We need to have the proper mind-set in the next 24 hours,” Hotshots coach Chito Victolero said.The Hotshots will definitely be the more tired team coming into this contest, having also played last Sunday, losing, 97-93, to Barangay Ginebra in overtime in the most-watched game of the tournament so far.ADVERTISEMENT Bloomberg: US would benefit from more, not fewer, immigrants SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte LATEST STORIES Mojdeh dominates older foes for five Batang Pinoy golds “There’ still a lot of work to do.
