    JAVEE Mocon said his impressive performance in Game Two will a big boost to his confidence going to the the deciding Game Three of the NCAA Season 91 men’s basketball finals on Thursday.

    Mocon played the game of his life on Tuesday, finishing with 13 points and eight rebounds off the bench in San Beda’s 68-61 win over Letran at the Mall of Asia Arena that levelled the best-of-three series at 1-1.

    Mocon has enjoyed a lot of success as a member of dominant Red Cubs teams with Arvin Tolentino, Andrei Caracut, Rev Diputado, among others, but has rarely been tested in pressure-packed situations.

    Now that he has passed his baptism of fire in Game Two, the 20-year-old expects to be an even better player in the title decider.

    “Siguro ‘yung make-carry over ko dito ‘yung confidence. It’s all about the mindset naman. It’s the same basketball game,” said Mocon.
