NCAA Season 94: Altas end three-game slide
University of Perpetual Help rediscovered its winning ways with a dominating win over Arellano University in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition .

University of Perpetual Help held Arellano University to only four field goals in the first half to cruise to an easy 57-45 win Tuesday in the NCAA Season 94 seniors basketball competition at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The Altas welcomed the return of Edgar Charcos, who was out for two games after suffering a hyperextended right knee, with a morale-boosting win that snapped their three-game losing streak.

The Las Pinas-based squad improved to 6-5 win-loss record, half a game behind no. 4 College of St. Benilde (7-5).

Prince Eze finished with 20 points and 19 rebounds while Rey Peralta added 10 markers for the Altas. Jelo Razon chipped in nine points while Charcos had six markers, four boards, four assists and four steals in 33 minutes of play.

Perpetual broke the game open with an impressive defensive display in the second set as they limited the Chiefs to only four points while building a 33-14 halftime advantage.

“We made good stops and pagkatapos nu’n magada ang itinakbo namin sa offense para silang (Arellano U) nag-breakdown eh,” said Altas coach Frankie Lim, who made Perlta and Razon do suicide run after the game for apparently missing easy layups.

The Altas went up by as much as 27 points in the third quarter.

Michael Canete had 15 points and 13 rebounds while Maui Sera Josef had eight for Arellano, which had a bad shooting day with 13-of-72 field goals.

Perpetual dropped to 4-7 card.
