JRU head coach Louie Gonzalez said he didn’t expect this kind of win from his team especially with the Heavy Bombers going into a transition period.

“I never thought that we could pull this kind of win because if you noticed we’re still on the process,” said Gonzalez, who replaced Vergel Meneses back in late April, in Filipino.

“It’s the lifestyle we want to check because we want to teach the players how to become elite athletes.”

Chester Carlos led the Generals with 17 points while JC Luciano finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds, and six assists.
