Still on high with a first round sweep, defending three-time champion San Beda University continues its campaign when it clashes with Emilio Aguinaldo College as second round action of NCAA Season 95 begins today at The Arena in San Juan.

Four days after going 9-0, the Red Lions return to pursue a spot in the Final Four.

San Beda and EAC face off at 12 noon to usher in the tripleheader, followed by the 2 p.m. encounter between last year’s finalist Lyceum and season host Arellano University.

Letran and Jose Rizal University clash in the final senior’s game at 4 p.m.

Despite the departure of two key players from their title campaigns the previous three years, San Beda dominated the first round.

San Beda enjoys a three-game lead on four teams with Lyceum, Letran, St. Benilde and San Sebastian bunched from second to fifth spots with 6-3 records.

As for EAC, the only win it has so far was a stunning victory over Lyceum. The Generals have dropped eight in a row since then.

Arellano, meanwhile, carries a 2-7 record, highlighted by an exciting 87-81 victory against the Pirates last Aug. 23, making their rematch a must-see.

Letran, on the other hand, Letran hopes to repeat against JRU after the Knights downed the Heavy Bombers, 55-43, last July 16.
