“The good thing about our loss to Sta. Lucia is that we were able to identify our flaws and weaknesses,” said Delos Santos, who steered Petron to the All-Filipino Conference title last year.
“That’s why I’m pretty confident as we advance to the quarterfinals. I know the girls are working hard to address our lapses and improve their game because everything will be tough from here. We have to be ready.”
“Her absence was a major blow for Cignal,” said Generika-Ayala head coach Sherwin Meneses shortly after closing their classification round campaign with a 3-7 win-loss card.
“Sonja is legitimate scorer and their top option on offense. Her absence limited their offensive options and gave us good opportunities defensively.”
“Her main goal is to give us a victory,” said Dulay, adding that he wasn’t surprised with Silva’s explosion since she’s been saying that she’s willing to score 50 points if that’s what it takes to give the Giga Hitters their first win.
“She’s very focused in training and actual games so I’m not discounting the possibility that she can either match or surpass that impressive performance in our next few matches.”
