Hotshots try to end slump

With four games left in its elimination round schedule in the PBA Governors’ Cup, Star is a powerhouse side that has suddenly been taken out of top four talk.

And coach Chito Victolero knows that he and his Hotshots cannot get back into that conversation with just one fell swoop.

“All of our last four games are important, it’s actually a must-win for us starting (Friday),” Victolero said as the Hotshots tangle with back-to-the-wall GlobalPort to try and snap a three-game losing streak that will put the Hotshots back in contention for a twice-to-beat privilege.

“But we need to take it one game at a time,” he said as Star takes to the Smart Araneta Coliseum floor opposite the Batang Pier in the 7 p.m. contest, where a grieving Stanley Pringle makes his return from a two-game absence to help GlobalPort in its own bid to stay alive for a playoff berth.
Pringle went to the US to attend to his ailing father.

Victolero has fingered the very reason why his Hotshots, after four straight wins to open up the season-ending conference, have slipped.
