Letran Knights, supporters celebrate ‘impossible’ title win

144

The Letran Knights ended both a decade of their own frustration and six years of domination by arch-rival San Beda Red Lions with their pulsating game three overtime victory Thursday night at the MOA Arena.

Letran alumni Kevin Louie Alas, Rey Guevarra, Kerby Raymundo and team benefactor, boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao all took to Instagram to share their piece of the historic celebration with the triumphant Knights.

Meanwhile, Letran court side reporter Myrtle Sarrosa highlighted the inspiring story of gutsy point guard Rey Nambatac, who literally placed all his marbles into getting accepted into Letran’s basketball program.

It was that kind of sheer faith displayed by Nambatac that led to the Knights’ being called NCAA champions..again.

Congrats Mark n Kracs! @cruzmark9 @kevinkentracal Good luck sa PBA!! #ArribaLetran
