Riding high after taking down top seed Lyceum, University of Perpetual Help continued its winning ways after fending off Jose Rizal University, 85-73, in the NCAA Season 94 men’s basketball tournament Tuesday at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

AJ Coronel set the tone, scoring 15 of his career-high 22 points in the first quarter, while Prince Eze saved his best for last with 10 of his 16 points coming in the fourth period to power the Altas, who joined College of St. Benilde in fourth place with an 8-5 record.
