Alinsunurin reminds Choco Mucho to stay patient with process

Dante Alinsunurin reminded the Choco Mucho Flying Titans that they are just at the beginning of a long transition process following their straight-set loss to Petro Gazz last Thursday.

Coming off a debut win over Akari, the Flying Titans suffered a 25-18, 25-20, 25-21 sweep at the hands of former head coach Oliver Almadro and the Angels in the 2023 Premier Volleyball League All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil EcoOil Centre.

“Syempre una malungkot sa pagkatalo pero nung nagsalita naman kami, yung management medyo gumanda na ulit yung ano. Kasi alam namin na hindi naman kami nagmamadali, pinaliwanag ko sa kanila na nagsisimula pa lang tayo,” said Alinsunurin, who took the post left by Almadro late last year.

“Although matagal na sila sa liga na ‘to, pero yun nga, new coach at ibang system yung ginagawa namin. Sabi ko nga, ‘di tayo nagmamadali. Kung ano ‘man yung nagiging problema natin every game dapat masolusyunan natin,” he added.

Alinsunurin said that the team’s performance on the service line and the defensive end proved to be the difference maker in the loss. Choco Mucho had 58 digs, 20 receptions, as well as two aces in the three sets of action.

The NU head coach also stressed that the team must be consistent in what they are doing inside the court to prevent such things from happening again.PVL-2023-Choco-Mucho-vs.-Petrogazz-Oliver-Almadro-2578 Alinsunurin reminds Choco Mucho to stay patient with process News PVL Volleyball  - philippine sports news

“Yung problema namin sa loob kanina is yung service receive namin. Medyo off talaga yung ano namin, medyo mababa yung porsyento namin. Ngayon yung gusto naming mangyari sa court hindi namin magawa kasi sa sobrang baba ng porsyento sa serve namin at sa receive namin,” said Alinsunurin.

“Siguro talagang ano, kailangan pa namin talaga na maging consistent sa ginagawa. Sabi ko nga, nagsisimula pa lang kami. Kung ano ‘man yung nagiging sitwasyon namin ngayon, kailangan namin talagang tanggapin at pag-aralan kung ano yung dapat naming gawin sa susunod,” he added.

Kat Tolentino was the lone double-digit scorer for the Flying Titans with 14 points while Des Cheng followed with nine markers along with 11 excellent digs.

“Ang sabi ko nga sa kanila, ‘wag lang sila ma-pressure sa sitwasyon dahil ang gusto lang namin talaga is maglaro and mag-improve pa yung team.
