Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netOn the cusp of a 10th title in 12 years, San Beda isn’t letting go of its underdog label the way Lyceum isn’t giving up on its dream of nailing a first NCAA crown.After pinning on the Pirates their first NCAA Season 93 loss in Game 1 of the title series, the Red Lions hope to come out strong and sew up the crown Thursday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.ADVERTISEMENT It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson “This is the finals,” said Mocon. “This is a test of character. We would like to show everybody that although Lyceum has all the heart, we want to show that we have a bigger heart because we are champions.”The series opener followed the trend of the two elimination round meetings between the two powerhouse squads won by the Pirates. Only this time, the Lions found their stride in crunch time with Bolick doing most of the damage.But instead of sulking shortly after their first loss in 19 games, Lyceum coach Topex Robinson owned up to the defeat and vowed that his troops will be ready for war on Thursday.Robinson was particularly happy with the way the Pirates fought even after the Lions took a comfortable nine-point edge heading into the final seconds.“The players—we could have just rolled down and died,” said Robinson. “But they just wanted to fight. That’s how we always honor the game, by giving our best until that final buzzer. We’re not gonna just roll down and die.”ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Redemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie Thompson Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles05:02SEA Games 2019: Philippines clinches historic gold in women’s basketball06:27SEA Games 2019: No surprises as Gilas Pilipinas cruises to basketball gold02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award View commentslast_img
