Winless in four tries, Adamson needs its spikers to step up, according to assistant coach Cherry Macatangay.
“Siguro talagang nag-struggle kami sa mga hitter namin,” she said after the Lady Falcons absorbed a three-set loss to Ateneo last Saturday.
Galanza had eight points against the Lady Eagles, making seven of her 20 spike attempts while contributing a block on the defensive end.
Her output, however, is a far cry from her usual double-digit performances from Season 78.
This, Macatangay attributes to having to do more than just score for an underpowered Adamson team.
“Kita naman na walang katulong si Jema. Talagang mahirap sa part niya kasi lahat dadalhin niya,” she said. “Halos lahat bago nga, di ba? So mahirap talaga sa part niya na i-angat lahat.”
Aside from scoring, Galanza had seven digs and six excellent receptions after putting up a triple-double against powerhouse NU.
In their game against Ateneo, only Awit Joaquin and Bernadette Flora posted more than five points while veteran Joy Dacoron had four.
Macatangay believes the Lady Falcons need to have more balance on offense to get a greater chance to win games.
Aside from that, they also have to address their confidence issues moving forward.
“Siguro isa rin yun (psychological) na problema ng team,” she said. “Kailangan nilang (ayusin). Yung morale, yung confidence nila sa sarili nawawala.”
