Munsayac says EAC has had enough of just competing

WINNING IS EVERYTHING. EAC will no longer be satisfied with moral victories.
Francis Munsayac found an opening for a jumper at the elbow that granted Emilio Aguinaldo College a one-point lead with 11 ticks on the clock on Thursday at the San Juan Arena.
Just seconds after, however, Teytey Teodoro made good on his own jumper over Munsayac’s outstretched arms to come through for Jose Rizal University.
Munsayac’s last heave only grazed the front of the rim to cement the Generals’ fourth loss in a row. This, coming less than a week after his turnover and missed three also allowed Mapua Institute of Technology to pull off a great escape on them.
After another what-could-have been, all the EAC team captain could do was rest easy that he already did all he could. As he put it, “Sobrang sayang kasi yun na yung redemption ko sa miscues ko last game. Pero kudos to Teytey kasi sobrang ganda ng tira niya.”
He then continued, “Sa akin, ‘di rin ako nalungkot kasi nag-challenge ako at sabi rin ni coach, that was a good challenge. At least, ngayon, ‘di sobrang hirap ng pagkatalo.”
Competing – and even winning one – in all but one of their five games, there is no doubt that the Generals are not the same team they were from a season ago when they finished dead last. “Sobrang nakakahinayang. Lumalaban talaga kami kahit anong mangyari,” Munsayac expressed.
Still, the EAC team captain said he and his teammates are no longer happy with just competing. As he put it, “Actually, sabi ni coach na (getting) compliments is not enough. Kailangan, win.”
He then continued, “Good thing na malakas o mahina, lumalaban kami, pero yun nga, (getting) compliments is not enough.”
