When Terrence Romeo took the 2015 Jones Cup by storm, it was clear he was a special fit for Gilas Pilipinas as he erased any shade of doubt by overwhelming people’s expectations.

Romeo became an all-important offensive weapon, anchoring Gilas’ attacks while also providing a solid threat from the three-point line.

In a decisive game over the Wellington Saints which Gilas defeated, 84-81, to virtually take home the MVP Cup Saturday, Romeo once again dazzled with 18 points, including 4-for-8 from three-point area.

Despite the skyrocketing improvement, Romeo credits the entire Gilas team for the trust that they have for him, and the way they helped him mature as a playmaker on the floor.

“Yung tiwala na ang pinakamahalagang bagay na pwede mong makuha sa coach. Kaya kahit anong mangyari binibigay ko ang best ko para hindi to mawala,” Romeo shared.

“Thankful ako sa teammates ko dahil nagagawa ko ang kung anong dapat kong gampanan. Nalalaro ko ang laro ko at yung part na pagiging mature, hindi ko man nakukuha agad, sila ang tumutulong sa akin.”

Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times Romeo credits Gilas experience for continuous growth    In the affair against the Saints, Romeo added he was only on the receiving end of great attacks by the Gilas members, resulting to the Saints defense collapsing and leaving him wide-open.

“Hindi binibigay sa akin ang play. Sine-set lang ni Coach Tab sa team para may ma-open. Nagkakataon lang na yung mga teammates ko sobrang galing mag-read ng defense,” he relayed.

“Kanina umatake si Calvin sa gitna. Naka-hit siya ng dalawang floater kaya yung taong dapat naghe-help sa akin, hindi na maka-help dahil kailangan siyang bantayan sa loob. Kaya ako nalilibre. So team effort lang.”

Heading into the FIBA Asia Championship, Romeo will be one of the guards Gilas can rely on, and his spectacular performance starts with the trust which leads to more confidence on the floor.

“Dapat hanggang hindi mo naririnig ang buzzer same pa rin ang kumpiyansa mo, and same rin ang tiwala mo sa teammates mo,” he shared.

“Dapat focused ka lang at confident kang masho-shoot mo ang tira mo.”
