The Talk ‘N Text KaTropa is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Columbian Dyip at 6:45 P.M. on October 5, 2019 live from the Ynares Center, City of Antipolo, Rizal.
The KaTropa wanted to solidify their hold of the number one ranking in the standings while the Dyip will continue to prove that they’re the real deal this conference when the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup resumes this evening in the City of Antipolo.
TNT explodes from the three-point land during their game versus the Phoenix Pulse Fuel Masters.
The squad of head coach Bong Ravena made 18 triples led by Troy Rosario who swished six treys and had a total of 32 points.
Though they’re impressive on their offense yet coach Ravena wanted his troops also to put work on defense if they wanted to knock down other league’s heavyweights.
“We gave away 118 points, wala kaming tataluning malakas na team kapag ganyan,” said Ravena. “We have to improve. We can’t play the same way. We have to be consistent on our defensive effort.”
Meanwhile, team Columbian improvement seems to look upward. They’re currently at 2-1 after beating Alaska Aces and NorthPort Batang Pier.
Tonight, it was a bigger challenge for head coach Johnedel Cardel and his wards as they go up against league-leading KaTropa.
During their match against the Batang Pier, coach Cardel emphasized to his team the purpose of their team practice which needed to be evident in their official games in order for them to collect more wins.
“At halftime, I was telling them what happened to what we’ve practiced? Are you fooling me? If you wanted to win, you had to change how you’re playing in the second half, swing the ball more, give the ball to post, find the open man. And they responded,” said Cardel.
