Now more than ever, Chito Victolero will need his stingy defense to work as Magnolia prepares to challenge the mighty San Miguel Beermen for the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup title.
Chito Victolero has preached defense ever since he took over for the Hotshots last season.
Now more than ever, Victolero will need his stingy defense to work as Magnolia prepares to challenge the mighty San Miguel Beermen for the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup title.
"We've been consistent with out goals nun start pa lang ng conference, which is to limit our opponents under 90 points," he said.
"Nagawa naman namin yun. And much better pa nga siguro," Victolero added.
Against the Beermen, who boast perhaps the best collection of offensive weapons in the league, the Hotshots have no choice but the stop San Miguel from scoring.
Because it might be too hard to actually try to compete with the Beermen in a shootout.
"That's our goal," Victolero said.
"It's a battle of defense and offense eh. I know that and coach Leo [Austria] knows that," he added.
