    Raymar Jose hauls down 22 rebounds in a big bounce back win by FEU. Dante Peralta

    HAMPERED by fear of cramps in the past two games, Raymar Jose got his groove back and delivered for Far Eastern University.

    Jose dominated the boards, hauling down 22 in a win over University of the East that evened the Tamaraws’ record to 2-2, a huge improvement after a disappointing two weeks.

    The FEU coaching staff learned Jose had been holding back the past two games, keeping his energy in reserve for the fourth quarter to prevent a repeat of his disappointing performance in the opening match against La Salle when he had to be pulled out due to cramps.

    “He had a talk with some of our coaches and we discovered that after that La Salle game na nag-cramps siya, mina-manage niya ’yung sarili niya, meaning he is not giving 100 percent when he is on the floor kasi natatakot siya na baka mag-cramps uli sa fourth,” said coach Nash Racela.

    The champion coach said FEU doesn’t have the luxury of relaxing at any point of a match this season.

    “We were telling the team na we are not like last year na meron kaming switch-on, switch-off na kahit mag-relax kami, they can turn it on at makaka-recover kami. This year, it’s a totally different team. We have to be switch-on the whole game,” Racela said.

    Racela noted the team was on switch-on mode the entire game that led to Jose’s rebound total.

    “Today, kapag naka-on ka pala ng 40 minutes, you can get 20 rebounds. Hopefully, he learns from that. Raymar is capable of doing that every game,” said Racela.
