Tamaraws hope to regain confidence ahead of Final 4
Losing its last three games, Far Eastern University looked far from the contender it was for most of the season.
But for the Tamaraws would rather set aside the frustrations and keeping their heads in the game with the Final 4 up ahead.
“Tulad ng sabi ni coach, 38 minutes kami lamang pero last two minutes na lang kami nagkamali. Kulang sa execution talaga,” said Raymar Jose following the FEU’s 73-67 loss to La Salle on Saturday.
In control for majority of the game, the Tamaraws allowed the Green Archers to fight back and uncork a 13-2 run to finish the game. What hurt them the most was their costly turnovers in the last two minutes that sealed their doom.
La Salle finished the eliminations on top at 13-1, while FEU drops to 8-5, tied with Adamson and a game behind second-place Ateneo (9-4).
“Sabi ni coach, heads-up pa rin kami kasi kaya naman namin,” Jose said. “Wag kaming mag-doubt dahil nandoon pa rin kami sa game.”
FEU wraps up its second round schedule against University of the East on Wednesday, something which Jose said will be crucial in building the team’s confidence going to the playoffs.
“Yung laro namin sa Wednesday, doon na lang kami kukuha ng kumpyansa ulit. At least, sa Final Four, madadala namin yun. Yung effort naman, alam namin na kailangan na lang naming dagdagan,” he said.
