Dy on twice-to-beat advantage: ‘We don’t think of it as advantage’

In its victory against Adamson University in four sets today, 25-21, 25-15, 22-25, 25-18, the De La Salle Lady Spikers locked the first Final Four twice-to-beat advantage to their hold.

But senior opposite spiker Kim Dy does not mind about this advantage.

For her, they need to be prepared in every game they play, especially now that the Final Four is approaching.

“No naman. We don’t think of it as advantage kasi if we think of it parang super confident naman namin,” she said.

“Baka ano pang mangyari sa game. Every game we have to work on ‘yung mga kulang pa namin,” she added.

Dy, who scored 17 points off 13 attacks, three aces and a block, also made mention of the possibility of her team peaking on the right time this season.

“We don’t think naman na nagpepeak na kami. It’s just that every game we have to play our game,” she said.

While they already take hold of the first spot, Dy still sees a lot of things to improve on their game.

One of which, she said, is not to wait for their opponents to commit mistakes for them to score.

“We should not wait for our opponents to make errors for us to have points, we have to work for our points. That’s one thing we have to work on pa,” she said.

It can be recalled that Dy vowed to avenge their loss against the Lady Falcons in the first round.

To this, Dy has this to say: “Our motivation is to beat all teams who beat us in the first round. And that’s what we did. May hugot and that’s our motivation coming to this game.”

Dy is on her last playing year and she said she dedicates this season for her coaches, temmates and the entire La Sallian community.

“Sad siyempre. Pero happy in a way na patapos na. Nakakalungkot kasi this is my last season,” Dy said when asked about what she feels on her final UAAP playing year.

She added: “Before coming into the season, ang dami naming sinacrifice na time for our studies and family. We want to do it for the coaches, communities and our teammates also.”

Adamson, meanwhile, is already eliminated in the Final Four race after this La Salle win.
