MANILA, Philippines — San Beda guns for a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four while Arellano University seeks to stay in the hunt as the two collide in the 93rd NCAA basketball tournament at the Filoil Arena in San Juan City Thursday.

Already assured of a Final Four berth following a 65-60 win over the Jose Rizal Bombers Friday, the Lions go for win No. 13 in 14 outings that will seal them that important incentive as they tackle the Chiefs at 4 p.m.

All eyes are on Davon Potts, who was clutch in their last win after scoring eight of his 14 points in the fourth quarter.

It included a pair of booming triples that gave the defending champion a five-point cushion late.

“Credit to his work ethic,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez on the sweet-shooting Potts, who is playing his last season to apply for this year’s PBA rookie draft.

San Beda will play an Arellano U squad coming off an 84-79 triumph over Emilio Aguinaldo College Friday that breathed life to last year’s runner up’s sagging Final Four campaign as it improved to 5-8 (win-loss).

Meanwhile, St. Benilde (3-10) and Mapua (1-12) tangle at 2 pm. in a duel between the league’s two last placed teams.
