    RAYMAR Jose was still catching his breath when he faced reporters after his debut with Cignal ended up in a loss to Flying V, 86-84, in the PBA D-League Foundation Cup opener.

    The fatigue understandable as Jose came off an almost two-month layoff but still went all out albeit in a losing effort for the Hawkeyes at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig on Thursday.

    The Cignal newbie saw his double-double outing of 19 points and 14 rebounds go for naught as the Hawkeyes faded down the stretch against a Flying V side led by Jeron Teng.

    "Maganda naman pinakita namin pero nabitin lang," said the former Far Eastern U star, who last played for the Kaoshiung Truth in the Asean Basketball League (ABL).

    The Hawkeyes blew a 77-69 lead in the final four minutes as Teng led a 14-2 Flying V uprising and took the lead, 83-79.

    They regained the lead on Davon Potts' three-pointer, but Teng was simply too much to handle as the former La Salle star scored a three-point play off Jose to clinch the match.

    Still, Jose was just glad to be back on the basketball court against top competition.
