MANILA, Philippines —It hasn’t been a smooth transition for Ivy Lacsina and the Nxled setters in the PVL All-Filipino Conference.

Lacsina, the Chameleons’ biggest recruit in the off-season, admitted as much. She even revealed how she constantly bickered with teammates Kamille Cal and Maji Mangulabnan before the team ended its winless start on Tuesday.

“Hindi naman nawala ‘yung tiwala ko eh sa mga setters po namin. Siguro ‘yung connection lang kasi sobrang sobrang dami naming pinagdaanan ni Cal, (Mangulabnan) para lang mag-connect talaga kami,” said Lacsina after the breakthrough 25-21, 25-18, 25-15 win over the Galeries.

“Actually, nag-away na din po kami. Sobrang daming times na nag-away kami.”

But the tension with her teammates has pushed Lacsina to work harder to adjust and fit better with the Chameleons as she poured 17 points in ending the three-game skid.

“Hindi kasi pwedeng sila lang mag-aadjust sa akin. So itong buong week na ‘to, talagang sinabi ko “hindi, dapat ako din mag-aadjust. Ako na mag-aadjust,” she said.

“Better na ngayon pero hindi pa po siya hundred percent. So siyempre hindi naman po kami pwede tumigil, na ito na lang po eh. Kasi madami pa po kaming makakalaban and malalakas din po.”

Lacsina, who had a right knee sprain before the PVL season, said she’s getting closer to 100 percent recovery, hoping to build from their first win ahead of their duel against sister team Akari on Saturday at Sta. Rosa Sports Complex in Laguna.

And she’s grateful for her coach Taka Minowa for allowing her to play her game amid the minor injury.

“Kahit si Coach Taka nagagalit na po sa akin kapag pinipilit ko po. Pero siyempre lahat naman ‘to hindi ko po siya basta-basta magagawa kung ako lang pong mag-isa,” Lacsina said. “Kaya kailangan ko din po ‘yung team ko and nagtutulungan po kami para makapag-adjust sa game at maging better po every game.”
