    USED to being on top with Ateneo's juniors team, Joe Silva now has to deal with the pain in college ball as the Red Warriors dropped to 1-9 for the tournament, the first to be eliminated from UAAP Season 81.

    "Buti nalang okay ang support system ko all the way from my family friends fellow coaches and school," said Silva after their 79-68 defeat to the UST Growling Tigers on Sunday.

    "It's a learning process for me. Maturity ko as a coach, kung anong dapat gawin," he added.


    Silva isn't taking the elimination too hard, but what he won’t take lightly is the lack of fight from some of his players, although he did not mention names.

    "Actually pagpasok namin sa dugout di na ako masyadong nagsalita. Pumasok school officials ang sinabi nila most of you guys played your hearts out, some of you alam naming hindi," Silva shared.

    "Coming from school officials. Malaking bagay yun cause some are engaged, some arent focused. Yun ang gusto ko baguhin talaga," he added.

    The two-time juniors champion coach is taking a very patient approach.

    "Unang gusto kong dalhin sa UE yung palag lang. I never said we'll make it to the Final Four, sabi ko we'll try to sneak in some wins. Any win we can get okay na sa community yun," Silva said.
