Aldrech Ramos' only motivation against ROS was to win
With no prior connection to both Star and Rain or Shine aside from a brief stint with the then San Mig Cofee Mixers, winning was all in the mind of Ramos throughout the contest.

Lost in the Paul Lee and James Yap storylines of the Star-Rain or Shine matchup was Aldrech Ramos actually being the one serving as the last-minute hero for the Hotshots.

Acquired in the offseason via trade, Ramos nailed back-to-back treys inside the last two minutes that capped Star's 15-3 closing run for the win.

While he didn't have the same amount of emotion invested in this particular game compared to his teammates and James Yap on the other side, Ramos was perfectly fine in doing what he's supposed to do in front of an electrice crowd.

"Medyo matagal na din akong di naglaro na ganun karaming crowd. Happy ako na naka-contribute ako sa game na ito," Ramos said who ended up with 12 points, six rebounds, and two assists.

With no prior connection to both Star and Rain or Shine aside from a brief stint with the then San Mig Cofee Mixers, winning was all in the mind of Ramos throughout the contest.

"Every game naman kailangan namin eh kasi winning streak kami. Continue lang namin di ba. Yun yung motivation namin, manalo," he said.

After taking a third straight game, Ramos and the Hotshots now take their winning streak to Christmas Day in another big time matchup against rival Ginebra.

"Hopefully [continue winning streak] kasi may Manila Classico sa Christmas. Paghahandaan namin, one day break then balik na kami sa training," he said.
