Roces rues lack of teamwork as BanKo Perlas remains winless
BanKo Perlas skipper Sue Roces said Wednesday it’s her team’s lack of teamwork that’s been the major factor in their skid at the start of the Premier Volleyball League Open Conference.
The Perlas Spikers started the tournament 0-2 and their latest defeat was at the hands of Pocari Sweat in four sets, 25-21, 22-25, 25-19, 27-25, at Filoil Flying V Centre.
“We haven’t been complete since the start of the conference,” said Roces who had 12 points in the loss. “We really lack the players so we really can’t rotate our pieces, and we still lack the teamwork.”
“Just a little more, but we still need to be complete as a team.”
BanKo started its campaign in the Open Conference without Kathy Bersola, Nicole Tiamzon, who were on vacation after graduating from University of the Philippines, and Rysabelle Devandero.
Roces said they’re able to practice but some players have day jobs and they couldn’t organize off-court activities where the players can bond outside of volleyball.
“We’re able to practice every day but some of us are working, some are only able to join us at night,” said Roces. “We don’t have any time to bond so I guess that’s another thing we have to work out.”
