CEU Scorpions ‘overachieved’ despite loss to Cignal in finals

For Centro Escolar University coach Yong Garcia, there’s no shame in losing to Cignal HD in the 2017 PBA D-League Foundation Cup Finals.

“I think we overachieved,” he said, after the Hawkeyes dealt the Scorpions a 79-69 Game 2 defeat.

“I’m so proud of my players because they always gave their best and that’s the reason why we made it in this stage.”

With the decks stacked against them, CEU shocked top-seed Flying V in the semifinals to arrange the date against Cignal behind the heroics of Rod Ebondo and the troika of guards in JK Casiño, Aaron Jeruta, and Orlan Wamar.
