PERPETUAL Help got back to its winning ways with a lopsided 70-45 win over College of Saint Benilde on Thursday in the NCAA Season 92 seniors basketball tournament at the Filoil Flying V Centre.

The Altas regained their form following their lost to the San Sebastian last week, going 9-3 after the win.

The Blazers slumped to their worst start in school history after recording their 12th straight loss to start the season.

After coming off a loss, Perpetual Help was determined to get back to winning after falling to third place in the team standings.

“Galing sa talo so kailangan gawin lahat ng tama, ayun ‘yung lumabas. ‘Yung defense halos 90 percent naayos na namin kaya ganito ang resulta,” said Perpetual Help coach Jimwell Gican.

The Altas limited the Blazers to seven points in the third period en route to the lowest point output in Season 92.

“Gusto ko ibigay ‘yung credit sa players ko kasi nagtiwala sila na kaya naming gawin ‘yun,” said Gican.

Bright Akhuetie finished with 15 points, while Gab Dagangon contributed 12 points for the Altas. Gerald Dizon notched 11 markers, while Prince Eze had a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds.

JJ Domingo scored 19 points for CSB, which surpassed its worst start since the school entered the NCAA in 1998.

The scores:

UPHSD 70—Akhuetie 15, Dagangon 12, Dizon 11, Eze 10, Coronel 9, Sadiwa 6, Singongtiko 3, Hao 2, Gallardo 2, Pido 0, Yuhico 0, Ilagan 0, Mangalino 0, Oliveria 0.
