IS Ynares Sports Arena starting to become Isaac Go's favorite court?
If his recent showings in the Pasig venue is to be judged, then that might just be the case.
Just look at how he torched the net during the Philippine Collegiate Champions League semifinals against San Beda where his stellar outside shooting towed the Blue Eagles to the title.
Go once again turned the Ynares Sports Arena as his personal playground, this time for Cignal-Ateneo.
The 6-foot-8 forward once again found his stroke from deep and shot 4-of-6 from downtown to lead the Blue Eagles with 21 points, while also grabbing four rebounds in their 103-75 win over Go for Gold-CSB to open his side's 2019 PBA D-League campaign.
Yet for the 23-year-old, he shrugged off that notion.
"You see that, but you didn't see the times I actually played here and played bad. And you haven't seen (how I was playing) before in high school," he said smiling.
Go, though, said that it's all purely coincidental and if he continues this sweet-shooting spree, then he won't really be complaining.
"I've played here a lot of times. I've had good and bad games, and I think I've gotten used to it. And I hope I get more consistent," he said.
The senior stretch big man, however, said that the spotlight isn't all on him as the main goal for Cignal-Ateneo is to prepare itself for its mother league UAAP later on this year.
"We're looking at this tournament for us to develop as a team and we wanna play our game. If we can see that it's a dominating win, then we'll take it. If we're not good enough to beat teams and we lose by 20, we'll also take it. Our end goal is to develop each player to the best individual and this tournament is helping us do that," he said.
Go aims to sustain that groove in a different venue when Cignal-Ateneo meets Family Mart-Enderun at Paco Arena on Monday.
