Terrence Romeo exploded for a career-high 44 points to carry GlobalPort over Rain or Shine, 117-99, and clinch a seat in the 2017 PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals Sunday at Cuneta Astrodome.

The Batang Pier’s super scorer caught fire with a 20-point second quarter. He finished what he started, pouring 19 more points in the payoff period to seal the deal.

Romeo shot 8-of-15 from threes and collected six rebounds and six assists, while backcourt partner Stanley Pringle wound up with 28 markers, six boards, and five assists.

“It was a Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle story, but I guess you have to give credit to our defense,” said GlobalPort coach Franz Pumaren, as GlobalPort limited Rain or Shine to just 39-percent shooting from the field.

The Batang Pier as the sixth team to punch a playoff ticket as they wrapped up the elimination round with a 6-5 card. – INQUIRER.net
