Terrafirma coach Johnedel Cardel has so far liked what he has seen with his team in the PBA On Tour.
Cardel would be pleased even more if his Dyip would hit their remaining targets starting with their match against the undermanned San Miguel Beermen Sunday at the Filoil EcoOil Center in San Juan City.
The match, presented by Arena Plus and sponsored by Bingo Plus, is set at 5 p.m.
Terrafirma is looking to snap out of a three-game slide and improve to a 4-6 record going to its last game against unbeaten Magnolia on July 26.
“Sabi ko nga sa mga players, maka-isa tayong panalo sa last two games, okay. Pag nakadalawa much better,” said Cardel on the eve of the match.
For its part, 3-7 SMB is looking to end its pre-season campaign on a bright note. But even coach Jorge Gallent admitted it would take a lot of doing since the injured Mo Tautuaa, Terrence Romeo and Vic Manuel would still be out along with Chris Ross, Marcio Lassiter and Gilas Pilipinas pool members June Mar Fajardo and CJ Perez.
“Like today, pito lang kami,” said Beermen coach Jorge Gallent, who has had to make do with remaining regular players Jericho Cruz, Allyn Bulanadi, Rodney Brondial and Jeepy Faundo, aside from players from their 3X3 team and some pickups led by Noy Baclao.
