Globalport’s Terrence Romeo scattered 18 points in the final round against James Yap and JC Intal in the 2015 All-Star 3-point shooting competition.
Just like the NBA format, players get to choose a spot wherein they will be shooting five moneyballs for two points each.
Intal, Romeo, and Yap finished the first round with 18 points each as they eliminated eight other participants. Defending champion Mark Macapagal came the closest after the top three with his 16-point effort.
In the final round, Intal’s slow start haunted his chances for a rhythm, as the Barako Bull forward talled 11 points. Romeo waxed hot early in the final round including a perfect second round, which propelled him to the title. Yap punched in 16 points but came a little bit short in the final rack as he cooled down with his shooting.
“Yung unang rack bad start pero pinilit ko na lang mag focus. Kinabahan ako kay James kasi may run siya eh.” Said Romeo after bagging the title.
Interestingly, SMB’s Arwind Santos adjusted the racks facing in front of him during the first round while shooting in his usual freethrow no-knee bending form. However, Santos ended with the lowest output with six. In addition, recently retired Talk ‘N Text stalwart Jimmy Alapag ended with 15 points.
