GlobalPort gets boost with return of Stanley Pringle in match against Star
The Batang Pier look to stop the bleeding and they will have Stanley Pringle back when they takew on the Hotshots. 

GLOBALPORT looks to unchain its vaunted two-headed monster again as it takes on Star on Friday night in the PBA Governors’ Cup at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

Stanley Pringle is set return to action and form a lethal backcourt combination  with Terrence Romeo again after missing the last two games to fly to the US and be with his father who recently passed away.

Batang Pier coach Franz Pumaren confirmed the news in a text message on the eve of the matchup that tips off at 7 p.m.

Pringle is averaging 20.8 points on 49-percent shooting, 6.5 boards, and 3.7 assists in 38.8 minutes in six games this conference, the last one against TNT KaTropa in a 119-112 win where he reset his scoring career-high to 30 points on 1-of-16 shooting, along with eight boards, four assists.

And the Batang Pier missed his numbers in their last two games that ended up in losses, the latest a 101-88 decision at the hands of Alaska last Friday.

Jio Jalalon, Mark Barroca, Rome dela Rosa are expected to have their hands full defending the Filipino-American Pringle.
