SLOWLY but surely, Jollo Go is starting to feel his way into the system of coach Aldin Ayo in La Salle.
A highly touted recruit out of Hope Christian, Go initially had a hard time cracking a stacked La Salle rotation early in UAAP Season 80.
But Go reminded everyone exactly what he can do as he played a big part in the Green Archers' 75-73 win over the FEU Tamaraws on Wednesday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
The third year sharpshooter gave La Salle a spark off the bench, as he finished with 14 points while draining four of his five attempts from rainbow country.
He also scored five crucial points at crunch time, including a tough step back jumper with 3:23 left in the game to give the defending champions some breathing space, 72-65.
While most players might end up losing confidence with early season struggles, Go bared that his belief never wavered, all thanks to his teammates and coaches who've always had faith in him.
"Thankful lang ako sa mga teammates and coaches ko. Grabe ang confidence na binibigay nila," said Go.
"Every time sinasabihan nila ako na be confident lang, stick lang to the system, stick lang ako sa role ko. Binibigay ko lang yung best ko," he added.
It also helped that Go had a solid outing in their defeat to Ateneo, scattering 11 points in the loss.
Now that he's being given the green light to shoot, Go is more than willing to keep firing as his confidence continues to rise.
"Part din yun, yun nga, sa (Ateneo) game na yun. Every game naman, yung confidence na binibigay sa akin ng coaches and teammates ko," Go continued.
"Lagi ko lang iniisip na pinapayagan naman ako if open ako, bakit di ko itira? So pag open ako, tinira ko na. Thank God pumasok."
