Pasaol exploded for 22 points in a losing effort as the Red Warriors dropped their fifth straight game at the hands of the Ateneo Blue Eagles.
But despite the loss, the Davao native’s emergence proved to be a positive side for the still winless Red Warriors as main man Bonbon Batiller also continues to struggle.
“Siguro binigyan lang talaga kami ng kumpiyansa ni coach na maglaro kami ng best namin,” Pasaol said.
Pasaol admitted the UAAP culture got into his game after a poor showing in UE’s first four games.
“Naga-adjust nung first four games namin siguro sa crowd, sa playing court na nilalaruan namin,” explained Pasaol.
He is confident that his good performance will continue as the Red Warriors try to secure the elusive first win on Wednesday against powerhouse De La Salle University.
“Para sa akin dere-deretso na. Consistency lang. Ngayon komportable na ko, ngayon siguro ito na,” Pasaol said. – By John Chester Fajardo
