Topex Robinson hopes long rest helps troops regain focus

Well-rested Zark's Burger-Lyceum attempts to get back on the winning track when it takes on Gamboa Coffee Mix-St. Clare Tuesday in the 2018 PBA D-League Aspirants' Cup at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

Jawbreakers coach Topex Robinson took full responsibility for his team's two-game slide but hopes his troops have learned their lessons from those debacles.

Robinson is keeping his fingers crossed that the two-week sabbatical enabled his chargers to refocus and re-energized after their shock 97-88 defeat to Che'Lu Bar&Grill-San Sebastian last February 27.

With a 4-3 slate, the Jawbreakers are scrambling to grab a seat in the quarterfinals and Robinson is optimistic his chargers will get it done.

"These guys are winners and we'll find a way to get back on the winning track. We know that teams are gonna play us differently. I think the mental aspect of the game, yun yung dapat namin binabantayan because teams are playing really well when they're playing against us," he said.
