FEU continue its downward spiral
FEU just suffered their biggest setback this Season 81.
After leading the standings with 5-2 win-loss slate, the Tamaraws slipped to 5-5 after entering the second round with a three-game skid.
Recently, they tasted defeat against UP on Wednesday, 95-82.
“10 days ago, 5-2 kami. But you know a lot of things happenned, it’s just unfortunate that nagsabay-sabay sila — Prince Orizu’s injury and Arvin Tolentino’s two-game suspension,” said FEU head coach Olsen Racela.
First, Tolentino had to serve his two-game suspension after being called for a disqualifying foul last October 14 against UST.
Last Saturday, Orizu sustained a leg injury during their game against Ateneo.
Despite these unfortunate circumstances, Racela gave credit to his players for giving their all-out effort, especially against UP.
“I just commended their effort today. Alam nilang we’re two players down and mahirap maglaro ng ganun, but they still followed the game plan and they also gave their best,” he explained.
FEU will continue to fight on October 27 against La Salle, as they will try to end their struggle in hopes of keeping their Final Four bid alive.
“Talagang lumaban sila, pero susubukan ulit sa Sabado kasi it’s a very crucial game,” Racela ended.
