MANILA –San Beda’s sweet-shooting guard Garvo Lanete peaked in time to hand the Red Lions a sweep of the 16-game elimination round at the 86th National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) men’s basketball.

Anchoring on its “REDemption” campaign, the Red Lions proved that heavens will paint a championship crown for them this year following a match with 2009 finals tormentor San Sebastian Stags last September 29.

Lanete drilled-in eight of his 23 points in the last canto to help the Lions repeat its mastery over the Stags this season, 90-82.

The sweep was San Beda’s and NCAA’s first since San Sebastian did the same trick in 12 games in 1997 while nailing an outright championship.
