NCAA: Letran turns up defense in crucial win over Benilde

MANILA, Philippines—Using a stifling defense, Letran unseated College of St. Benilde at the helm and pushed its winning run to eight games on Saturday.

Letran coach Bonnie Tan said the defense made all the difference in their crucial victory as the Knights were able to clamp down on the Blazers’ main guys.

Tan challenged his big men Louie Sangalang and Pao Javillonar in limiting St. Benilde star Will Gozum and his wards delivered.

“Will (Gozum) is playing his best season and he’s running for MVP. My challenge for my bigs is to work together. I challenged Louie and Pao, asking them if two can win against one key player,” said Tan after Letran’s 74-66 win at San Juan Arena.
