Racela proud of Tolentino’s improved defensive effort

For the past three games, Far Eastern University head coach Olsen Racela has constantly pushed Arvin Tolentino to show more effort in the defensive end.

With a reward of more minutes, the power forward showed he could do the dirty work and bring the intensity off the ball.

“I always tell him that I want to see the intangibles, the more he plays defense, the more he gets rebounds, the more he boxes out, and gets rebounds the more minutes he’ll get,” said Racela Wednesday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

After playing just six minutes against University of the East, where he put up 11 points and three rebounds, Tolentino averaged 20 minutes a game in the next three matches.

And with those minutes came averages of 16.33 points and 6.67 rebounds.
