NCAA titlist San Beda rode on the hot shooting of Chami Diputado to pull off a come-from-behind 76-74 win over Hope Christian High School in the 3rd Philippine Secondary Schools Basketball Championship Ironcon Builders Cup on Sunday at the Chiang Kai Shek College gym.
Chami Diputado had 29 points on 9-of-18 shooting and dished out six assists to lead the Red Cubs to their second straight win in Group D and into the crossover quarterfinals slated this Saturday.
Diputado made five triples, the last coming in the final 10.7 seconds that turned out to be the game-winning basket.
"We really had a hard time because of Jolo Go's shooting. Luckily, the team remained focused and Chami made that important shot," said SBC coach JB Sison.
