to learn his lessons well fol­low­ing their Game 1 de­ba­cle, or San Beda coach Boyet Fer­nan­dez was sim­ply in his usual cun­ning style last year.

But all that is water un­der the bridge now, so to speak.

There ap­pears to be a dif­fer­ent pic­ture this year.

While San Beda showed its cham­pi­onship poise once more by dis­patch­ing Per­pet­ual with ease 83-72 in the Fi­nal Four elim­i­na­tor, Lyceum seemed more than ready to go to war.

With the Pi­rates’ 109-85 de­struc­tion of the fan­cied Le­tran Knights in the other half of the semi­fi­nals, Robin­son awed Fer­nan­dez no end.

“It will be tough for us to re­peat this year,” said Fer­nan­dez, who watched the Lyceum-Le­tran game un­blink­ing from ring­side.

But while Lyceum again has a Perez to press the Pi­rates’ au­da­cious at­tack al­most with­out letup, Robert Bolick will be San Beda’s nat­u­ral an­swer.

In punc­tur­ing Per­pet­ual on Oct. 26, Bolick fired 23 points, in­clud­ing 16 in the fi­nal half.

You have a Lion like Bolick, San Beda could be well on the way to win­ning a third straight NCAA crown in 13 years.

How well would Perez per­form will de­fine Lyceum’s aim for a first ever ti­tle. Re­venge writ­ten in his eyes?
