    JRU just made this a Series.

    Drawing great performances from center James Sena and forward Jayson Nocom on offense, and getting tough defense from guard John Njei and swingman Maui Pradas, the Heavy Bombers outlasted defending champion San Beda 62-60 in Game 2.

    Pradas and Njei houded the two best-scoring Red Lions - swingman Ogie Menor and pointguard Pong Escobal - to set the tone on defense early for JRU. Sena and Nocom then went to work on the scoring end, conspiring on a lot og high pick and rolls as well as two-man passing sets.

    With forward John Wilson and pointguard Jay Bulangis delivering every where else as needed the Heavy Bombers went up as much as 10 at 26-16 late in the second period. Escobal, Menor and forward-center JR Taganas however kept San Beda in it with their one on one play.

    Sam Ekwe wasn't of much use to the San Beda cause though as he suffered from early foul trouble, picking up his fourth with still the greater balance of the third quarter. He finally fouled out with just under five minutes left after he bumped Sena on a hard drive.

    In the last minute and a half it became a war of attrition with JRU hanging on to a precarious 62-58 lead. Escobal sank two freethrows to pull the Red Lions within 60-62. JRU failed to get a basket on the return play with some eight seconds left. Escobal however once again clanked a long trey attempt that sealed the win for JRU.

    (NCAA Update) San Beda wins 3rd championship

    MANILA, Philippines – This was supposed to be the most challenging season San Beda ever faced in its championship reign.

    But all the Red Lions needed was to get everyone involved for just one important game – the finals clincher.

    Shaky and at times vulnerable early in the tournament, San Beda played perfect basketball Monday to beat Jose Rizal University 85-69 and win its third straight National Collegiate Athletic Association men’s basketball championship at the Araneta Coliseum.

    It was a balanced effort by the Red Lions who appeared to have waited for the last game of the season for everyone to come together.

    And it came at the perfect time with the Red Lions’ season and their reign on the line.

    The result? College ball’s new dynasty validated.

    “It was a season of highs and lows for us but that’s what makes this championship even sweeter," coach Frankie Lim said.

    “But I never doubted this team. I’m with them almost everyday. I practice with them and I know them by heart. If there’s anybody who knows what this team is capable of doing, it’s me."

    Sam Ekwe, the league MVP, led five Red Lions in double digits with 21 points, 13 coming in the first half where San Beda established a lead that it protected until the final buzzers.

    Ogie Menor finished with 18 points, 13 in the second half.

    James Sena finished with 24 points to pace JRU. – GMANews.TV
    And that's the bottom line, because I said so!

    just wanted to ask, sino yung mga, um, older people who joined the cheering squad during the halftime cheers? were they school officials, former athletes, or former cheerleaders? parang may years pa sa jacket nila, mga 1970's.

    kakatuwa to see them help support their school*

    They are former cheerleaders nung JRC days.

    Yung daw ginawa nilang dance e ginagawa daw before.

    If I'm not mistaken, yun yata yung Bingo J na cheer nila. Kita naman natin, ever since the good ole days ng NCAA ang quality ng cheering ng JRU. They're the cheerleading champions for nothing.


    ¡ánimo San Beda! DynasTHREE Fulfilled! FOURward!
    "Why do you want this so badly?

    Because they said I couldn't have it."

    "What did he say to you to make you try so hard?

    Be the best...."
