Stanley Pringle erupts for 50 as GlobalPort nears QF berth

Stanley Pringle rewrote GlobalPort’s history books on Friday, scoring 50 to help the Batang Pier inch closer to the 2018 Commissioner’s Cup quarterfinals by blowing past Columbian Dyip, 133-115, at the SMART Araneta Coliseum.

The Filipino-American already had 25 points in the first half alone, and he punched his 50th point with less than 51 seconds left to play through a breakaway one-handed throwdown, when everything was all but settled.

As per the league’s chief statistician Fidel Mangonon, Pringle is the first local to score 50 in a game since 2004, or since Asi Taulava had 51 points for Talk N Text in a 131-105 win over Purefoods in a Fiesta Conference bout.

The historic performance was made more impressive since Pringle shot 60 percent from the floor, going 9-of-16 from the three-point area. The 6-foot-1 combo guard also had six assists, five rebounds, and three steals to his name.

“Tonight, it’s a Stanley show,” lauded Batang Pier head coach Pido Jarencio of the four-year pro, whose previous career-high was 33 points, which he set back in Christmas Day of 2017 at the Philippine Arena.

“It’s all about Stanley.”

But it wasn’t solely a Pringle show, as other Batang Pier contributed in the win. Malcolm White made 28 points and 14 boards; Jonathan Grey had a conference-high 16 points; and Sean Anthony had 12 markers and 17 caroms.

The returning GlobalPort pieces in Gabby Espinas and Paolo Taha also did not disappoint. The former San Miguel Beer bruiser had four points, three rebounds, and two dimes, while Taha chipped in four markers and six boards.

John Fields III led Columbian with 26 points and 23 rebounds. Eric Camson made 24 points, while guards Jerramy King and Rashawn McCarthy each produced 21 markers on a combined 14-of-29 field goal shooting.

Columbian were coming off a humiliating 27-point loss to the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel this past Wednesday. After Friday evening’s 18-point defeat, the Dyip have now lost by a margin of 22.5 points across two games.

GlobalPort will look to solidify their quarterfinal bid as they take on the Gin Kings on July 6, Friday, 7:00 PM at the Cuneta Astrodome.


The Scores:

Globalport 133 — Pringle 50, White 28, Grey 16, Anthony 12, Tautuaa 8, Guinto 5, Esoinas 4, Taha 4, Elorde 3, Javelona 3, Teng 0.

Columbian 115 — Fields 26, Camson 24, King 21, McCarthy 21, Khobuntin 11, Celda 5, Cahilig 3, Ababou 2, Tubid 2, Corpuz 0, Escoto 0.

Quarterscores: 25-29, 66-56, 96-88, 133-115.
