Game Day at Caloocan Sports Complex: Cignal vs Petron; F2 Logistics vs Generika-Ayala; Marinerang Pilipina vs PLDT

But Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos stressed that their misfortune is already a thing of the past and they are now focussed on redeeming themselves by winning the title.

“What happened in the past conference no longer matters to us. What’s important at this point is what lies ahead of us,” said Delos Santos, who will call the shots when the national squad competes in the 30th Southeast Asian Games.

Cignal coach Edgar Barroga shares the same sentiment, guaranteeing that this battle between two undefeated teams would boil down into a war of attrition.

“I always remind my players to learn a thing or two in our past games,” he said. “But I still always remind them that the present is more important.”

Cignal will shoot for an elimination round sweep when it battles Petron tomorrow at the Caloocan Sports Complex.

“We can’t afford to relax knowing that we are still unbeaten,” said Paat who will play a crucial role when the Nationals compete in the 30th Southeast Asian Games this December.

“We need to learn how to avoid being complacent in the last stretch of this conference. We also have to be consistent every time.”
