MANILA, Philippines - University of Santo Tomas and Letran play each other tomorrow at the Letran gym in Intramuros in a benefit game to help in relief efforts for victims of Super Typhoon Yolanda.
Letran athletic moderator Fr. Vic Calvo, OP, yesterday announced the Knights and the Tigers, who finished runners up in their respective leagues, NCAA and UAAP, will play at 2 p.m. with tickets pegged at P300 each.
“We had this joke that it will be a match between the lonely Knights and the crying Tigers because we both lost in our leagues, us in the NCAA and them in the UAAP,” said Calvo. “But joking aside, we decided to play a game for a cause for our countrymen in need.
“We will also welcome donations in cash and in kind aside from the tickets,” he added.
Calvo said the whole of the Caloy Garcia-coached Letran team that lost to San Beda and the Pido Jarencio-mentored UST squad, which bowed to La Salle will be there in a solid show of support.
They include Letran’s Raymond Almazan and UST’s Jeric Teng, who were both drafted by Rain or Shine in the PBA rookie draft recently.
Meanwhile, San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez announced the four-peat champion Lions will hold their bonfire on Friday at it
