Romeo credits improved frontline for Globalport success



The Globalport Batang Pier’s rise as one of the tougher contenders in the PBA continues as the team tied its best elimination round record with a 7-4 card in the PBA Philippine Cup.

A conference ago, Globalport also finished with a 7-4 record in the 2015 PBA Governors’ Cup. Certainly, the team has picked up from where it left off.

While most of the success is attributed to the backcourt tandem of Stanley Pringle (21.3 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 4.6 APG) and Terrence Romeo (23.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG, 2,8 APG), the latter thinks it is the much revitalized frontcourt complementing the duo well.

“Sobrang laking tulong. Yun yung mga hindi nila gaanong napapansin o nakikita dahil hindi nga sila masyadong umii-score pero sila yung dahilan kung paano kami nakaka-score o paano namin nagagawa ang game namin,” Romeo shared.

“Yung pagbibigay nila ng screens samin, yung paglelead nila, rebounding, yun.”

Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times Romeo credits improved frontline for Globalport success    The Batang Pier focused on reloading their frontcourt during the offseason, adding Rico Maierhofer, Dorian Pena, and Jay Washington in the lineup.

Since then, the Batang Pier have improved its defense to sixth overall in the league; the team is also the best rebounding team thru 11 games.

The team holds a twice to beat edge although they lost to Talk ‘N Text, 107-96 Friday night. Romeo says the next step is to regain focus in time for Globalport’s playoff game, especially after an error-prone night against the Tropang Texters.

“Kailangan naming magfocus sa twice-to-beat game namin. Kailangan naming ma-correct yung mga mistakes namin. Marami kaming napulot this game,” Romeo said.

“Hindi lang kami nakapag-communicate siguro pero alam naman namin na kaya namin mag-bounce back.”
