San Sebastian played spoiler anew and continued to muddle the race to the Final Four, this time stunning Perpetual, 91-87, Tuesday in the NCAA Season 91 men’s basketball tournament at San Juan Arena.

A win for the Altas could have secured a playoff for a Final Four spot but defeat sends them into danger zone as they are only a half-a-game ahead of Arellano, Mapua, and JRU in the final four chase.

It was another big fish caught by the Golden Stags, who earlier pulled off upsets against Letran, 83-82, and San Beda, 98-92, and shook up the Final Four picture.
