The Perpetual Atlas or UPHSD Altas(who used the acronyms PHCR (1984–96), UPHR (1996–2004), UPHDS (2004–2005) and UPHSD (2006–08) previously) are the National Collegiate Athletic Association (Philippines) basketball team of the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA. They are also popularly known as the "Perps"

From the start till the present, the Senior Varsity team only made the NCAA Finals twice. In spite of the poor financial support their biggest run was back in the late 1980s led by the "big three" Bong Hawkins, Eric Quiday, and Ronald Sy against the SSCR Stags' "big three" Paul Alvarez, Eugene Quilban, and Nap Hatton. They are the only NCAA basketball team never to clinch a championship.

The senior varsity teams may also be referred to as the Altas. The juniors team are the UPHSD Junior Altas, while the women's teams are the UPHSD Lady Altas.

Name[edit]

The moniker ‘Altas’ comes from the Latin word “height,” symbolizing UPHSD's aspirations for further greatness. At the same time, it comes from the initials of the school founder, Dr. Antonio L. Tamayo.
