All about effort, defense for Hotshots’ dela Rosa

Defense has always been the main calling card of Magnolia.

For Rome dela Rosa, it was also his ticket to see more hardcourt action, something he took full advantage of in the Hotshots’ duel against NLEX on Sunday.

“It’s just effort. Coach put me in there to play defense in the second half,” he said after posting a new career-high with 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in the 105-94 victory.

“They trusted me to do my job and I’m glad everything went well. The points came along. Defense first and offense will come eventually.”

More importantly, dela Rosa played his earnest to keep Road Warriors super rookie Kiefer Ravena in check for the majority of the fourth period.
