Terrence Romeo’s much awaited return for the GlobalPort Batang Pier finally happened during the last play date of the 2018 Philippine Cup elimination round.

The 24-year old guard out of Far Eastern University last suited up for the Mikee Romero-owned franchise in September of 2017, during the team’s second to the last game of the Governors’ Cup.

Romeo, who just recovered from a knee contusion injury, missed playing for Gilas Pilipinas as well during the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers’ 1st and 2nd window.

Despite leading his team in scoring with 20 points in a 104-100 loss to the Phoenix Fuel Masters in his season debut, Romeo admitted that he still is a long way off from his normal playing condition.

“Wala ayun ang layo pa, wala pa sa timing. May mga ibang shots sa game na kinakapa ko pa tapos ‘yung ibang play iniisip ko pa kapag tinatawag kasi four days pa lang ano nakapag-ensayo,” he said.

“Medyo naninibago. Medyo iba ‘yung laro sa PBA eh. Kasi ang laro ko parang, ang pinakapapawis ko is jogging lang. Hopefully by next game maka-adjust na ako. Kailangan ko lang panoorin ang game na ‘to and pag-aralan tapos praktisin ang mga dapat kong gawin,” Romeo added.

GlobalPort takes the floor again on March 6, Tuesday for the start of the quarterfinal round. The Batang Pier will be up against a Magnolia Hotshots team armed with a twice-to-beat advantage.
