The De La Salle University Lady Spikers are in a precarious situation after one of their worst games in recent memory.

The three-time defending champs surrendered a season-high 37 errors en route to a straight-sets loss to the University of the Philippines. The Lady Spikers have two other losses, but none more frustrating than their third in eight outings.

Eleven-time UAAP champion coach Ramil De Jesus pointed to his team’s loose hands with service errors, especially at the crucial junctures of the match.

“Siguro, unang-unang gagawin namin, mag-serve ng buong practice. So, ‘yun ang problema eh, ‘yung pinaka-basic – mag-serve,” said De Jesus when asked about his team’s priority.

“Sabi ko naman sa kanila, hindi kalaban ninyo ang magpapanalo sa inyo. Kayo ang magpapanalo sa sarili niyo. Unang-una siyempre, ‘yung serve. Kung mawawalan ka ng tiwala sa serve, eh ano pa ‘yung kaya mong gawin? Dahil sarili mo na ‘yan eh. Ikaw na ‘yan, wala ka namang kalaban sa service line. So malaking factor ‘yun para sa team na ganoon ang naging performance, lalo na sa service namin.”

De Jesus reiterated that his team have plenty of adjustments to make, as UP did not do anything different from their past outings.

“Hindi naman, wala akong nakikitang bagong ginawa ng UP eh. So yung mga bata lang, andoon naman yung game plan pero hindi nakasunod. May mga oras lang talaga na nawalan ng tiwala sa sarili. So yun lang, wala akong nakitang bago sa ginawa ng UP,” said De Jesus.

“‘Yung two straight win namin, malaking bagay ‘yun kasi expected ko nga andoon na yung pagiging matured nila maglaro. So hindi pa lumabas. Baka naghahanap ng magli-lead sa loob ng maayos, ng leader.”

Miguel Luis Flores fell face first into sports writing in high sch9l and has never gotten up. He reluctantly stumbled into the volleyball beat when he started with Tiebreaker Times three years ago. Now, he has waded through everything volleyball - from its icky politics to the post-modern art that is Jia Morado's setting.
