PBA Media Bureau

Calvin Abueva and Terrence Romeo led the new-look Gilas Pilipinas squad to a 125-112 come-from-behind victory over the Visayas All-Stars and escape the 2017 PBA All-Star Week unscathed Sunday at Hoops Dome in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

The energetic Alaska forward and GlobalPort spitfire teamed up as they infused the much-needed boost for the Nationals in the fourth quarter, where they unleashed a 36 points to finally charge ahead and snare the win.

Coming off the bench, Abueva topped Gilas with 26 points, 21 of which coming in the second half, on top of seven rebounds, while Romeo, adjudged as the MVP for this leg, finished with 25 markers, four assists, and two rebounds in the team’s first game since coach Chot Reyes announced the roster for the 2017 SEABA Championship two days ago. – INQUIRER.net
