Jayvee Casio of Alaska. AKTV file photo/Paul Ryan TanJVee Casio was Mr. Clutch during Alaska’s come-from-behind win over Talk ‘N Text, finishing with 25 points, including 12 points in the last three minutes, in helping the Aces complete a rally to turn back the Tropang Texters.

But Casio is insistent that he wasn’t the only reason for the victory, citing the effort of his teammates.

“They were setting me up,” said Casio. “They gave me open looks and they made things easier for me. Mahirap lusutan yung mga kagaya nina Jimmy [Alapag] and Jayson [Castro]. Overall, it was a total team effort.”

While Casio hopes that his fine performances continue, he hopes his team doesn’t have to rely on him catching fire to come from behind in too many games.

“I hope this won’t be the last where I can have games such as this one,” Casio told InterAKTV. “But I hope we don’t need to come from a big deficit in completing a win ang hirap rin kasi.”
