Cagayan de Oro’s Carlo Lastimosa led all scorers with 20 points but his effort wasn’t enough as the College of St. Benilde Blazers lost to the San Sebastian Stags, 74-75, in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan yesterday.

Anthony del Rio missed three charities but hit the fourth foul shot that proved to be the marginal point for the Stags, who posted a big 68-51 lead midway in the final period but nearly squandered it in the face of the Blazers’ fiery fightback led by Lastimosa and Mark de Guzman. Lastimosa eventually fouled out down the stretch.

The Blazers fell to their third defeat against a win.
