MANILA, Philippines — Coach Charles Tiu of the University of St. Benilde was furious after his team’s painful loss to Emilio Aguinaldo College in the second round of the NCAA Season 98 men’s basketball tournament on Sunday.

Tiu had every reason to be displeased when the Blazers blew a golden opportunity to solidify their top spot against the worst team in the league.

“I have been too good to these people. I let them get away with a lot of things, gave them a lot of freedom, and when you give that freedom away, you expect responsibility,” Tiu said after The 80-75 setback gave their first champions a taste of victory in the season after the 0-9 start.

“I think they abused our kindness,” he added.

CSB tackles more than 18 times and has only two flash points while shooting from long distance is only 35.6%.

Skipper JC Cullar gathers teammates after an incredible loss but even that upsets Tiu, who wants to see his soldiers do what is expected of them instead of just talking.

“I’m tired of people saying all the right things, but when you’re out there, you have to back it up. You just have to do it. We didn’t achieve anything,” Tiu said.

Will Gozum acted as the silver lining for Benilde with 19 points and 9 rebounds.

The Blazers dropped to 7-2 but remained in first place after a second run. Lyceum (7-3) had also been annoyed by Mapua before.
