Colegio de San Juan de Letran exacted revenge on one of its tormentors in the first round of the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament, rampaging through San Sebastian College-Recoletos in the final frame for a convincing 99-82 victory, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

Jeo Ambohot’s follow up to end the third quarter sparked a 16-2 charge that turned a close contest, 68-65, in favor of the Knights into a blowout, 84-67, inside the last seven minutes.

The Golden Stags would try to mount a rally, of course, but they could only come as close as 15 the rest of the way.
