The NU Lady Bulldogs have been notching some important wins in the UAAP Season 77 Women's Volleyball since coach Roger Gorayeb took over the head coaching position last January 5, 2015. Right now they seem to be a Final 4 bound team, with a 5-6 win-loss record, 3rd in the team standings.
After their latest win against the UE Lady Warriors, Coach Roger talked to BallersPinas regarding his coaching stint with the NU Lady Bulldogs and their ace player Jaja Santiago.
"So far okay naman coaching experience ko sa team considering 1 month palang ako dito. Kakarating ko lng Jan. 5. Okay naman pag welcome sakin ng mga players and staff. Madami lang adjustments. Hirap pare baguhin floor defense style kasi nasanay sila sa dating depensa," the former Ateneo mentor disclosed to BallersPinas.
"About naman kay Jaja, need madevelop yung swing ng arms niya, kaso dapat yung setter mai-set ng maayos kasi mabababa set kay Jaja kaya mababa kamay niya pag palo. So far yung lang naman nakikita ko," Coach Roger added.
Let's see if Jaja can show that explosive swing in their next game against the FEU Lady Tamaraws on February 14, 4pm.
