Lyceum of the Philippines University took College of St. Benilde’s best shot, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre, but still pulled off a 85-83 decision that keeps it at solo second in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

The Pirates figured in a tight tiff with the Blazers until the former turned on the pressure cooker and held the latter to scoreless from the 3:27 to the 1:03 mark of the final frame.

At the other end, Jaycee Marcelino and Mike Nzeusseu’s aggressiveness paid dividends as they were sent to the line where they hit all four of their free throws.

Those, coupled with a steal and score by Marcelino put LPU on top, 82-73.
