MANILA, Philippines— Even though College of St. Benilde has started the NCAA Season 98 with three straight wins, the team is trying to keep their expectations realistic.
Despite notching yet another excellent victory on Tuesday, Blazers head coach Charles Tiu stated that his squad has a long way to go before reaching their full potential.
“Considering that we’ve only played three games so far, we still have a long way to go. “We still haven’t faced Letran, San Beda, and Mapua, those three teams are constant Final Four contenders so there is still a long way to go for us,” Tiu stated after easily dispatching Perpetual Help with a score of 81-64.
Tiu stated that the Blazers had an increased level of desire for their game against the Altas because the Altas were the team that eliminated the Blazers from playoff contention the previous year.
“It’s in the back of our minds because this team eliminated us the previous season, so we kind of wanted to get back at them,” said the players.
Will Gozum, who participated in the Mythical Team during the previous season, propelled St. Benilde with a double-double consisting of 16 points, 12 rebounds, and two blocks in addition to his other impressive statistics.
Gozum and freshman Migs Oczon, who scored 25 points in the Blazers’ 100-94 victory over San Sebastian on Sunday, have been leading the charge for the Blazers in their season, which has seen them sit atop the standings as the only unbeaten team remaining.
Among the favorites coming into the season, CSB has already blown away the competition, including the defending champion Letran, San Beda, and Mapua, all of which have as many wins as the Blazers have accumulated as a team.
