    BLACKWATER spent more time than usual at the SGS gym in Quezon City after practice on Thursday morning – but not for extra work as it seeks to barge into the PBA Governors' Cup win column ahead of a daunting task against San Miguel Beer on Saturday.

    The Elite were among those stranded due to the heavy rain that hit the flood-prone Araneta Ave. area caused by Typhoon Gorio.

    Elite forward Niño Canaleta posted a video on his Instragram, making light of the situation that forced the players to hang around long after the end of practice.

    It was the same venue where a national youth team, coached by Olsen Racela, was also stranded – for 20 hours – in 2012.

    Here's Canaleta's VIDEO posted on Instagram:

    Team manager Johnson Martines later confirmed members of the team were indeed stranded, but said most of the players have already made their way through the floods.

    “Nakaalis na halos mga players. Kanina mataas talaga 'yung tubig,” Martines said in a text message.
