“Actually, I’m happy again more than thankful to the players for performing. We just have to continue scouting the other teams,” said Chery Tiggo head coach Aaron Velez. “We need to invest on our physical conditioning and mental preparation.”
Jovelyn Gonzaga carried the cudgels of Black Mamba-Army with 11 points and 12 digs as they bombed out of contention with 2-5 record.
