Defending champion San Beda University flirted with disaster before mustering a crucial scoring barrage midway in the fourth quarter for a 73-59 victory over San Sebastian College on Friday in the NCAA Season 95 seniors basketball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Red Lions unleashed a 12-0 burst within the final five minutes of the ball game to turn a 48-50 deficit to a 60-50 lead with three minutes left as San Beda captured its fourth straight victory at the top spot.
