Generals seek to recover from 'nightmare' performance vs Altas as they battle winless Blazers
Coach Ariel Sison and the Generals look to bounce back when they take on the cellar-dwelling Blazers. 

EMILIO Aguinaldo College coach Ariel Sison described their performance against perpetual a 'nightmare' but he is confident the Generals can shake it off as they try to get into playoff contention.

The Generals shot a season-low 22.5 percent from the field against the Altas in the NCAA basketball tournament on Tuesday, hitting just 16 of their 71 attempts in the 70-53 defeat.

“I told them, ‘It was a bad game, tomorrow is a new day, practice uli.’ Anyway, may game pa naman sa Thursday para maka-recover from this ‘nightmare’ if I may say,” Sison said.

“I hope this is just one of their off nights. Sobrang baba ng percentage” Sison said.

The Generals slipped to 2-6 but look to cap off the first round with a victory over winless College of Saint Benilde on Thursday.

“The bad game is against Perpetual and not on Thursday,” said Sison.

With Igee King going 0 for 9 and Francis Munsayac 1 for 11, EAC import Hamadou Laminou had to bleed for his points despite a respectable statline of 14 points and 13 rebounds.

“Hindi bubuka yung Laminou para makakuha ng high percentage shot kung yung outside walang nangyayari.

“’Yun ‘yung problema namin today, napaka-tight ng offense namin, outside namin wala,” Sison said.
