OLA Adeogun doesn’t mind if he continues to get the few touches he had in Game Two when San Beda goes for a fourth straight title in the men’s basketball tournament of the NCAA in the deciding game against Letran on Saturday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
The Red Lions star slotman only had two attempts, but still came away with 10 points, 13 boards, and two blocks in Game Two last Thursday when the defending champions lost, 74-79, extendng the best-of-three series to a sudden death.
“I’m not complaining. I just have to believe in my team and just go with it and try to adjust,” the 22-year-old Nigerian told Spin.ph after Friday's practice. “I wouldn’t be satisfied if I had more touches and we don’t win anyway.”
Lions coach Boyet Fernandez admitted after the loss that they have to locate Adeogun, who assured that if and when the opportunity arises, he can be counted upon on offense.
“I don’t look to score, but if I’ll have more touches, I’ll take it. I always do,” said Adeogun, who had 16 points and 11 rebounds in the series opener.
Adeogun, though, said he will concentrate more on containing Letran counterpart and league MVP Raymond Almazan, who registered 12 points and eight caroms in Game Two.
“I will just focus on defense and more on the rebounding tomorrow, ” Adeogun said.
