The Altas improved to 4-10, out of the running for a semifinal but could complicate matters for Final Four contenders Letran, Mapua and San Sebastian in their succeeding matches.

Peralta, who spent most of his time on the bench in previous outings, exploited the break given to him by coach Frankie Lim after also pulling down nine rebounds when he pinched hit for Kim Aurin in the rotation.
