Since joining the NCAA (Phil) in 1984, the senior varsity basketball team only made the NCAA Finals twice. In spite of the poor financial support, their biggest run was 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 that joined in the 20th century to have never clinched 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.

NameEdit

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.
