JONATHAN Grey is glad to bounce back after a disappointing performance, helping College of St. Benilde get back on track, although he knows there is a lot of work to do to catch up with the semifinal contenders.
“After our loss to JRU binigyan kami ng coach ng break to reflect and mag-usap usap,” shared Grey. “Pagbalik namin ng training, nagtrabaho kami kaagad sa practice kasi lahat naman kami pare-pareho ang gustong mangyari.”
Grey’s 29-point performance in the Blazers’ 88-66 rout of the Stags was a huge improvement from his five-point game in a 49-67 loss to the JRU Heavy Bombers.
“Ginawa ko talagang motivation ’yung last game kasi sobrang gigil ako noon kaya ang sama ng game ko,” said Grey. “Kaya ginawa ko ang best ko today.”
Pons Saavedra also came up with a much better showing with 20 after an anemic 10-point game against JRU.
CSB coach Gabby Velasco commended his wards for their efforts to end their slide and score their second win in seven outings.
“It’s a fact that Grey is an impact player, he’s a scorer, he makes things happen when he’s inside the court and he has so much energy and we were about to use his strength today,” said Velasco.
“Pons is helping us on both ends of the floor, if he’s not scoring he’s there on the defense. Pons’ shooting helped us win,” he added
