    Joey Barcuma chipped in 13 points, six rebounds, and two assists as Perpetual continued to miss the services of lead guard Jielo Razon, who is feeling under the weather for the second straight game.

    "Sabi ko sa players ko, yung remaining games namin, bigyan namin ng sarili namin pare-parehas kung paano dapat maglaro ng basketball," said coach Myk Saguiguit.

    With the Altas holding a tight 56-52 lead in the final seven minutes of the game, Barcuma's freebies sparked a 6-0 spurt for his side to erect a 10-point edge, 64-54 with 4:06 to play.

      Perpetual's defense then took it home as it claimed back-to-back wins to improve to 7-9 despite already being out of the Final Four race.

      Joshua Guiab led JRU with 16 points and nine rebounds as seven other players came back from their one-game suspensions in the fallout of the John Amores controversy.
