Tangan ang 12-0 record, hindi pinagtutuunan ng pansin ni Ateneo head coach Tab Baldwin na mawalis ang two-round eliminations sa UAAP Season 82 men’s basketball tournament.
“No. For any team in this position things like undefeated seasons, sweeps, they happen because you take it one step at at time not because you make some grand statement about how good you are in front of a microphone,” paliwanag ni Baldwin.
Tuloy pa rin ang pamiminsala ng Blue Eagles, pinisak ang UE Red Warriors nitong Linggo, 84-80.
“Sport is about performance, not about bragging about performance. So we’re very much focused on what our next performance is gonna be,” dagdag ng coach.
“Hopefully when we step up against NU, we’ll be prepared for that game and they will be center of our attention and we’ll take care of business.” (Janiel Abby Toralba)
