Parang minamadali namin, first quarter akala namin agad-agad bibigay sila,” he said. “Sabi nga ni coach Leo kanina, ‘Alam ko kaya nyo, pero hindi basta-basta matatalo ng ganyan-ganyan kagaya ng nilalaro nyo.’ Kailangan pa rin naming ibigay ang lahat, at kailangan nandoon pa rin yung respeto sa bawat isa.”(There’s games where we tend to underestimate the opponent because we know we can beat them. We’re rushing the games and think that they’ll fold in the first quarter. Like what coach Leo told us, ‘I know you can, but we can’t beat them easily with the way you’re playing.’ We still have to give our best and remain respectful of our opponents.)ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ PH among economies most vulnerable to virus EDITORS’ PICKlast_img
