TERRENCE Romeo chose to keep his frustrations to himself this time as GlobalPort reeled to a fourth straight loss in the PBA Governors’ Cup, 120-107, at the hands of Phoenix on Sunday.
Usually accommodating to reporters even after losses, the Batang Pier star politely declined to share his thoughts this time on his team’s winless start in the season-ending conference.
“No comment,” was Romeo’s curt reply. “Sa All-Star na lang muna ako (mag-cocomment).”
The Batang Pier coaching staff had already left the building when reporters also tried to reach them.
Instead, Romeo, who registered 20 points on 9-of-21 shooting, five boards, and four assists in almost 42 minutes of play that went for naught, chose to talk about the defense of his three-point shooting contest crown against a veteran field featuring James Yap and Jeff Chan, among others.
“Kung ibibigay pa rin sa akin,” Romeo said. “Basta ibibigay ko yung best ko.”
“Sobrang shooter ng mga kalaban ko,” he added. “Kailangan paghandaan ko, lalo na sila kuya James tska kuya Jeff Chan, tsaka halos lahat shooter eh. Sana maganda pa rin yung mapakita ko.”
