    This loss costs B Meg a lot. It can shatter the confidence of the players going into the playoffs. A tailender defeating the defending champions. That can be the biggest upset of the elimination round. But as the saying goes: “the ball is round.” I just hope that B Meg will not end up 7th or 8th otherwise, it will have to deal with the twice to beat disadvantage. The loss is okay for as long as they will continue to do better in their next assignment. I just hope both the players and the coaching staff will be able to figure out right things to do during the quarterfinals. Good luck to all of you guys. Just focus, hold on, and play with a lot of intensity. This is now the playoffs.
