Throughout the 2018 Chooks To Go-Philippine Superliga Invitational Cup, Ara Galang has been a ray of consistency for the F2 Logistics Cargo Movers.
This was most apparent in Game One of the Finals.
With most her teammates playing erratically, Galang kept the Cargo Movers afloat until they carried their own weight in time in the fifth set.
The 23-year-old finished with 18 points and nine excellent receptions. Galang also went out of Game One with staunch confidence that her teammates will bounce back in Game Two.
“Actually, kahit sinong ipasok sa amin, tiwala kami. Tiwala kami sa isa’t isa na kahit sino gamitin sa amin, nothing to worry about,” said Galang, adding that her sudden burst of productivity stems from her confidence in her health and surgically-repaired knee.
“Better na ‘yung knee ko, compared sa dati. Hindi ko na lang iniisip kung may masakit or kung mai-injure ako. Basta, igagalaw ko lang kung ano ‘yung kaya ko. Ibibigay ko lang.”
When Game Two rolls around on Saturday at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig, Galang will show her desire for a third PSL title.
“Ipapakita ko sa kanila (teammates) sa galaw ko. Ipaparamdam ko sa kanila through sa mga gagawin ko sa loob ng court na ganito ‘yung ilalabas ko kasi Finals na,” shared the native of Angeles City, Pampanga.
“Nasa aura ‘yun na Finals na, hindi na basta-bastang game ‘to.”
