coach Frankie Lim is back with the Altas after missing the game against the EAC Generals last Tuesday as he was on leave.
While Lim did not comment on what really transpired, there were talks that the reason behind the incident was UPHSD
's embarrassing 56-102 to defending champion San Beda Friday.
This may have led UPHSD
to send Lim on an indefinite leave.
Edgar Charcos and Ben Adamos tallied 10 apiece for UPHSD

"We congratulate the whole team and the whole of UPHSD
community is proud of the accomplishments'> said NCAA Policy Board Chair and UPHSSD president Anthony Tamayo in an interview.
