Arwind Santos stamps his class on rebounding, defense
The former Most Valuable Player, who finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds, had two crucial offensive boards in the late minutes that denied Ginebra more chances to complete its comeback from 10 points down.
To cap off his impressive night, Santos stood his ground in the last play and altered LA Tenorio’s game-tying shot.
Santos said effort in those departments is crucial in winning a basketball game.
“Ang sabi ko nga, bakit mo pahihirapan ang basketball? Ang basketball maraming sangkap. Mayroon dyang puntos, rebounds, depensa, agaw, blocks. Anytime na hindi pumapasok tira ko sa labas nag-focus ako sa depensa,” Santos told InterAksyon.com.
“Mabuti naman naging maganda resulta. In the end, yun ang nagpanalo.”
