Jerome Garcia knows that in his two-year stay at the Emilio Aguinaldo College, he won’t be making it to the Final Four. But he’ll go down trying to rack up the wins.
“Wala na kaya nga sabi namin, you have to make the most of your last games,” said third-year Generals head coach Ariel Sison.
In the last two games of the Generals, the 25-year-old has been going all out. After tallying 10 points and 10 rebounds during EAC’s 69-67 stunner over the CSB Blazers last Friday, the San Marcelino gunner had 25 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal, and a block to lead the Generals past the Arellano University Chiefs, 78-70.
And Garcia wants to leave a mark once he leaves EAC.
“Ako from the start of the season, ang goal ko sa team ko is makakuha ng mas maraming panalo,” shared Garcia as EAC picked up seven wins last season. “Puro talo yung start namin, ‘di pa rin ako sumuko. Talagang gagawin ko ang lahat para makakuha kami ng panalo.
“Thankful lang kami kasi nakasungkit pa kami ng mga panalo.”
Now racking up their second straight win, Garcia wants more. And he is hoping to finish their last three games all on a winning note.
“Siguro sobrang taas kasi nakakuha kami ng dalawang panalo. Every practice namin, talagang one-hundred percent kami,” he said. “Gusto pa namin makakuha ng panalo.
“Sigurado hindi ako papayag matalo sa last three games ko. Sigurado din ako na ganyan kataas yung kumpyansa ko, kukunin namin yung tatlong panalo.”
