The senior player Marcio Lassiter’s incredible shooting ability was primarily responsible for the Beermen’s victory, even though they gave up several statistical categories, including assists, fastbreak points, and offensive rebounds. “Marcio Lassiter,” SMB head coach Jorge Gallent said in the press conference following the game, expressing his gratitude for Lassiter’s critical part in their achievement.
Lassiter scored 23 points in the second half, which is even more impressive given that he accomplished his stunning scoring feat in the first half. He notably made a perfect six of six from beyond the arc during this critical moment, dropping three vital three-pointers. His game-winning long-range bomb, which gave the Beermen a 111-108 lead, came just forty-three seconds before the final buzzer, capping an incredible effort.
Coach Gallant explained the exceptional nature of Lassiter’s contribution by stating that an ankle issue had kept the seasoned shooter out of practice for around 12 to 15 days. Lassiter’s return was terrific after he missed the team’s opening two games while recuperating.
“That’s the Marcio Lassiter we all know,” Gallant said, expressing his happiness at seeing Lassiter back to form. I’m thus thrilled with his game. All I can hope is that he continues it.” The 36-year-old’s tenacity and capacity to perform under duress demonstrated the extent of his influence on the group’s accomplishments.
Shortly, the injury-plagued Beermen will play again against the North Batang Pier on December 8. Coach Jorge Gallent was optimistic that Lassiter would continue to be a key player in San Miguel’s pursuit of victory, anticipating that the sniper would be even more prepared and at the top of his game. The phrase “Cheers to that” sums up the team’s excitement for upcoming challenges and their shared expectation of continued excellence from Marcio Lassiter.
