“I can’t be that disappointed, we fought and really gave them a good fight. We just let go in the end, we missed rebounds when we needed them. Breaks of the game, it is what it is,” Tiu said.

“I think this will help us in the long run. Games like these, we need these games to improve and check where we stand. Obviously, we are not yet on their level, we lost to them twice but this loss I can live with,” he added.

The loss sent St. Benilde (9-3) down to the No. 2 spot with Letran occupying the top.

Tiu, though, doesn’t seem to be worried about his team’s drop in the standings.
