The Lady Spikers got confident and it cost them dearly against FEU

The smiles from the DLSU Lady Spikers were quickly wiped out after the FEU Lady Tamaraws scored a stunning five-set win in the Final Four.
The De La Salle Lady Spikers felt the sting of their Final Four defeat to Far Eastern University Sunday.
While they are not eliminated, the girls from Taft lost a two-set lead to the red-hot Lady Tamaraws and more importantly, lost their hard-earned twice-to-beat advantage.
Obviously licking their wounds after a second five-set defeat in a week, the Lady Spikers spent over an hour inside their locker room before leaving the arena.
Head coach Ramil De Jesus was the first to emerge from the dugout and declined to be interviewed by the media.
But those who did grant the press some time to talk, the Lady Spikers only have one thing on their minds ahead of Wednesday's knockout game.
And that is to win.
"Syempre malungkot na natalo kami, pero pinag-usapan naman namin na coming out of this dugout kailangan heads up kami kasi babawi talaga kami," leading scorer Kim Dy said who finished with 20 points.
"Hindi kami masyadong nag-enjoy," Dy added. "Yun talaga eh, hindi na kami nag-enjoy nung third, fourth and fifth set. I think we were confident na we got the first two sets tapos yun, nataranta na kami."
Mika Reyes, who was seen shedding tears moments after the loss, added that it's a part of life.
"Nabigla lang. Carried away, I'm totally fine," Reyes said addressing her post-game tears.
"Kailangan mabawi talaga. Part ng paglalaro talaga yan, part ng life," she added.
