    University of Santo Tomas' season is taking on a familiar and alarming pattern, but Tigresses coach Kungfu Reyes refuses to panic.

    Tagged as one of the pre-tournament favorites with a stacked lineup, the Tigresses are off to a 1-3 (win-loss) start to their UAAP Season 79 women's volleyball campaign after 25-22, 25-22, 29-31, 25-19 loss to in-form University of the Philippines.

    After a 0-2 start, UST found a reprieve after getting its first win at the expense of winless University of the East, only to go back to its old ways in a loss to the Lady Maroons.

    But a defiant Reyes is not pressing the panic button.

    “Actually hindi (kami nagpa-panic) eh, kasi kayang kaya ipanalo (ang next games),” Reyes said. “Kasi you just look at the standings, sino ba ‘yung mga tumalo (sa amin?)

    "Kaya lang ‘di kami pwede mag-(relax) lang, kailangan magtrabaho,” he added.

    Reyes is looking to get UST back on the winning track against winless Adamson on Saturday in time for crucial matches against National University (3-1) on March 1 and Far Eastern University (3-1) on March 4.

    The outspoken mentor reminded his wards not to give up despite the early struggles.

    “Unti-untiin na lang namin (ang next games) very competitive ang taon nag-iimprove lahat, gumagaling,” he said. “Good na nag-improve kami pero ang hinahanap namin doon sa panalo, kailangan namin sumabay para manalo."
