SAN JUAN, Metro Manila--Yukien Andrada got the redemption that he sought as he lifted San Beda to a 65-61 squeaker over College of St. Benilde on Wednesday and back into the Final Four hunt in NCAA Season 99 at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.

Andrada was nothing short of electric as he painted a 22-point masterpiece in powering the Lions to their ninth win against six defeats while keeping them in the semis race.

Andrada’s glorious effort came just three days after a painful experience that saw him miss a potential game-changing three-point shot in a 71-69 heartbreaker to Mapua.

That shot hit nothing but the sideboard.

He was so embarrassed that he was seen sulking in one corner right after that excruciating defeat.

Andrada, however, made sure to bury the ghost of the past after leading San Beda to this massive win.

The Blazers dropped to 10-6, good for joint No. 3 with Jose Rizal U.
