FRUSTRATIONS within the Cebu City Sharks-Casino Ethyl Alcohol are nearing fever pitch as the downward spiral continued on Tuesday night after they got blown out by the Imus Bandera, 90-61, in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Datu Cup over at the Imus City Sports Complex.

The Sharks were within two, 32-34, at halftime when the wheels suddenly fell off in the third, where they got outscored, 11-30, and eventually lose their seventh game against a single win, the worst record in the league. The Cebuanos trailed by as much as 31 points in the game.

Patrick Cabahug and William McAloney led the Sharks with 15 points each.

Cabahug relayed that he and the rest of the team are at wit’s end, trying to look for the light at the end of the tunnel.

“All I can say is that I did not sign up to lose every game. Hanggang sa makakaya ko, I will try to gather the team and get us all together on one page,” shared the former pro, who added that it’s not too late to turn things around.

“Sobrang taas na ng frustrations ng team namin ngayon, but it’s not too late pa para mag give up na kami. As a veteran, I need to gather my teammates and voice out kung anong dapat i-fix sa team and ask ourselves kung ano talaga goal namin sa isa’t-isa.”

The Sharks’ team manager, Mark Castillo, said that the process is still ongoing for their young squad.

“It’s but normal for a team to lose games especially if you’re an expansion team from the south and representing Cebu City at that and a very known company. This is a young core of players who’s just experiencing how competitive basketball here in Manila is.

“But still we are working hard and telling them to work hard in practice and let the past games be a lesson on how to adjust. It’s unfortunate lang na there were close games that we ended up on the losing end.”
