may loose the opportunity of making it to the mythical five selection.
Sayang, he is having a career season pointswise.

That was a bonehead move by Dino Daa. Talo na nga ang Letran nagpadala pa sa init ng ulo. Nalagay pa tuloy sa alanganin ang team niya. Coach Alas was clearly pissed off at Daa when the latter went to the bench after that foul.

If Letran will lose the game against PCU and San Beda, the Knights might miss the F4 for the first time in many many years. But with or without Daa, I think Letran will work hard to beat PCU.

Good game by the Letran Knights earlier against San Beda.

Letran practically lead in the first 3 quarters and even had a 54-48 lead going into the final minute in regulation. But the Knights failed to close out the game and let San Beda crawled back in.

The Knights used their vaunted perimeter shooting as they bombarded San Beda with 8 triples. Letran's downside in this game are the turnovers and FREE THROWS. Letran went 4 out of 15 from the foul line.

Pare, when Letran pulled away during the 1st quarter, I was not really surprised.
Napaghandaan talaga ni Alas ang San Beda especially Sam Ekwe.

Talagang hindi makaporma si Sam. Mabuti na lang andyan si Dave Marcelo.

When we crawled back for a double digit deficit, I was expecting San Beda to pull away. Aba hindi pa din. Talagang handa ang Letran. Ang tigas ng dibidib.

Anyway, it was indeed a great game for both squads.

Bawi na lang Letran, kaya pa yan.

ESCALERA JR.
09-11-2008, 10:24 PM
^ CORRECT! rj jAZUL IS THE MAN WHEN THE GAME IS ON THE LINE...
the role previously held by Ronjay Enrile and most recently by Boyet Bautista before Jazul came into the Knights roster. Kanino naman kaya maipapasa ang torch when the time comes that RJ finishes his tour of duty for the Knights.

As fort the RL.,the impending exit of Pong Escobal would be safely turned over into the hands of Borgie HERMIDA and Tirona.

the knights were out of this game from the opening tip onwards. on the other hand, the bombers seemed to be on overdrive -- making basket after basket and forcing turnover after turnover. for letran diehards, this was an incredibly difficult game to watch. kudos, though, to coach vanguardia for preparing his boys well for this game. to coach louie -- we still believe in you and the boys. i hope, though, that they believe as much in themselves that they can still pull this one off. never give up, never give in!
