Pringle wants more from Globalport after first win

Globalport just notched its first win in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup, but skipper Stanley Pringle wants to see more effort from his team in the future games. The Batang Pier took the glow out of Rain or Shine with a 78-70 win Friday at Mall of Asia Arena in a game where defense became the all-encompassing theme. In its first two games, Globalport allowed its opponents to score upwards of 100 points and the 70 points the Elasto Painters scored were a testament to the Batang Pier's improved defense. Pringle, though, wants his team to rebound the ball more despite having a slight 59-56 edge over Rain or Shine in that statistical department. "It was a good win, but we need to...Keep on reading: Pringle wants more from Globalport after first win.....»»

Global stifles Rain or Shine to score first win of the season

In a low-scoring affair, it was one player's offense that stood out the most. Stanley Pringle's early-season tear continued Friday at the MOA Arena, leading the Globaport Batang Pier to a 78-70 win over Rain or Shine in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. Pringle fired 29 points, 20 in the first half, to help the Batang Pier scored their first win of the season against two defeats. Losing an early 14-point lead, Globaport's defense held strong in the fourth, limiting the Elasto Painters to only 14 points to hold on for the win. "Lesson learned yung last two games namin," head coach Pido Jarencio said. "We're giving 109 points per game, pinagusapan namin ng nga players na we have to consider na dumepensa kami and tonight we played good defense," he added. Global got off to a fast start behind Pringle, leadin 19-5 in the first quarter before Rain or Shine settled down and made it a game. The Elasto Painter would take over in the second quarter but the Batang Pier recovered quickly, unloading an 8-0 run to take a 38-33 lead and went to on control the game throughout. After Pringle, Kelly Nabong added 12 points and 13 rebounds for Globalport while Bradwyn Guinto was good for 10 points and nine boards. ROS, who now lost back-to-back games for a 1-2 mark, got 15 points and eight rebounds from Gabe Norwood and another 13 from Mark Borboran.   The Scores: GLOBALPORT 78 - Pringle 29, Nabong 12, Guinto 10, Grey 8, Sargent 8, Gabayni 4, Anthony 3, Flores 2, Elorde 2, Arana 0, Juico 0, Taha 0. RAIN OR SHINE 70 - Norwood 15, Borboran 13, Ahanmisi 10, Belga 8, Nambatac 6, Yap 5, Ponferrada 3, Daquioag 3, Trollano 3, Almazan 2, Maiquez 2,  Quarters: 19-18, 41-35, 58-56, 78-70.     --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA Season 43 preview: The Pack

