The Colegio hosted the Canada-based Dream Hoops ball club last July 19 for the 2nd Letran – Fil-Canadian Exhibition Games held at the Blessed Antonio Varona Ortega, OP.
Dream Hoops, which was composed of young Fil-Canadian cagers from Vancouver, is a team from the Dream Hoops Academy founded by Letran alumnus, Nap Santos.
Santos played for the Letran Knights from 1993 to 1996.
“I am very much ‘Arriba Letranista,’ he said during the opening ceremony.
Santos’ team faced the Letran squad headed by Coach RJ Guevarra in two events: 14-Under and 16-under.
Letran won the 14-under game, 54 – 69, whil Dream Hoops took the 16-under skirmish, 83 – 77.
Raphael Alcoreza, who led Dreams Hoops to the win in the last game, expressed his appreciation to Letran for the warm welcome.
“The fans here are great,” he said, referring to the Basic Education students who watched.
The Canadian team was given a campus tour by the Office of Alumni and Public Affairs afterwards.
The affair was organized by the Athletics Office.
