MANILA, Philippines—University of Perpetual Help snapped a three-game losing skid at the expense of a cold-shooting San Beda team, 75- 72, in overtime at San Juan Arena on Saturday.

Cedrick Abis and Gab Ferreras provided the crucial points for the Altas, who improved to 5-6 in the standings and dealt the Red Lions their fourth loss in 10 outings.

“I told them we will not win against a team like San Beda if we don’t defend. They’re a high-scoring team. If they want to shoot from the three-point area, they will shoot it there so I told them they really had to defend,” said Perpetual Help coach Myk Saguiguit.

The Altas’ defense also held its own, limiting Lions star James Kwekuteye to a season-low output of five points on 2-of-17 shooting from the field.
