      "Very proud," said coach Oliver Bunyi. "Kaya nga sabi ko kung nakuha lang namin yung ganitong character from the start, baka iba ang nangyari. But then again, there’s this still the future for them to play basketball and sana itong last game na ito, madala nila. On how to handle the pressure, how to keep composure, madala nila for the next season."
