AFTER two straight semifinal exits, Sean Manganti says it’s time the Adamson Falcons get over the hump.
The Adamson Falcons are in the Final Four for the third straight year, but Manganti is eyeing bigger things – especially as he plays out his final tour of duty with the Falcons.
“It feels good but we've been doing it twice. There's a higher goal in place,” said Manganti who finished with 22 points in their 96-83 win over UST to clinch a semis berth.
“Our goal is the finals. We want to get there already and we just want to upset Ateneo,” said Manganti.
Manganti believes that they’re a much better team than the previous two squads that lost to La Salle in the semifinals for consecutive years.
Now it’s all about playing like it on a consistent basis.
“We’re a way better team than last year. That’s a given already. But we still have some lapses we’re not too consistent, and we’re still in the process of if fixing it right now,” he added.
Individually, Manganti has shown huge improvements, putting up averages of 14.5 points 4.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals to lead Adamson, holds a 9-3 record.
The 6-foot-3 forward wants to leave a mark and bring Adamson to greater heights.
“I’m gonna go hard every day in practice or game, I will give it all. I want to be remembered as somebody who put their life for Adamson,” Manganti said.
“I want to be remembered as one of the best to wear that jersey.”
