COACH Kungfu Reyes criticized the University of Sto. Tomas Tigresses for lack of effort, saying the Adamson Lady Falcons were more aggressive in their match on Sunday.

The Tigresses got back on the winning track with a four-set win over the Lady Falcons, but Reyes noted they need to do better in the coming matches in the UAAP women's volleyball tournament. 

Reyes did not mention names or specific plays, but said as a team the Tigresses were complacent in facing the cellar-dwellers.

"Nananalo kami pero di pa rin ganun kaganda nilalaro namin," said Reyes.

"Oo, complacent, makikita naman e kahit hindi namin sabihin. Wala namang easy win, kailangan trabahuhin," he said.

"Yung Adamson very agressive, they kept on trying sa opensa. Sabi ko nga sa mga players ko kung sino magtatrbaho yun ang mananalo. Kaya nanalo ang Adamson nung third set kasi they tried hard para makuha set."

Reyes, who said the loss to league-leading Ateneo was a wake-up call, said the same of the win over Adamson.

"Isa lang naman gusto namin ipakita sa mga players, na kapag hindi ka magtrabaho tatalunin ka ng mga kalaban mo," he said.

"Hopefully wake-up call ito sa amin."
