Rashawn McCarthy was hard on himself after the Columbian Dyip lost to TNT KaTropa in 2019 PBA Philippine Cup action, Friday evening.
The third-year guard was among those who orchestrated the Dyip’s comeback from 18 down, as his three-pointer brought his side to within just three with only 44.4 seconds remaining in the game.
But he suddenly turned from hero to scapegoat when both of his potential game-tying triples missed, allowing the Texters to walk away from the Ynares Center in Antipolo with a 101-98 win in the bag.
“I felt like I let my team down,” said McCarthy, who finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, and four assists.
Aside from those missed opportunities, McCarthy also lamented his failure to take care of the basketball, as he committed nine of the Dyip’s whopping 27 turnovers.
“Had nine turnovers – really crucial turnovers – and I felt like that was a big part of the game. We couldn’t really get a good momentum until the end,” said the Filipino-American guard.
“Even though we still had a chance in the end, the turnovers killed us all throughout the game.”
The loss dropped Dyip’s card to 4-7, and their chances for the playoffs are no longer in their hands. So McCarthy did not hide his disappointment in their failure to put themselves in a favorable spot.
“Even though we still have a chance to make the playoffs, [I’m] kind of disappointed because we could have put ourselves on a better position with the win.”
