    BARANGAY Ginebra has taken a step back in the hope of moving forward in its PBA Governors’ Cup defense as it has holed up in Batangas on Monday for a three-day team-building session.

    In the middle of a long break in the season-ending conference, the defending champion Gin Kings are booked at Pico de Loro in Nasugbu until Wednesday to strengthen their bond, especially with do-it-all import Justin Brownlee.
