NCAA opener: Letran faces Beda

Expect opening-day fireworks as defending champion Letran squares off with bitter rival San Beda today when the 92nd NCAA men’s basketball tournament kicks off at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.

Game time is set at 2 p.m. in a rematch of their finals encounter last season where the Knights prevailed over the Red Lions for the crown in the deciding game of their best-of-three championship series.

Retribution is in the minds of San Beda after Letran foiled the Red Lions’ six-peat bid last season.

But it would be a different ballgame now as both squads have faced major changes during the off-season, in playes and coaches.
