Letran's Caralipio named new Hanes 1-on-1 champ

SAN JUAN, MM—Colegio De San Juan De Letran Knight King Caralipio defeated Lyceum of the Philippines University’s Jamba Garing, 8-7, in the finals of the Hanes One-On-One King of the Hardcourt at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The 21-year old from Moncada, Tarlac admitted he was tired from playing the quicker Garing, but he decided to continue to post up the smaller Pirate.

Garing raced to an early 7-2 lead off a triple and a pair of lay-ups.

Caralipio on the other hand, missed three straight pointblank stabs.

But in his last three post-ups with the five-minute game clock perilously ticking away, he was able to score three straight baskets to pip the fancied Garing.

“Alam ko na prestigious yung one-on-one competition na noong 1980's pa raw,” said Caralipio who is in his second year with the Knights after playing with Letran’s Team B for two seasons.

“Malaking karangalan na manalo hindi lang para sa pamilya ko kasama na rin yung iskuwelahan ko na Letran at bayan ko ng Tarlac.”

Said Garing who didn’t drop a game heading into the finals, “Napagod ako sa physical defense ni King.”
