Games today:

(Filoil EcoOil Centre)

9:30 a.m. — JRU vs San Beda

3 p.m. — Mapua vs Lyceum


University of Perpetual Help prevented San Sebastian College from lighting up the scoreboard as the Altas rolled to a 64-50 victory over the Stags yesterday in Season 99 National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball tournament at the Filoil EcoOil Arena in San Juan.

The Altas held the Stags to a season-low output to rack up their second win in six outings, allowing them to revive their aspirations on the strength of their stifling defense.

Skipper Jelo Razon was at the forefront of UPHSD’s attack with 14 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three steals while Christian Pagaran and Marcus Nitura scattered 14 and 13 points, respectively.

But it was defense that got the job done for the Altas.

The Las Piñas-based dribblers forced their counterparts from Mendiola to miss 51 of 68 shots, including 20 of 24 attempts from beyond the arc.
