Lyceum of the Philippines University yet again had a tough time against Arellano University in their rematch in the NCAA 95 Men's Basketball Tournament, but this time around, the former had all the answers for the latter.

Behind Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee, the Pirates went on a late surge to propel past first round tormentor Chiefs for a 93-90 decision, Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

The chaos-creating brothers turned it on in the endgame, spearheading the 11-2 run that turned a two-point edge, 81-79, into a 90-81 advantage in favor of LPU.

Arellano didn't quit just yet in the last two minutes, however, as Kent Salado and Gelo Sablan shot them to just within 90-92 with 21.7 ticks to go.
