Star gets back on the winning track with 109-83 win over skidding GlobalPort



PBA Media Bureau

The Star Hotshots finally hit their strides once again, snapping out of a slump to hurdle the GlobalPort Batang Pier, 109-83, and get back into contention for the Top Four in the PBA Governors Cup elims at the Smart Araneta Coliseum last night.

Playing with a sense of urgency, the Hotshots pummeled the Batang Pier in each quarter for the emphatic victory that ended their three-game slide.

Making things easier for the Hotshots were the sub-par games of GlobalPort main men Stanley Pringle and Terrence Romeo.

Pringle struggled with a 2-of-15 shooting in his return from a layoff.

Putting the defensive and rebounding effort lacking in their games in their last three outings, the Hotshots got back on the winning track and caught up with the San Miguel Beermen and the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters at 5-3.

The Batang Pier, meanwhile, suffered a third straight loss and fell deeper down the chart with a 3-6 mark at ninth place. – PBA

STAR 109 – Hill 32, Sangalang 17, Ramos 9, Lee 9, Barroca 8, Mendoza 7, Pingris 6, Reavis 4, Brondial 4, Jalalon 4, Simon 2, Melton 2, Pascual 1, Abundo 0, Gamalinda 0.

GLOBALPORT 83 – Holloway 20, Anthony 12, Romeo 11, Guinto 11, Baracael 10, Pringle 5, Cortez 5, Cardona 5, Hubalde 2, Paredes 2, Mamaril 0, Celiz 0, Grey 0, Arana 0.