Forget the PBA impasse for a second. Seriously, forget it. Why? There are basketball games to be played. That's right, the PBA will push through with the opening of the 43rd season as originally scheduled and before we start what appears to be another long, exciting, stressful (for the good reasons, of course), and eventful year of basketball, let's look at all 12 teams first. We start with "The Pack" in this preview. Special thanks to Alaska's coach Alex Compton for this idea. Okay here we go.   Rain or Shine Elasto Painters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Gabe Norwood Ed Daquioag Jericho Cruz Dexter Maiquez Maverick Ahanmisi Jewel Ponferrada Mark Borboran Chris Tiu James Yap Don Trollano Raymond Almazan Rey Nambatac Beau Belga Ronnie Matias Jeremy King Injured/Reserve: Jay Washington Head coach: Caloy Garcia The Elasto Painters, after losing so many key peices from their championship team in the previous offseason, didn't exactly have a bad year in 2017. ROS made it to the playoffs in each of the three conferences. However, the Painters failed to advance to the semifinals in all three as well. Rain or Shine is a champion team but the transition period for this franchise might be extended unless they can actually sustain their strong starts to conferences.   NLEX Road Warriors PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Emman Monfort Michael Miranda Juami Tiongson Jansen Rios Kevin Alas Cyrus Baguio Alex Mallari Larry Fonacier Kiefer Ravena Raul Soyud Kenneth Ighalo Rabeh Al-Hussaini Alfonso Gotladera JR Quinahan Asi Taulava Injured/Reserve: Ronjay Buenafe Head coach: Yeng Guiao It took them a while but the Road Warriors finally figured things out under coach Yeng Guiao. And now with a new star at poing guard plus a another offseason of playing together, this season feels like the actual start of the Yeng Guiao era in NLEX. The Road Warriors have a nice mix of young and veteran talent and they have a champion coach at the helm. The potential is there to make noise in the playoffs.   Phoenix Fuel Masters PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: LA Revilla Jason Perkins Gelo Alolino JC Intal Joseph Eriobu Justin Chua Marvin Hayes Jeff Chan Doug Kramer Jam Cortez Karl Dehesa Rey Guevarra William Wilson RJ Jazul Matthew Wright Head coach: Louie Alas Phoenix is in it to win it. The Fuel Masters missed the playoffs once for the first time in four conferences and the team literally changed almost their entire coaching staff. Coach Louie Alas will have an interesting squad to work with in his debut season with the team. If Phoenix can avoid a major slide similar to what happened in the 2017 Governors' Cup, expect the Fuel Masters to be featured in the playoff race.   KIA Picanto PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Reden Celda Jackson Corpuz JR Reyes Jon Gabriel Philip Paniamogan Rashawn McCarthy Prince Caperal Eric Camson Jan Jamon Pedrito Galanza Roldan Sara Glenn Khobuntin Mark Yee Dylan Ababou Ronald Tubid Head coach: Chris Gavina Kia's unconventional ways will be tested this season. After basically trading away Christian Standhardinger, people will most certainly watch the Picanto to lose. But you never know with this team, they have a brilliant coach and maybe Kia manages to pull off an upset or two this season. Maybe it's not so bad after all. We'll see.   Meralco Bolts PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Finals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Bryan Faundo Mike Tolomia Cliff Hodge Nico Salva Baser Amer Chris Newsome KG Canaleta Garvo Lanete Joseph Sedurifa Anjo Caram Jason Ballesteros Jared Dillinger Reynel Hugnatan Ranidel De Ocampo Mac Baracael Injured/Reserve: Ken Bono Head coach: Norman Black For the past two seasons, Meralco has not performed well in the Philippine Cup. Without an import, the Bolts just shut down for some reason. However, the team can build on a more mature set of locals this time around to make some noise in the All-Filipino. And you already know coach Norman Black is not allowing another All-Filipino collapse from his team.   Blackwater Elite PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Missed playoffs Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Quarterfinals PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Mike Cortez Mike Digregorio Ael Banal Roi Sumang JP Erram Mark Cruz John Pinto Mac Belo James Sena Renz Palma Chris Javier Allein Maliksi Dave Marcelo Raymar Jose Kyle Neypes Head coach: Leo Isaac Blackwater has an interesting team. Just looking at their line up from top to bottom, the Elite have all the tools to make a playoff runs this season. Starting with the All-Filipino, Blackwater can finish the job that they failed to do last season. People forget that the Elite, despite missing the playoffs, had a pretty good Philippine Cup last year.   Globalport Batang Pier PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Quarterfinals Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Yousef Taha Julian Sargent Stanley Pringle Terrence Romeo Nico Elorde Sean Anthony Micahel Juico Jonathan Gray Ryan Arana Kelly Nabong Lervin Flores Joseph Gabayni Bradwyn Guinto Injured/Reserve: Arnold Van Opstal Head coach: Pido Jarencio Regardless if its Pido Jarencio or Franz Pumaren coaching this team, things will be hard for Globalport if Terrence Romeo continues to miss time. But looking at it from another angle, maybe Stanley Pringle shows us another level to his game and takes the Batang Pier to new heights. However, Globalport fans would feel more comfortable if the Bro recovers according to schedule and makes his debut sooner rather than later.   Alaska Aces PBA Season 42 results: Philippine Cup - Quarterfinals Commissioner's Cup - Missed playoffs Governors' Cup - Missed playoffs PBA Season 43 opening day line up: Simon Enciso Chris Banchero Sonny Thoss Calvin Abueva Marion Magat Jake Pascual Jeron Teng Chris Exciminiano Carl Bryan Cruz Abel Galiguez Davon Potts Jvee Casio Kevin Racal Vic Manuel Injured/Reserve: Noy Baclao Head coach: Alex Compton It possibly can't get any worse for Alaska this season. After a down year, the Aces are poised for a bounce back season. If Alaska can re-learn how to finish games, the team can absolutely regain its lofty standing on top of the league. The pieces are there, it's amazing how the Aces lost so many games last season. It cannot get any worse.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Anthony still makes impact for Batang Pier on off shooting night

Fresh from his career third-best 29-point explosion in the GlobalPort's 97-104 defeat against Ginebra last Sunday, the version Sean Anthony who came to play on Friday had a lot of difficulty putting the ball through the hoop. But rather than mope over his offensive struggles, Anthony put his focus on the dirty work for the Batang Pier. The Fil-Am forward collected a unique assists-rebounds double-double in the win, finishing with 13 boards and 12 dimes, a first since Chris Ross did it in 2010. His role as the stabilizing force allowed GlobalPort to claim the 78-70 breakthrough victory over Rain or Shine in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup.

