Saint Benilde eyes rebound

Games today:
(Filoil EcoOil Centre)
12 p.m. — Perpetual vs EAC
3 p.m. — Saint Benilde vs JRU

College of Saint Benilde aims to get back on the winning track and fortify its hold of the solo second spot when it faces Jose Rizal University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association Season 98 men’s basketball competition today at the Filoil EcoOil Centre in San Juan.

Reeling from a sorry 66-74 defeat at the hands of league-leading three-peat-seeking Letran College last Saturday, the Blazers look to bounce back in their 3 p.m. battle to boost their Final Four bid.

Meanwhile, University of Perpetual Help and also-ran Emilio Aguinaldo College cross paths in the curtain-raiser at 12 p.m.

Saint Benilde head coach Charles Tiu hopes his wards learned their lesson from their previous outing where the Blazers crumbled under pressure in the final minutes.

“We need to learn how to be more composed down the stretch. We panicked and wanted to go for the kill all the time and went away from what’s been working for us. Making shots would help,” Tiu said.
