GLOBALPORT parades an explosive backcourt that just got an upgrade when it takes on Rain or Shine on Saturday in a PBA Governors’ Cup road game at the Ibalong Centrum for Recreation in Legazpi City.
Already featuring Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle, the Batang Pier backcourt gets a boost with the addition of Asian import Tyler Lamb, who has been declared eligible by the league after all, GlobalPort management confirmed.
The Thai-American shooting guard tries to help the Batang Pier sustain their momentum as they face the Elasto Painters in the Petron Saturday Special at 5 p.m.
After starting the season-ending conference with four straight losses, GlobalPort has started to heat up after winning back-to-back games, the latest an impressive 98-92 decision over San Miguel Beer last week in Antipolo.
The E-Painters have yet to put up a winning streak this conference and are coming off a 101-87 loss to Ginebra last Sunday that left them with an even 3-3 win-loss record.
E-Painters assistant coach Mike Buendia said they are still sticking with import Dior Lowhorn, who fared poorly in their loss to the Gin Kings, tallying just 10 points and eight boards in 31 minutes against his former team.
