Tanquingcen: Banged-up Ginebra to use break to recharge for semis

With at least nine days before his team’s first game in the Commissioner’s Cup semifinals, Barangay Ginebra coach Siot Tanquingcen is looking forward to the break, which would give the team a chance to recharge. According to him, energy and health are the two keys for the team in the semifinals.

“We need to have a balance of both,” said Tanquingcen, who counts himself among the walking wounded in the Ginebra lineup.

Tanquingcen’s right hand remains heavily bandaged after injuring it in frustration after one of their losses this conference. But the health of his players remains his primary concern. Former Most Valuable Players Eric Menk and Jayjay Helterbrand remain in sick bay, while Mark Caguioa became the latest casualty after sustaining a cut on his eyelid in the team’s victory over B-MEG on Friday night.

The Gin Kings bucked the loss of their top local scorer, using a furious fourth-quarter run en route to a 93-84 win over the Llamados to secure one of two outright semis berths.

Tanquingcen said that is the kind of effort needed from the Gin Kings to return to the Commissioner’s Cup finals.

“The energy level being shown by our second team during our practice is a positive sign for us. They were pushing each other. That turned out positive as we became one solid team. I just hope we can continue playing like that during practice and bring that kind of energy every game,” said Tanquingcen, whose team is on the crest of a four-game winning streak.
