Letran College leaned on a downgraded triple to nip Lyceum University of the Philippines, 80-79 in men’s basketball of Season 94 of the NCAA at Fioil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The game actually ended up knotted at 80-all with the Pirates’ Jaycee Marcelino hitting a three-pointer with 40.8 seconds to go.

It would have gone into overtime.

But game officials downgraded Macelino’s three to just a two-pointer, thus giving the Knights their 11th win against four setbacks.

The Pirates fell to their second defeat against 14 triumphs.
