Javee Mocon and San Beda want nothing more than to get back at LPU
Ever since losing to the Lyceum Pirates last August 21, Javee Mocon and the San Beda Red Lions have been a team on a mission.
The mission? To get back at them.
"Babawi kami sa LPU," the graduating San Beda forward once declared on live TV.
And in their final game before their final elimination round showdown with the Pirates, the 23-year-old made sure to send one last statement to Lyceum, tallying 24 points and 11 rebounds during San Beda's 90-52 drubbing of the Arellano Chiefs last Thursday.
For this, Mocon was hailed as the Chooks-to-Go/Collegiate Sports Press Corps NCAA Player of the Week.
But the San Beda lifer is hoping that it's not just him who is hyped for the upcoming contest.
"Sana springboard sa amin ito going into the Lyceum game, especially for our bench players. Kailangan namin silang lahat for that game," he hopes.
Though having clinched a twice-to-beat advantage in the NCAA Season 94 Seniors Basketball Final Four, decorated Red Lions head coach Boyet Fernandez is still going all out to close out their elimination round campaign.
"We will treat our final two games as playoff games. We will be ready," he said.
Mocon bested fellow Red Lion Robert Bolick, Letran's duo of Bong Quinto and JP Calvo, and Lyceum's CJ Perez for the weekly honor given by print and online writers covering the Grand Old League.
