With momentum on its side, can F2 Logistics repeat last season’s success against Petron?
Momentum, history and mental toughness will be on the side of F2 Logistics as it eyes a second straight Chooks To Go-Philippine Superliga Grand Prix title against Petron on Saturday at Araneta Coliseum.
The Cargo Movers, who won the last two games of the best-of-three final series last season to grab the Grand Prix title from the Blaze Spikers, are trying to repeat that feat in the 6 p.m. knockout match.
“These players are used to the finals,” F2 Logistics coach Arnold Laniog said in Filipino. “They are champions back in college (La Salle) and here in the commercial league, they are champions also.”
Laniog was taking over this conference from La Salle champion coach Ramil de Jesus.
“It’s no longer about skills,” Laniog said. “It’s about the championship mindset and mental toughness, that would be the key in Game 3.”
The Cargo Movers will be boosted by reports that La Salle star Majoy Baron will suit up in place of injured Fritz Gallenero. Baron is coming from a triumphant UAAP campaign, where the Lady Spikers nailed a third straight crown.
