MANILA, Philippines — After a horrendous start, three-peat-seeking Letran is back in the swing of things in the NCAA Season 98.

Fran Yu dished out a masterful all-around effort as the Knights brought the College of St. Benilde Blazers to their knees with an 81-75 victory yesterday to restore order at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.

“I just want to help my team in any way I can to win,” said Yu, who had 12 points, nine rebounds, six assists and the same number of steals.

The Knights reclaimed a spot in the magic four with a 2-1 record while dealing the Blazers their first defeat after three straight victories.

The back-to-back titlists also put their excruciating 72-69 defeat to Arellano U – the former’s first loss in three years – last Sunday behind them.

CSB kept the solo lead despite the defeat.

In the other game, University of Perpetual Help edged Mapua, 79-77, to improve to 2-2.

The Cardinals slipped to 1-3.
