Since the all-Filipino conference, I rarely changed my starting five except if there is an import, and even if we had an import, you can see how great our local players are because they’re still contributing to the team,” he said.

Austria has always leaned on his starters and in return, they never let him down, showing poise through out the season, as San Miguel racked up win after win and championship after championship.“I’m proud and I’m happy for them because they understand what we need from them, and they’re proving that what we’re doing is what’s good for the team and it brought us two championships,” the affable mentor said.But Austria knows that the work wasn’t done by the starters alone, giving credit to his bench as an integral part of the Beermen’s success.“Our bench players sacrificed a lot,” he said. “They don’t get much playing time, but when we put them in the game, you could see that they’re stepping up. And even if they’re on the bench, they keep on cheering our first five and I think that’s a big reason why we’re winning.”ADVERTISEMENT Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles03:02NAZARENO 2020: ‘Small’ sacrifices, big blessings02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?
