MANILA, Philippines — Massive upset.

Lyceum of the Philippines withstood a torrid San Beda College run to score a huge 70-66 upset in the 89th NCAA men’s basketball tournament Monday, June 25, at the FilOil Flying V Arena in San Juan.

Leading by a huge 65-50 margin in the 4th, the Pirates surrendered a 16-3 run but held on after Baser Amer missed a triple.

Guard Shane Ko iced the win with two free-throws with 6.7 seconds remaining to seal Lyceum’s first victory over the 3-peat champions in the NCAA. –
