Unfortunately, that didn’t work out today,” he said.Coach Leo Austria had a chance to experiment with an array of lineups, pairing Standhardinger at times with fellow big men June Mar Fajardo, Arwind Santos, and import Troy Gillenwater.Though that resulted in varying success, the 28-year-old slotman knows that he still needs time to better blend in with his new teammates.“I think the chemistry was good but obviously, the team’s still adjusting to that,” he said. “I’m looking forward to further exploring what we can do. I’m looking forward to getting a victory and get us on the right track again.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award LATEST STORIES The Fil-German big man got his first shot down — his patented baseline jumper — on his way to four points, five rebounds, two assists, and two steals.
