Undefeated FEU still groping for chemistry, says coach
Far Eastern University head coach George Pascua has been seeing a steady improvement as far as the Lady Tamaraws’ chemistry is concerned.
One of Pascua’s concerns heading into the Premier Volleyball League Collegiate Conference is the jelling of his players, but none of his worries seem to exist on Saturday when FEU eased its way to its third consecutive win.
“Hopefully, little by little, we’ll have chemistry before the end of the tournament,” Pascua said in Filipino after guiding his team to a 25-15, 25-22, 25-18 victory over San Sebastian.
“If our chemistry was at 50 percent in our first game, 60 percent in our second game, today it’s 70 percent.”
Banking on teamwork, the Lady Tamaraws had five players with at least five points led by Heather Guino-o’s game-high nine points.
Celine Domingo and Jeanette Villareal had eight points each while Jerrili Malabanan and Kyle Negrito chipped in six and five points, respectively.
FEU, the UAAP finalist in Season 80 after losing to three-peat champion De La Salle, will be tested on Sunday when it faces fellow UAAP team Adamson on Sunday.
“It would be like a pre-tournament game for us against them and we need to give everything we got.”
