Bonbon Batiller carries Letran past JRU for back-to-back wins


Colegio de San Juan de Letran rallied behind Bonbon Batiller to tally back-to-back wins against Jose Rizal University, 55-43, in the NCAA Season 95 men’s basketball tournament at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City Tuesday.

Batiller is the lone Knight in double-digits with 14 points. He also tallied four rebound and four assists.

“’Yun lang ang good part na nangyari sa game, nag-step up si Bonbon,” Letran chief tactician Bonnie Tan said post-game.

“Definitely, itong season na ito kakailanganin namin isang veteran like him. Happy lang na naka-recover siya sa offense niya,” he continued.

Late in the third canto, the Heavy Bombers trimmed Letran’s deficit to six, 38-32, but it was a 10-3 in the fourth quarter that sealed the deal for the Knights.

Letran are now 2-1 in the standing while JRU remained winless in three games.
