Lyceum and Benilde Compete for Third Place in NCAA Under New Rule

MANILA, Philippines—A new league rule for NCAA Season 99 indicated that there will now be a battle for third place for virtually all of its events. “There’s a battle for third in all events… Every sport except swimming and track and field, there will be third place plaques,” said Supan in a statement. The new rule was already implemented in the taekwondo, badminton and chess events that ended a month ago. Now, in the case of the men’s basketball tournament, Lyceum and College of St. Benilde will clash to determine a third placer. Most recently on Friday, the Pirates were relegated to a battle for third after fumbling their twice-to-beat advantage to San Beda, which is returning to the Finals since 2019. Mapua outgunned the Blazers on Wednesday, 78-67. The upcoming battle for third can give a more proper send-off to graduating players Will Gozum, Robi Nayve and Miggy Corteza. Lyceum and Benilde will clash on December 10 in Game 2 of the Finals between Mapua and San Beda at Mall of Asia Arena.
