Jayson Castro, Marqus Blakely REACT To TNT Missing Playoffs

PBA Governors' Cup 2018 Updates & Results. For the first time since the 2015 Governors’ Cup, the TNT KaTropa missed the playoffs. The KaTropa ended their 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup campaign in disappointment as Ginebra defeated TNT, 112-93 on Sunday at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

According to a report from Reuben Terrado of, TNT veteran Jayson Castro has expressed his dismay on their early exit.

“Yung best effort, binigay na namin sa game kanina pero talo pa rin, Isang way na rin siguro ‘yun para makapag-prepare sa next conference at makapag-training camp kami kasi siguro kailangan namin.”

“Kitang kita naman ‘yung chemistry ng players at coaches, hindi pa ganun ka-ano kasi ilang games pa lang. ‘Yung offseason na ‘to, ito ‘yung time para sa amin na makuha ‘yung gusting i-apply na sistema ni coach Bong at coach Mark,”

“I think, etong season na ‘to, hindi man lang kami umabot sa semis. Siyempre, nakakalungkot kasi last season, lagi kaming semis and then, nakapasok kami ng finals,”

“Hopefully, next season makabawi kami kasi sobrang nakakahiya na -- before contender kami and then ngayon lagi kaming out."

As per, the Katropa's third import this conference, Marqus Blakely, believes the team chemistry was something TNT lacked especially after head coach Bong Ravena and consultant Mark Dickel took over handling the team midway through the season-ending meet.
"We're still a new team after coach came in, I came in, there's just a lot of things going on in this conference,"

"I think it just takes a little bit more time and practice to get to where we are."

"All I takes was a couple of wins, other teams to lose, and we could be right there, unfortunately, we didn't get there."

"I'm just disappointed with myself that I didn't make the playoffs,"
