Happy ending or not, CSB thankful for NCAA 94 campaign

If the Blazers' inquiry will be granted, all of the Altas' 11 wins will be nixed, and next-in-line Benilde will be granted a spot in the playoffs as the fourth seed.
Fifth place or Final Four, whatever the outcome may be for the CSB Blazers, the team will wholeheartedly accept it, says coach TY Tang.
Currently with a 9-8 standing in the NCAA Season 94 eliminations and eliminated from post-season contention, things may turn about face if the league's Management Committee decides in favor of CSB's letter on inquiry regarding the eligibility of some Perpetual Altas players.
If granted, all of the Altas' 11 wins thus far will be nixed, and next-in-line Benilde will be granted a spot in the playoffs as the fourth seed.
"We'll just leave it up to them. If we get in the Final Four, thank you. If its not, still thank you," Tang said after their 84-68 win over last-place JRU.
The former floor general added that they respect the impending decision which will come out at any point of the week, as the coach notes that the Season 94 hosts may have violated some league rules.
"It might just look sourgraping on our part, but honestly, come what may for us."
But for the second-year mentor, come what may, the campaign for the boys from Taft have been a success, as they try to continue along the process of maturity.
"Every day is gaining experience for our team and we just have to continue growing. For me, what's gonna be significant is if we commit the same mistakes."
Talking about the game, where the lead swung back-and-forth between the two teams in their Tuesday afternoon tussle, Tang stressed that the team needs to have a happy ending to make history.
"...[T]his is the first non-losing season that we had. We're 9-8 so at least, there's more wins than losses. There's that build-up, there's that growth and hopefully we continue growing every single day."
