Generals eye share of lead

 EMILIO Aguinaldo guns for a share of the lead when it clashes with Letran while defending champion San Beda tries to get back on track against St. Benilde today in the 93rd NCAA basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.

Cameroonian Hamadou Laminou and team captain Sydney Onwubere came through with double-double performances to power the Generals to a 74-64 victory over the Blazers last Friday.

A victory over the Knights, who fell to the Mapua Cardinals 75-78 last week, in their battle at noon will catapult the Generals to the top alongside the Lyceum Pirates, who shocked the Lions 96-91 last Friday.

The 6-foot-10 Laminou powered his way to 21 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks while Onwubere had 11 points, 14 boards, four assists, three steals and a block and should be marked men during the game.

“We will rely on them the whole season and I expect them to come up big again,” said EAC coach Ariel Sison of the two.

The Lions are expected to vent their ire on the Blazers in their 2 p.m. duel.

Arellano U and Jose Rizal U clash at 4 o’clock, bidding to come out of a heavy six-team logjam at third with San Beda, St. Benilde, Mapua and host San Sebastian.
