During the first seven games of the Letran Knights, Larry Muyang has not lived up to expectations.
The 6-foot-5 big man from Pampanga was just averaging 11.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game – way down from the 12.5 points and 8.9 rebounds he averaged from last season.
And so, during their game against the San Sebastian Golden Stags Tuesday, he made sure to step up. Muyang finished the game with 32 points and 18 rebounds.
His career outing went for naught, though, as Letran could not outlast San Sebastian, falling 101-102.
“Sa akin kasi kanina sa game, parang iniisip ko lang na gusto ko lang mag-bounce back. Kaya lahat ginawa ko na eh,” shared Muyang, who was part of the Go for Gold-San Juan Knights’ championship team during the MPBL Datu Cup.
“Kaya, wala ganun talaga.”
Turnovers proved to be the bane for the Knights. Averaging 18.9 errors per game in their first seven games, Letran had 28 in the game, with Muyang accounting for four of them.
“Siguro, more on turnovers kasi kami eh, ngayon 28 daw kami. Ang goal namin ngayon, bawasan yung turnover,” he lamented.
Letran have now suffered their third loss of the season. Still, Muyang looks to sustain the momentum he gained when they take on the CSB Blazers on Tuesday.
“May tiwala kami sa isa’t isa. Ito yung chance namin para makatalo ng contender.”
