MANILA, Philippines —  Kevin Quiambao promises to unleash his might and prove his mettle as the rightful MVP as La Salle fights to stay alive on his coronation day.

The soon-to-be UAAP Season 86 MVP said people can count on an entirely different Quiambao in Game 2 compared to a forgettable outing in Game 1 when the Green Archers were decimated by the in-form University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, 97-67.

It’s the most lopsided Game 1 in the UAAP Final Four era as Quiambao admitted being disappointed with his performance in La Salle’s deflating 30-point defeat in their first-ever UAAP finale date with UP.

“After the game, syempre sobrang nadismaya ako lalo na sa pinakita ko,” said Quiambao who finished with 11 points, six rebounds and three assists. “Na-disappoint talaga ako sa pinakita ko so this coming Game 2, expect niyo na ibang Kevin Quiambao yung lalaro.”

He shot only 4-of-10 from the field in 31 minutes of play and had a -22 efficiency as the triple-double threat forward struggled against a bevy of defenders thrown at him by the Maroons led by his former National U high school teammate Reyland Torres.

“Nagulat ako sa different looks na binigay nila and ‘di ako nakapag adjust kaagad and it’s my fault rin syempre kasi isa ako sa mga leaders ng team. Kailangan ko lang mag adjust and kailangan ko lang mag-move on sa larong ‘to,” added Quiambao.
