Since the start of the UAAP Season 78 women’s basketball tournament, the De La Salle Lady Archers have been preaching about being ready whether you are a starter or the last person to come off the bench.
This anyone-can-take-charge system has given the Lady Archers a big boost as it develops all players from top to bottom to become mature when they take on the floor.
When someone struggles, another one steps up. The latest to shine for the Lady Archers is forward Bennette Revillosa, who scored 13 points and grabbed 8 rebounds when La Salle edged University of Santo Tomas on Sunday,
“Mas naging focused ako ngayon and A-game yung pinakita ko,” Revillosa, who played 24 minutes, shared.
Head coach Cholo Villanueva stuck to his substitute forward instead of usual starter Alyanna Ong and was rewarded towards the end when Revillosa hit key baskets inside by moving well without the ball.
“Every training sa ilalim na ako pume-puwesto kaya yun na ang naging laro ko. Mas madali sa akin dahil nahihirapan ako kapag sa taas. Minsan na-a-agawan ako,” Revillosa, who shot 5-for-11 from the field, said.
On the defensive end, Revillosa helped La Salle shut down the paint against a physically-imposing Tigresses side.
“Mas maging mahigpit yung depensa namin sa ilalim, and mas nag-hustle kami,” Revillosa added.
Her performance once again validated the importance of La Salle’s system, and Revillosa only took advantage of the moment she was on the floor.
“Nagfo-focus talaga kaming lahat maski long or short minutes. Sinasabihan kami na be ready lagi. Dapat ready kami anytime,” she said.
