Rita had 18 points for the Lady Stags while Nikka Dalisay and Daurene Santos had 12 and 11 points, respectively.Gorayeb said his team may be considered weak, but they know thd stronger teams have the bigger tendency to crack under pressure.“All teams have that pride, that ego, but when you trip those two their confidence becomes anger and that’s the psychological part of the game,” said Gorayeb. “My players can play seven or eight sets, because we have that character.”ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson View commentslast_img read more
