Alyssa Valdez admits Bali Pure knew well how to defend her

Imagine how it feels playing against the people you have spent the past 6 years with? 

On Wednesday night, Alyssa Valdez learned just how.

Taking on Bali Pure — an amalgamation of her former collegiate and semi-pro teammates — was at the very least challenging for the 3-time UAAP MVP, whose team suffered its first loss in the Shakey’s V-League Reinforced Conference.

Valdez admitted the Purest Water Defenders knew how to play to her strengths.

“It’s a healthy competition, you’re gonna challenge yourself,” she said. “They know you e, as in really know you on and off the court. Alam nila gagawin ko, kung kailan ako magda-dropball.”

Nevertheless, the Batangas native said Customs will lick its wounds and adjust in time for their next game against UST.

And while a loss won’t be hard to swallow, she’s happy that playing in situations like that will help her mature on and off the court.
