Letran Knights notched up on the first game of Semi Finals, with a come-from-behind win against San Beda University, 93-87, earlier today at the PBA D-League Aspirants Cup in Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

Consistent playmaker Kurt Reyson led the way for the Knights with 32 points, four assists and one steal while Kevin Santos chipped in with 17 points and four steals, along with Kyle Tolentino who contributed 10 points, four assists and three steals.

It was intense game as San Beda clinched the first half of the game, even as Letran struggled to put up points on the board. The momentum was on the Red Lions, as the Knights tried to run after, they make sure to keep up as they led on the second half of the match.

It was a close fight between the archrivals and as the momentum was on Letran, they finished the last quarter with an 81-all deadlock led them to over time.

Reyson is still pacing the Knights, together with Cuajao and Javillonar who continued to contribute as they were leading the score and build a solid teamwork with the Knights.

The Knights will continue their semifinals duel against EcoOil- La Salle Green Archers on June 13 at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City.
