Perasol preaches process in UP rebuild
Bo Perasol is trusting the Process in hopes of taking UP to greater heights.

Talking to new UP head coach Bo Perasol awfully sounds like he's in charge of the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers.

That's because if he's going to truly fix the Fighting Maroons' basketball program, Perasol and UP will have to undergo a long and probably difficult process.

And Perasol has embraced it, despite losing his Diliman coaching debut at the Filoil tournament last week, the former PBA and Ateneo coach remains upbeat.

He's there to change the culture first and foremost after all, and that does not happen after two practices.

"This is going to be a process," Perasol said. "That's understandable, it's not going to change in a month. It's going to take a lot of time para mapalitan yung isip nila."

And while the Maroons found some success in UAAP Season 78 to the delight of the UP community, continuity is key for State U.

And stringing together winning seasons in the future is never an easy task, getting complacent and falling back to old habits is not the way to go.

And old habits lead to 0-14 records.

"In the end kailangan, we need to understand the pains of the process," Perasol added. "Kailangan alam nila na it's not going to be easy."
