We won this conference three years in a row and everyone’s beefed up their squad to come after us. We know we’re going to get everyone’s best shot every night. We’re prepared for that and we’re ready,” he said.“But the toughest thing for us will be just getting in rhythm. We don’t play for another 10 days and after that, we don’t play for another 17 days. So three games in almost a month is not a lot for us. We’re a rhythm team so I think in the beginning it will be a little rocky but as soon as we find our rhythm I think we’ll be fine. We play against ourself out there, if everyone comes out locked in and on the same page, we’re a tough team to beat.”For now, Ross’ main concern is spending time with his beloved mother before getting back on the grind against Meralco on December 27.“It’s good to have her here live. She was texting me, messaging me on Facebook before and after the games. She’s really our no. 1 fan and it’s good to have her here,” he said.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img
