Charles Tiu expects finals date with Letran: ‘They are the bullies out here’


College of St. Benilde’s head coach Charles Tiu expects to see Letran in the NCAA Season 98 Seniors Basketball Finals.

After all, they pack a loaded lineup and are the two-time defending champions.

“It’s nice to have a game like that na ang daming nagchecheer both sides. So It was good,” said Tiu after their 62-61 win against the Red Lions that ended the Blazers’ 20-year Finals drought.

“I think we need to be physical against Letran. Everybody knows they’re a physical team,” he continued.

“They are the bullies out here.”

It was no secret that the Blazer’s tactician has been craving a win against the defending champions and has been open about it since the beginning.

“You guys asked me and I told you before that I hope to see Letran in the Finals because that meant that we would make the Finals,” he expressed.

“I think maybe we’d have a chance. I’m not saying Lyceum is not gonna win, but I’m saying [I think] we’ll end up seeing Letran.”

Both teams faced each other twice already during the eliminations but St. Benilde was on the wrong end of both matches, losing 75-80 in their first meeting followed by a 66-74 in round two.

Still, Tiu assured them that they will be hundred percent ready for whoever they face in the biggest stage of the tournament.NCAA-98-CSJL-vs.-AU-Bonnie-Tan-0669 Charles Tiu expects finals date with Letran: 'They are the bullies out here' Basketball CSB NCAA News  - philippine sports news

“We’re here and we’re expecting Letran to win, but if it’s Lyceum so be it. We’ll just try our best to prepare for the Finals,” said Tiu.
