University of Perpetual Help coach Frankie Lim has taken a "leave", team and school officials said on Saturday.

San Beda juniors coach Myk Saguiguit will be taking over Lim’s post temporarily.

"Coach Frankie Lim is on leave, as per the decision of the (executive committee) of University of Perpetual Help System-DALTA," athletic director Sammy Acaylar said in a report posted on ABS-CBN Sports

Saguiguit is expected to coach both the seniors and the juniors teams.

After reaching the semifinals last year, Lim and the Altas have lost 5 of their 7 games, with their last defeat a 46-point rout in San Beda's hands on Friday.

ABS-CBN Sports reached out to Lim for comment, but the coach has yet to respond as of posting time.
