Topex Robinson hopes long rest helps troops regain focus

March 12, 2018

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.

The good news is Mike Nzeusseu and MJ Ayaay are fit and healthy and are set to rejoin the rotation.

Zark's Burger-Lyceum and Gamboa Coffee Mix takes the floor at 2 o'clock..

The Coffee Lovers are also motivated to end their struggles to hopefully stay in contention in the wild and woolly race to the quarterfinals.

Gamboa Coffee Mix-St. Clare is coming off a 79-73 loss against Che'Lu-San Sebastian last Tuesday.
