PBA Media Bureau

GLOBALPORT hardly flinched even without its leading scorer, hacking out a 102-90 win over KIA on Sunday in the PBA Governors Cup at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Import Murphey Holloway and Stanley Pringle took care of business for the Batang Pier in the absence of gunner Terrence Romeo as the duo fired 29 and 21 points, respectively.

The Batang Pier evened their record at 2-2 and putting them in a perfect position to move in the upper half of the standings by the time Romeo returns from his duty with Gilas Pilipinas.

The team plays powerhouse San Miguel next this Friday also at the Big Dome.
Coach Franz Pumaren said it was a ‘struggle win’ for Globalport as the long three week layoff obviously affected the team.’

“The layoff was kind of hard on our part. We were a bit sluggish, sluggish in a way that we were rushing things,” he said afterwards.

The Batang Pier last played July 30 in a 124-108 loss to Barangay Ginebra. – PBA
