    FRANKIE Lim has taken a leave as head coach of the Perpetual Altas.

    School's athletic director Sammy Acaylar confirmed the news, saying the four-time NCAA champion coach briefly leaving the squad following a poor start to the season.

    "Coach Frankie Lim is on leave, as per the decision of the ex-com of University of Perpetual Help System DALTA," he said in a brief text message.

    Without last year's MVP Prince Eze, Perpetual stumbled to a 2-5 card in the ongoing seniors basketball tournament, losing five of its last six games.

      Junior Altas coach Myk Saguiguit will handle the reins for the seniors team in place of Lim.

      Perpetual is coming off a Final Four appearance last year, finishing with an 11-7 card before bowing to eventual champion San Beda.
