Jerrick Balanza embodies the “Never Give Up” attitude.

For the first time since his brain tumor surgery, the Knights guard personally watched his Letran teammates battle against the Lyceum Pirates, on Friday at the Filoil Flying V Arena.

Balanza proved to be Letran’s lucky charm, as his team took down the Pirates in a controversial fashion, 80-79.
