Lyceum of the Philippines University has the number of Colegio de San Juan de Letran thus far in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament as the former has now swept the latter in the elimination round.

Marcelino twins Jaycee and Jayvee propelled the Pirates anew and the Knights just couldn’t keep up, 97-90, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre.

Jaycee soldiered on even after being ill the past five says and still scored 25 points, all but five in the second half, on top of three rebounds and two assists while twin Jayvee had his own two markers, three dimes, three steals, and two boards. "Yesterday lang siya bumalik (sa practice). He just played his heart out today," a beaming head coach Topex Robinson said post-game.

Reymar Caduyac was also there, scoring six of LPU’s last nine points as they strengthened their stranglehold on solo second now at 10-3.
