It’s a nice buffer for us coming to our next game. Hopefully, we can have a good turnaround and our boys work hard,” said coach Jeff Napa in Filipino.What adds to Napa’s glee is him seeing that some of his bench players are stepping up and helping the cause for Letran, something he hopes the team could sustain, especially with a home game slated on Thursday against St. Benilde.“I hope they can still improve. We’re a very young team and it’s a given that all of us are adjusting. Hopefully, the adjustment and the learning will be faster so that it can favor us,” he said.Lervin Flores tallied a season-best 17 points, 11 rebounds, and four blocks in the losing effort for Arellano, while Salado was once again limited to 15 markers, four assists, and three boards.Their efforts, though, went for naught as the Chiefs lost their second straight game and fell down the standings at 2-3.ADVERTISEMENT Ai-Ai delas Alas on Jiro Manio: ‘Sana pinahalagahan niya ang naitulong ko’ Rey Nambatac.
