Eagerness to bounce back backfires on Rain or Shine

Losing a heavyweight bout to San Miguel exactly a week ago, Rain or Shine was obviously pumped to bounce back. The Elasto Painters looked like they had the perfect opportunity to do so as they were matched up with Meralco, a team coming in with six straight defeats Friday. However, their eagerness backfired as the Bolts scored an 82-72 upset, dropping ROS to a 5-4 record in the Philippine Cup. Now, instead of solo second, the Elasto Painters figure in a tie with at least two teams in the standings. 'Medyo nag-lack kami sa pag-follow sa sistema ni coach Caloy. Medyo gigil din kami sa talo namin sa San Miguel. Sobrang gusto namin mag-bounce back, bumaligtad,' Jerico Cruz said who was one of ROS' key pieces that struggled all game. 'Like I said after our loss to San Miguel, ang worry ko is who we will come out. And we came out flat. Give credit to Meralco. They played a great game and they play different when they’re complete. We just have to correct the wrong things we had tonight,' head coacj Caloy Garcia added. While they still have a fighting chance to make the top 2, Rain or Shine is more worried on actually staying in the playoff picture more than trying to get a twice-to-beat bonus in the quarterfinals. With teams piling up in the middle of the standings separated by only one game or so, winning out might be the only option right now for the Elasto Painters to avoid a sudden collapse. 'Ang crucial dito, hindi pa kami sure sa quarterfinals. Kapag natalo kami nang dalawang straight, baka malaglag pa,' James Yap, the only ROS player to actually play decent to finish with 17 points, said. 'As much as possible, we want to be in the Top 6. Yung Top 2, saka na ‘yan. If we have a chance, why not? Pero ngayon we’re just looking forward on winning another game first,' Garcia added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»

The curious case of Willy Wilson's curly hair

After a bout with amoebiasis and other sickness, Willy Wilson successfully returned to the Phoenix lineup Wednesday, providing the energy the Fuel Masters sorely missed in the middle of their Philippine Cup campaign. One thing the team surely didn't miss and would love to have gone immediately is Wilson's hair which went from a nice clean look to a curly. 'Willy Wilson gives us a lot of energy, it's his first game back. I just hope he cuts his hair because I don't like his hair,' head coach Ariel Vanguardia said of his veteran forward who put up a cool 12 points, nine rebounds. two assists, and two steals in 30 minutes against NLEX. 'We've been teasing him about his hair but at least Willy Wilson is back,' Vanguardia added. The Fuel Masters hate Wilson's hair so much that they were willing to pay for his haircut. The 13-year-veteran insisted that he's keeping his hairstyle for now. 'Actually he [coach Ariel] had the team chip in 10 pesos each for a haircut. I kindly declined, I'm trying to see  what's going on with the hair, it's different. I'm turning 37 in a few days so I just wanted to do  a little something different,' Wilson said. Going away from the topic of his hair for a little bit, Wilson is elated to be back for Phoenix in time for the Fuel Masters' playoff push. Although still not 100 percent, the former De La Salle Green Archer insists that he's in a better shape now compared to a couple of weeks ago when he tried to push things that obviously backfired on him and his team. 'I just started hurting myself and I took some time off and now I'm just starting to feel a little bit better. Still not 100 percent but everyday that goes by I'm trying to get more and more back to being myself,' Wilson said. Now back to his hair, Willie says he'll cut it when the time is right. And the right time is when summer rolls around. ' I like it but you know, when summer time comes around, it's going to be too hot so I'm gonna have to cut it. I'm not used to having long hair for too long but I used to do this back in college, I go the whole UAAP season without getting a haircut and come PBL time I have long hair. Definitely before summer I'll be cutting it,' he said. br /> --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8 .....»»
