It was just embarrassing just to see everybody not playing hard.”“I think this is a slap in everybody’s face that we got to better in practice and in the game and just to be into it more.” In the five years that Leo Austria coached the team, the Beermen went 2-4 in their corresponding conference openers after winning the championship in the previous one.The Beermen had an average losing margin of eight points in the first three losses following a title, but the 33-point loss to the Batang Pier blew that stat line out of the water.Rhodes, who finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds, said even though they lost in one horrendous way that there’s no need for them to panic.“It’s just our first game, I don’t make excuses but they [the Batang Pier] they already played like four games and we didn’t have our legs, so there’s no need to panic,” said Rhodes.“We have to do better than what we did. We got to have more pride, we’re the San Miguel Beermen so we got to be better than this.”ADVERTISEMENT Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
