“We just have to use our experience. Hindi tayo pwedeng makipagsabayan sa kanila. We have to settle down,” said Globalport-MisOr head coach Vis Valencia.
(We just have to use our experience. We cannot just play at their pace. We have to settle down.)
“‘Yun ‘yung advantage ng may beterano, hindi sila nag panic.”
(That is the advantage of having veterans in the team. They will not panic.)
Joel Lee Yu added a complete statline of 14 points, 7 rebounds, and 6 assists, while Nalos, a former guard of the KCS Mandaue City also got 14 points of his own.
Rendell Dela Rea, who also serves as an assistant coach, paced the Archangels with 19 points built on four triples.
