Letran's blazing rally in the 97th season of the NCAA continued today, April 23 2022, with an 81-59 trouncing of Jose Rizal University at St. Benilde Gym in De La Salle Greenhills, Mandaluyong City.


The Knights' skipper, Jeo Ambohot, paced his team with 14 markers on top of 12 rebounds, while Brent Paraiso delivered 12 points, two boards and three assists.


Small forward, Rhenz Abando also racked up 12 points, and Allen Mina drilled nine.


Both teams started the match in a sloppy manner, ending the first quarter with a 12-6 mark before catching fire in the next frame. 


League's current second runner in the MVP race, Ambohot, teamed up with Brent Paraiso as they punctuated an eight-point run, 35-18. 


The gap stretched to 31 points as the Bombers had difficulties stopping the Intramuros-based team, which dominated the offense side with three-pointers from Mina and a two-handed dunk from Abando. 


Kyle Tolentino drained a trey, which signified the largest difference of the match, 77-43.


The Bombers' top scorer, Jason Celis, displayed tremendous poise under pressure in trying to show some ray of hope to the Mandaluyong-based squad as he commenced a four-point rally within the last two minutes of the game.


On the other hand, Hommer Macatangay paced the Bombers with 11 points and one assist, backed up by Celis and Erol Bongay, who scattered 11 and eight, respectively.


Letran has earned the solo lead in the league as San Beda University bowed down to Mapua University. 


Letran’s next game will be on April 26 when they will face San Sebastian College-Recoletos.
