San Beda’s Return to NCAA Finals Brings Joy to Yukien Andrada and Jacob Cortez

MANILA, Philippines—When the buzzer sounded at the end of the match between San Beda and Lyceum on Friday, Yukien Andrada immediately went to Jacob Cortez for a tight hug.

Cortez struggled, finishing with just seven points on a lowly 25 percent from the field.

Thankfully, his good pal Andrada came to the rescue and turned in a tremendous outing to the tune of 10 points, five rebounds and a steal to match to neutralize Lyceum’s twice-to-beat advantage.

While it was a special moment for both Cortez and Andrada, the stretch four knows that the pressure isn’t all on them  completely as they aim to take their 25th men’s basketball crown after a tough season.