Ginebra comes back to overcome Anthony, GlobalPort

Barangay Ginebra showed its never say die spirit, rallying back to beat GlobalPort, 104-97, Sunday in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup at Smart Araneta Coliseum. The Gin Kings staged a 16-point turnaround in the final frame as they chipped away the Batang Pier's 68-77 deficit and banked on LA Tenorio, Japeth Aguilar, and Greg Slaughter down the stretch to stay unscathed after two games. Despite staying afloat at 2-0, Ginebra coach Tim Cone wasn't satisfied with how Ginebra continues to be in cloud nine from its 2017 Governors' Cup conquest. "That's what teams coming from championships do. This is the way they do it. They sleepwalk for three-and-a-half quarters and try to win a ga...Keep on reading: Ginebra comes back to overcome Anthony, GlobalPort.....»»

Jarencio laments late-game meltdown in loss to Ginebra

Globalport had Ginebra firmly in its grasp for the most part of the two teams' matchup Sunday in the PBA Philippine Cup. The Batang Pier were holding their fort against the constant charges the Gin Kings did for almost 45 minutes. Then Aljon Mariano connected with Japeth Aguilar for an alley oop dunk with 3:22 left in the game that gave Ginebra a 95-93 lead eventually breaking Globalport's defenses. Aguilar's dunk sparked the Gin King's game-closing 11-4 run to get the 104-97 victory and Globalport head coach Pido Jarencio said those last three minutes were the bane in their loss. "We made mistakes on defense, for sure we have to be consistent," said Jarencio in Filipino ...Keep on reading: Jarencio laments late-game meltdown in loss to Ginebra.....»»

Lack of experience, chemistry doomed GlobalPort in loss to Gins, says Anthony

Charge it to experience. Sean Anthony opted to look at the positives rather than dwell on the negatives following GlobalPort's 97-104 defeat to Ginebra on Sunday. "We're a young team. We're a new team, and we gotta learn to play with each other still. We have five rookies, four new players, and a new coach, so we're gonna just look at the positives," he said. In control for the first three quarters, the Batang Pier lost grip of the game in the fourth frame as the Gin Kings exploded for 36 points. "We had the lead almost the whole game, up until the end, and we had our spots. We just didn't close it down the stretch," he said. "Our lack of team chemistry and our youth s...Keep on reading: Lack of experience, chemistry doomed GlobalPort in loss to Gins, says Anthony.....»»

Coach Tim says Ginebra better off if it lost to Global

Despite completing a classic NSD comeback against Globalport to go 2-0 in the 2018 Philippine Cup, Ginebra head coach Tim Cone was not happy about the way his team played Sunday. While his team won the game, Cone had a problem with the Gin Kings having to come back against a Batang Pier crew that was missing Terrence Romeo. "Well that's what teams coming from championships do. This is the way they do it. They sleepwalk for 3 and a half quarters and try to win a game down the stretch," Cone said on Ginebra's 104-97 victory against Globalport.  "That's what we're trying to avoid. In my experience I've seen it. They don't play until they really have to and I'm very distrubed by that," he added. The Gin Kings were lethargic almost all game long as Globalport took control, leading for 33 and a half minutes on the strength of Sean Anthony's offensive explosion and a near triple-double from Stanley Pringle. Cone was visibly upset at the bench as well as the Gin Kings struggled to erase a nine-point deficit before tha brave fourth-quarter stand in the last six minutes and change of the game. The winningest PBA head coach even went ahead and said that Ginebra might have been better long-term if it lost this one. "Happy, I'm not happy. I'm okay with the win, but I'm not happy about the way we played. We need to be better if we're going to make some noise in the All-Filipino," he said. "We might have been better off losing this basketball game to wake us up and realize that we can't do that. Because now, it's gonna encourage us to do it again. We think we can get away with it, and I've just known through experience, you just don't get away with those things over the long haul," Cone added. Ultimately, the champion mentor says that it all boils down to Ginebra beating the teams they're supposed to. With a loaded lineup, the Gin Kings are certainly more than capable of taking down all PBA teams and do it convincingly. "We need to get ourselves fired up right from the very start of the basketball games and play," Cone said.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Long break helped GlobalPort correct ‘bad habits,’ says Jarencio

GlobalPort coach Pido Jarencio sees his team's two-week break as a blessing in disguise. Jarencio said the Batang Pier were able to address some of their concerns during the break. "We prepared hard. We corrected our bad habits and fixed our offense and defense. I think we can really see the progress of this team this time," he said. GlobalPort is coming off a 104-115 defeat to NLEX in its season opener on Christmas. Jarencio, however, charged the defeat to "first game jitters" as he expects his wards to fare better comeSundaywhen they face Ginebra at Smart Araneta Coliseum. "We seemed like we were in shock.

