We still have to be in control, we still have to be on top of our minds and think of the things we did when we won our first game, last conference, the things we did when we got to the semifinals.” NLEX’ 22-point loss against the Batang Pier was its worst this conference, eclipsing the 123-103 setback it suffered at the hands of Columbian in its opening game.Ravena said the Road Warriors have been trying to do too much instead of just letting the game come to them.“I guess we’re trying too hard, we’re not having fun,” said Ravena. “We want to do so much and end up staying away from our system.”ADVERTISEMENT Getting cut, playing in ABL motivated Javelona to get PBA call-up MOST READ Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
