Perpetual's new era under Frankie Lim seems to be on the right track with a convincing victory versus JRU in the PBA D-League
University of Perpetual Help has just scored its biggest win in the just recently dawned Frankie Lim era after stunning NCAA rival Jose Rizal University, 88-72, on Monday at the Pasig Sports Center.
The 16-point rout was Perpetual's second straight win in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup and undoubtedly its biggest ever since multi-titled mentor Lim took over at the start of 2018.
The Altas controlled the game throughout as the Heavy Bombers shoot poorly and were dominated on the boards.
Prince Eze showed the way with 24 points, 20 rebounds and had 11 blocks to lift the Las Pinas-based squad into tying JRU in the standings with a 2-1 record.
PERPETUAL 88 — Eze 24, Villanueva 18, Coronel 11, Aurin 9, Jimenez 9, Peralta 8, Charcos 7, Antonio 2, Mangalino 0, Tamayo 0.
JRU 72 — Esguerra 21, Apinan 14, Mendoza 11, Grospe 6, Perez 6, Yu 6, Dela Virgen 5, Bordon 2, Mvogo 1, Padua 0, Pontejos 0, Tayongtong 0.
QUARTER SCORES: 17-11, 41-29, 62-53, 88-72.
