Terrence Romeo, GlobalPort’s flamboyant guard who has missed all of the team’s 10 games of the season-opening Philippine Cup, is set to make his much awaited return for the Mikee Romero-owned franchise when it takes on Phoenix in the final play date of the elimination round.

The Batang Pier is currently tied in 6th place with Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel with both teams carrying 5-5 records. Unless they get blown off the court by the Fuel Masters, they are already assured of a quarterfinal slot as a result of victories over TNT and Blackwater, two teams holding 5-6 cards.

GlobalPort could end up either sixth or at worst seventh, depending on the results of tomorrow’s double-header.

Romeo, who is coming off a knee contusion injury, averaged 18.4 points, 2.6 rebounds and 5.1 assists in 30.9 minutes of playing time during last season’s Governors’ Cup. On the downside though is his 4.4 turnovers per game.

The 25-year old native of Imus, Cavite was part of the Gilas Pilipinas pool but missed the 1st 2 windows of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. He, however, promised to be ready for the 3rd window set for June 29 to July 2.

GlobalPort will be looking to finish the elimination round on a winning note to avoid a twice-to-win disadvantage in the quarterfinals and the timely addition of Romeo is definitely a push in the right direction for the squad.
