ROOKIE Terrence Romeo remains confident about Globalport’s playoff hopes in the PLDT myDSL-PBA Philippine Cup despite losing against Barangay Ginebra on Friday night, 108-92.
The former Far Eastern University King Tamaraw is now keeping his fingers crossed Barako Bull will beat Alaska in the final day of the eliminations to keep the playoffs hopes of the Batang Pier alive.
“Syempre stay positive, di pa rin kami susuko," said Romeo on his way out of Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Globalport dropped to eight place with a 5-9 record following the loss to Ginebra, just behind Barako Bull and Meralco, which are tied for sixth to seventh spots with similar 5-8 cards. Alaska is in ninth with a 4-9 slate.
A win by the Energy over the Aces on Sunday will give Batang Pier a free ride to the quarterfinals. But a victory by the Aces would forge a playoff on Monday, depending on the quotient of teams involved.
With the uncertainty of Globalport’s fate, Romeo tries not to be distracted by the team’s current situation.
"Kinausap naman kami ng coaching staff na wag magpa-apekto, siguro makaka apekto ng konti pero hindi naman ganoon kalaki," he said.