Don’t expect to see Terrence Romeo with Globalport this month, with Gilas next month

Terrence Romeo stayed on the court for nearly an hour after Globalport wrapped up its practice on Friday at the Greenmeadows Gym in Pasig. However, that seems to be the most action the Batang Pier star will be seeing anytime soon. Romeo said that remains no timetable for his return and that it is unlikely he will be back on the court this month. “’Di ko pa nakikitang kaya ko this January. Malabo,” he told reporters. The high-scoring guard is recovering from a knee injury and is yet to suit up this season. According to him, his knee is far from a hundred percent. “Tumatakbo ako konti-konti and nararamdaman ko yung pressure (sa tuhod), masakit. Ayokong pilitin,” he said. He also said that it isn’t just his knee that has been affected, but his conditioning as well. As he put it, “Medyo nawala ako sa shape nung nakalipas na buwan kaya kelangan ko rin magpapayat nang konti para pagbalik ko, hindi mapupunta lahat ng pressure sa tuhod ko. “ Along with missing out more than half of Globalport’s elimination round schedule, Romeo’s injury will also sideline him from the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers in February. Gilas will be resuming training on Monday for a looming showdown with fellow undefeated team Australia in its home court on February 22. Romeo said that he has already informed coach Chot Reyes about his status. “Actually, nakausap ko si coach last month and sinabi ko nang kung pwedeng bigyan ako ng chance na makapag-try out ulit, pero after February na,” he said. He then continued, “Si coach Chot naman, ‘di siya nagko-close ng opportunity para sa kahit kaninong tao kaya nung in-open ko yun, sabi niya, of course, open pa rin yung pool.” Of course, the former UAAP MVP said that when that time comes, he knows full well he has to earn a spot. “Siyempre, kelangan ko maging deserving by that time. Kung magiging deserving ako by that time, makikita naman nila yun. Kung di naman ako deserving, maiintindihan ko naman din yun,” he said. He then continued, “Sisiguraduhin kong by (the next window), magiging healthy ako and kundisyon para 100 percent ako na makapag-tryout para sa pool.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

By the Numbers: Christmas Clasico

With all 12 teams finally playing at least one game, the 43rd PBA season is officially here. Like for real. And with that in mind, a brand-new By The Numbers PBA edition is also here. This should be fun. Okay let's do this. Oh Happy Holidays, Kapamilya!   10 Number of Christmas Day wins for Brgy. Ginebra, most in the league and it's not even close.

This has to be killing Magnolia fans all over.   122 Number of points scored by Ginebra's Mark Caguioa on Christmas Day games, most in the league. The Spark scored seven points in the Gin Kings win over Magnolia, pushing his total to 122 points.   24.5 Average points of Globalport's Terrence Romeo on Christmas Day games (minimum of two games), best in the PBA. However, the Bro sat out the Batang Pier's loss to NLEX this year as he continues to deal with a knee injury.     39 Sticking to scoring on Christmas, the now retired Jimmy Alapag holds the single-game record for most points on Christmas. The Mighty Mouse scored 39 points, 24 from beyond the arc, in 2004 when the then Phone Pals lost to Ginebra on December 25.   2 Number of undefeated PBA teams at the Philippine Arena. NLEX (1-0) joined Kia (2-0) as the only two teams not to take an L at the massive INC-owned facility. The PBA has played six playdates at the Philippine Arena so far. Blackwater (0-2), TNT (0-1), and Globalport (0-1) have yet to win there. Meanwhile, Meralco is 1-2 at the Philippine Arena and Ginebra is 5-1 including one championship.   19 Kiefer Ravena's scoring average so far in the PBA.

Grey steps up for GlobalPort sans Romeo

BOCAUE --- Jonathan Grey was given an opportunity and he made the most out of it. Without Terrence Romeo, the sophomore guard made filled in and unleashed 13 points with two assists to boot 25 minutes for GlobalPort. "Terrence is not with us so we really needed to go hard," Grey admitted in Fiilipino as his playing time increased under returning head coach Pido Jarencio and formed a decent supporting role with lead guard Stanley Pringle. Grey, however, wasn't satisfied with his performance especially with the Batang Pier dropping a 115-104 decision to NLEX in their Christmas Day clash at Philippine Arena.
