for next challenge
After torching Meralco on Sunday, GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio declared that the Batang Pier are now ready for the second phase of the PBA Philippine Cup even without the injured Terrence Romeo.
"We are ready with or without Terrence. We will make some adjustment if he is going there but even without him, this team is ready," said Jarencio who praised his second stringer for surpassing the intensity of his starters.
The second stringers composed of Yousef Taha, Joseph Gabayni, Nicholas Elorde, Michael Juicio and Jonathan Grey were responsible for erecting an insurmountable 29 points lead in the third quarter. Grey top scored for GlobalPort with 24 points, five rebounds and two assists.
