Lyceum University Pirates
Updated Wednesday June 25, 2014 - 9:00am

Lyceum is eyeing not just to do good in basketball but also in all other sports as it bids for regular membership when the 90th NCAA season unfurls on June 28 at the MOA Arena in Pasay.

The Pirates are coming off creditable performances last season, their best since entering the league several years ago, finishing tied for sixth place with the Arellano U Chiefs.

Lyceum hopes to use it as a springboard to bigger successes this year.

"We're optimistic of our chances not just in basketball but in the other sports as well because we've recruited some good athletes for this year," said Lyceum's athletic director and Management Committee member Hercules Callanta.

The Pirates have also shored up their frontcourt, tapping a 6-5 Cameroonian in Mbida Essono to provide some relief to a smaller but scrappy Issah Mbomiko also from Cameroon.

Lyceum has also kept its backcourt troika of Shane Ko, Jeremiah Taladua and Wilson Baltazar, who should provide Essono and Mbomiko the support.

"If things work out as we planned, we're looking at a Final Four finish," said Lyceum mentor Bonnie Tan. - Joey Villar
