MYLA Pablo delivered better numbers for Pocari Sweat, and is hoping to still improve as the V-League Reinforced Conference enters the crucial stages.

Pablo scored 11 points from 10 kills and a block on Saturday as the Lady Warriors beat Bali Pure in four sets.

She entered the match averaging 8.4 points, admitting she had a hard time adjusting to Fil-American setter Iris Tolenada, but said she hopes to do better and help American imports Bre Mackie and Andrea Kacsits.

“Minsan after training, kinakausap ko siya Iris set-an mo naman ako, nag-o-overload kami ng setting,” said Pablo.

“Syempre hindi naman pwedeng aasa kami sa imports namin ’di ba?” said Pablo. “So kailangan ko din i-double time ang sarili ko, ‘di pwedeng import lang ang gagawa, kailangan gumawa rin kami ni Michele (Gumabao).”

Gumabao scored nine against Bali Pure.

“‘Yun ang mindset ko na, hindi, babawi ako kailangan kong tulungan ang import namin kasi ‘yung gitna nga namin hindi masyado nabibigyan ng bola, puro kay Mackie ‘di ba?” she added.

“Noong una talaga game namin ng BoC (Bureau of Customs) doon ako medyo nag-adjust na kasi noong game namin ng Air Force naga-adjust pa ako kay Iris kasi sobrang bilis ng bola niya, minsan mababa, minsan mataas so nag-aadjust talaga ako,” she revealed.

“Pero kung anong ibigay sa akin na bola eh ‘di paluin ko,” she added. “Sabi nga nila kung gaano ka kagaling na player kailangan hindi ka namimili ng set.”
