PBA IMAGESIt wasn’t the triumphant return Jeron Teng was expecting with AMA Online Education.Coming back after his one-week foray with Mighty Sports in Dubai, the La Salle star still had his usual numbers but looked out of sync as the Titans fell to Wangs Basketball, 98-93 on Monday.ADVERTISEMENT Motorcycle taxis ‘illegal’ starting next week — LTFRB board member Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next But Teng failed to carry that scintillating performance over in his 2017 PBA D-League Aspirants’ Cup return, admitting that the Couriers really had a terrific gameplan against his side.“Maybe the other team really prepared well and came out to play today. We lacked the energy and it’s definitely a learning experience for us,” he said.Teng, though, vowed to perform better for the Titans’ last game against Cafe France next Monday, where they will be gunning for their sixth victory in nine games to secure a seat in the quarterfinals.“It’s unfortunate, but we’ll be better for our next game,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
