Nationals whip Cocolife
The Philippine Team clobbered Cocolife, 25-13, 25-17, 25-11, Saturday in their debut in the Philippine Superliga Invitational Conference at FilOil Flying V Centre.
National coach Shaq delos Santos said they are hoping to improve their game as they face the super teams in the league, which has accommodated them as a guest squad.
The Nationals take on league-leader Cignal HD on Tuesday.
Sisters Jaja Santiago and Dindin Manabat led the Philippines with 17 and 12 points, respectively.
Cocolife’s star libero Denden Lazaro suited up for the Philippines instead of the Asset Managers despite the ruling that players should play for their mother clubs.
Dawn Macandili couldn’t suit up for the PH squad due to her academic duties at La Salle.
