Games at Imus Sports Center: Marinerang Pilipina vs Petron; Foton vs Generika-Ayala

Tornadoes coach Aaron Velez said Kasilag stepped up after they have decided that they no longer want to heavily rely on the Santiago sisters for offensive production.

“I don’t want to bank too much on the Santiago sisters. This is a team sport so I told them that we’re not build a star player here, we want to make a star team,” Velez said.

“This is win is a huge help for us, especially the morale of the team, as the league just started,” said Generika-Ayala head coach Sherwin Meneses, who chalked up his first win in this prestigious women’s club tourney bankrolled by SOGO, Eurotel, PCSO, Cocolife, UCPB Gen, Mueller, Senoh, Asics, Bizooku and One Sport.

“I’m glad that we managed to recover from our first game loss it was an ugly defeat for us. I hope that we could sustain this good morale for our next matches.”

Foton head coach Aaron Velez will also have the luxury of playing the Santiago sisters the whole tournament and he expects them to lead the way, bringing their fruitful experience from the V.Premier League of Japan.

“We’ll take it one step at a time this time,” said Velez.

“We learned our lessons from the Grand Prix. We will polish things this time and expect a more energize and hard-fighting Foton.”
