MANILA, Philippines — Whether or not it’s Lyceum or San Beda in the NCAA finals, one thing is for sure: Mapua will be “obsessed” with his preparations.

After advancing to the NCAA Season 99 finals at the expense of the University of St. Benilde, 78-67, Mapua guard Clint Escamis said the Cardinals didn’t care who would be their opponent in the championship round.

Escamis, who finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals, said they were already all set to prepare against the Blazers in just the last four games, so what more could you ask for in the Finals?

“Really, whoever wins, we will rally hard for it. We will probably be obsessed with this group. Every day we watched CSB film for this sport,” said Escamis, the MVP favorite.

“Our aggression and preparation for work is crazy. It’s definitely on a different level now.

Returning to the finals after missing the final four seasons last season, the Cardinals are closely watching the collision between the Red Lions and the Pirates, who maintain a two-to-beat advantage after finishing at No. 2.

A San Beda victory forges a rubber match scheduled for Friday, giving Mapua more time to relax and prepare.

“However, we have a project. We will be ready. A very important factor for these players is to get their legs and mind back into shape. In fact, the final is a physical and psychological battle,” said coach Randy Alcantara.

Alcantara even mocked Escamis for missing three free throws.

“As far as drills go, maybe I’ll make this man (Escamis) make 5,000 free throws.”

The last time Mapua reached the final was just two seasons ago, when he was swept aside by Letran.
