Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netTerrence Romeo is often criticized for his hero-ball mentality, but with GlobalPort’s season on the line, it was the super scorer’s score-first mindset that won it for the Batang Pier on Sunday night.With GlobalPort down by a point, Romeo took matters into his own hands and drilled a killer trey to beat Alaska for the last quarterfinals berth in the 2017 PBA Commissioner’s Cup.ADVERTISEMENT Trump’s impeachment defense, prosecutors dig in Trump’s impeachment defense, prosecutors dig in Ex-Bulacan town vice mayor, village chief shot dead “My thinking was I know we have to play one more game. It didn’t cross my mind that we’re going to lose,” he said. “Every time I shot the ball, even though I was missing, I was reminding myself that I have to make it and I want to contribute to the team.”Romeo scored 26 points on 9-of-20 from the field that went with five rebounds and three assists.However, the Batang Pier would need more than that from Romeo against top seed Ginebra, which enjoys a twice-to-beat advantage in the quarterfinals.“I still haven’t thought about Ginebra. All I want is to go on practice tomorrow (Monday) and prepare. Whatever happens on Tuesday, all I want is for us to be prepared,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT China reports 17 new cases in viral pneumonia outbreak Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Swing Out Sister back to PH this April For Ina, portraying a zombie is like an ‘out-of-body experience’ “It’s a gutsy move.
