    ARWIND Santos insisted he had no regrets after missing a close-range shot that could’ve sealed the win for San Miguel Beer in its 97-96 loss to Ginebra in Game Four of their PBA Governors’ Cup semifinal series on Friday night.

    With the Beermen up by one, the SMB star caught a pass from Marcio Lassiter in transition before taking and missing a close-range stab over Sol Mercado with still 19 seconds left in a play where they could’ve milked the clock dry instead and drew a foul.

    “No, bakit ko pagsisisihan yun? Tira ko yun eh,” Santos insisted. “Hindi lang pumasok. May mga sitwasyon talaga na minsan, hindi komo lahat ng magagaling hindi nagkakamali.”

    “As a player, kayang-kaya ko i-handle yung mga ganyan,” he added. “Kasi pag ako, hindi ko kaya i-handle ‘to, hindi ako makakaabot sa nararating ko ngayon.”

    Santos’ bad decision - and botched shot - negated the two go-ahead jumpers he knocked down for SMB in two previous possessions.

    “Oo naman (akala ko panalo na after nung jumper) kasi lumamang na kami,” Santos admitted. “Kung hindi naman na-shoot ni Japeth (Aguilar), eh di talo sila, ‘di ba? ‘Yun lang naman ‘yun. God is good at na-shoot lang nila.”

    “Pero hindi lagi sa kanila,” he added. “Baka malay mo, Game Four, kami naman.”
