George Pascua, who led Petron to back-to-back titles, will be calling the shots, while Michael Carino of Cignal will serve as his chief deputy.

Pascua admitted that it’s going to be an uphill climb, especially after the Filipinas were bracketed with powerhouses Bangkok Glass, 3BB Nakhonnont, and Idea Khonkaen, who emerged as top teams in last year’s edition.

The other pool, on the other hand, consists of Supreme Chonburi-E Tech, Nakhon Ratchasima, King-Bangkok, and Hong Kong.

“Wala tayong idea kung ano ang laro nila. Medyo mahirap pang kapain. Pero sana madali kaming makapag-adjust kapag nadun na sa laro,” said Pascua, whose Tri-Activ Spikers are already in the final round of the ongoing PSL Invitational Conference together with the Lady Troopers and the Cargo Movers.
