Basketball BY SIMON KESLEP Digaso Hornbills coach Bernard Elavo believes that his team’s 75-74 loss to Saints is a wake-up call for his players. “The boys played really well starting from the first quarter but there were some small mistakes that gave the win away to Saints,” said Elavo. He told the Post-Courier that despite the loss, his boys did a very good job both defensively and in offensive plays. The unofficial points ladder sees Southern Flames on 8, Moniplus Tamaraws 6, Saints 6, Chariots 2, Hornbills 2 and Exodus 0. Most of the players in the team were part of Southern Flames development team and were given the opportunity to take lead in a club is a boost for them. “It is a wake up call for my young and upcoming players. Saints are an experienced side and it is eye opening, especially in defense in the last quarter and I think my boys will work more on defense,” Elavo said. Asked if his boys will be well prepare ahead of this Saturday’s game against Flames, Elavo’s advice to the players is to take this game seriously as Flames are the PMBL reigning champions and his boys will need to work more in their defensive plays.
