PERPETUAL Help looks to keep pace with the teams on top in the NCAA Season 94 when it battles Jose Rizal University on Tuesday at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan.
The Altas are targeting their fourth win in six games, hoping to tie the idle Letran Knights who are at third with a 4-2 record.
Coming off a thrilling come from behind win over San Sebastian at home, the confidence of the Altas are high, but facing a winless team like the Heavy Bombers – coach Frankie Lim knows that this is the time they should be on high alert.
“Hindi namin pwedeng balewalain yan,” said the four-time NCAA champion coach.
“They might be winless, pero laban pa rin yan. We need to stay consistent,” Lim added.
The Altas will be leaning heavily on Prince Eze who was named the Chook-to-Go NCAA Player of the Week with his heroic performance against the Stags.
Eze finished with 22 points, 16 rebounds and six blocks, highlighted by the final play where he scored off a lob to win the game for the Altas.
Expect that type of attitude from Eze moving forward.
“You know I don’t like to lose. I’ll just keep on doing everything, whatever it takes,” Eze said.
Meantime, Emilio Aguinaldo College looks to make it three in a row when it takes on College of St. Benilde in the first game at 2 p.m.
The Generals defeated the Stags and the Mapua Cardinals and the boys of coach Ariel Sison are starting to believe that they belong in this league.
“Now it’s all about consistency. Last time we had a hard time finishing games, pero now we’re learning,” said Sison.
