As Globalport continue to make a their case as one of the better contenders in the Philippine Cup, main playmaker Stanley Pringle says the Batang Pier are playing with better chemistry.
“We all are talking. That one year (I played) helped; I know the players and the chemistry is better,” Pringle said after Globalport escaped Meralco 108-104 Wednesday.
Aside from going up to 6-3 in the team standings for solo 4th, the Batang Pier are also in the upper half of the PBA in offensive rating, defensive rating, net rating, and three-point shooting.
Another reason for the surge of the Batang Pier is a much-revitalized frontline. With the additions of Rico Maierhofer, Jay Washington, and Dorian Pena, Globalport’s frontcourt has given the team the complementary support. Globalport leads the league in rebounding with 52.1 boards a game.
“The frontline has stepped it up definitely,” Pringle said.
Pringle, who has averaged 20.1 PPG, 8 RPG, and 4.4 APG in the conference, also feels Terrence Romeo is starting to complement the team even better.
In the last two games, Romeo fired 62 points from only 35 shots. “Terrence is always going to work hard. He is always going to be a plus for us,” Pringle quipped of his backcourt partner.
Overall, the Batang Pier aim to exceed expectations and have a great campaign again in the conference.
“We are definitely doing good. We are focusing on it game by game and it is going well for us this time.”
