University of Perpetual Help System Dalta pulled away in the third quarter and never looked behind en route to a 93-82 debut win over PSP Gymers in the 2023 Philippine Basketball Association D-League Aspirants’ Cup Tuesday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.

The Altas exploded for 32 points in the third frame that proved to be the telling tale after an airtight first-half as they kept the Gymers at bay from there on.

We really need this win because this will be the start of our journey throughout the year. It’s an early warning sign for us and we’re fortunate to win,” said head coach Myk Saguiguit, who witnessed the impressive debut of PSP against Marinerong Pilipino-San Beda last week.

Arthur Roque chalked up 27 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes of play to banner the balanced attack of the Altas, who also drew 16 points from Cyrus Nitura.

Skipper Jielo Razon and Carlo Ferreras chipped in 13 markers apiece while Mark Omega hauled down 15 rebounds plus six points, a steal and a block.

Jayvee de la Cruz fired 23 points for the Gymers, who could not essay another come-from-behind win after bridging the gap to as close as five points, 64-69, early in the fourth.

Val Acuña (16) and Dariel James Bayla (15) also put up solid efforts for PSP (1-1).
