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.

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.....»»

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.....»»

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. "For me, I'm not happy with the way I played," the 25-year-old swin...Keep on reading: Grey steps up for GlobalPort sans Romeo.....»»

Balanced NLEX subdues GlobalPort in Christmas clash

BOCAUE --- NLEX shared the blessings and in turn, went on to have a merry Christmas after a 115-104 win over GlobalPort to stay unbeaten in the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup Monday at Philippine Arena here. Leaning on a balanced attack, the Road Warriors negated the 33-point outing from Stanley Pringle to improve to 2-0 in the conference. Kiefer Ravena unloaded 20 points and had two rebounds, five assists and four steals to lead the assault for NLEX. He capped another stellar outing and punctuated the Road Warriors' victory with a slam with 37 seconds left. "We just gave ourselves and our supporters a really nice Christmas gift on Christmas day," said NLEX coach Yeng Guiao.

Ravena relieved to just play vs Pringle with Romeo still out for GlobalPort

BOCAUE --- Kiefer Ravena felt relieved that this Christmas, he only had to deal with one of GlobalPort's two-headed monster in Stanley Pringle and not the full experience on Monday. "I'm glad that it's just Stan," NLEX's second overall pick in the 2017 PBA Rookie Draft said in Filipino after NLEX's 115-104 win over GlobalPort. "If you add Terrence (Romeo) there, it will be much, much harder for us." But even if the Batang Pier only had Pringle with Terrence Romeo still recovering from his knee contusion injury, Ravena admitted it was still a tough challenge for him facing the 2015 Rookie of the Year. "It's still hard to guard Stan. It's hard to contain Stan that way," he sai...Keep on reading: Ravena relieved to just play vs Pringle with Romeo still out for GlobalPort.....»»

Pringle wary of Ravena ahead of GlobalPort-NLEX tiff: ‘He’s already a great player’

Stanley Pringle is well aware of how good Kiefer Ravena is having shared the court with the NLEX rookie in pickup games years ago. "I've played with Kiefer since before I was in the PBA. He's great competitor and a hard worker," he said. But that was then. Now, Pringle looks to test Ravena's mettle when GlobalPort faces NLEX on Christmas Day at Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan. Ravena is coming off a stupendous debut for the Road Warriors where he flirted with a triple-double with 18 points, seven rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in their 119-115 victory over Kia last Wednesday. Pringle, meanwhile, will be tasked to lead the fight for the Batang Pier in their sea...Keep on reading: Pringle wary of Ravena ahead of GlobalPort-NLEX tiff: ‘He’s already a great player’.....»»

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.....»»

San Miguel, TNT, Ginebra have target on their backs for PBA Philippine Cup

Three-time champion San Miguel is the unanimous team-to-beat as the PBA gears up for its season-opening Philippine Cup. The Beermen were the only ones mentioned by all of the team governors who were asked about the top team in the tournament. “I think it’s still gonna be San Miguel because of its intact lineup,” Meralco alternate governor Ryan Gregorio told reporters in the league’s preseason press conference on Wednesday at the Okada in Paranaque. Indeed, the three-time champions will be parading the same core of four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo, Alex Cabagnot, Marcio Lassiter, Chris Ross, and Arwind Santos. That’s not even counting 2017 PBA Draft top pick Christian Standhardinger who is still fulfilling contractual obligations in the Asean Basketball league. Alaska’s Dickie Bachmann, Blackwater’s Dioceldo Sy, Ginebra’s Alfrancis Chua, Magnolia’s Rene Pardo, NLEX’s Ramoncito Fernandez, Rain or Shine’s Mert Mondragon, TNT’s Magnum Membrere, and even San Miguel’s own Robert Non could only agree with Gregorio. Chua and Pardo, however, explained that the Beermen will not be able to truly take their place as the top team in the tournament as they are yet to have Standhardinger. “SMB, hindi pa malakas yan, wala pa si Standhardinger. Sa second conference pa,” the former said. With that opening for contention, team governors also named Ginebra and TNT as teams to watch. “If you know your basketball, Ginebra ang pipiliin ko,” Pardo said, talking about the Gin Kings of multi-titled mentor Tim Cone, Japeth Aguilar, Joe Devance, Greg Slaughter, LA Tenorio and Scottie Thompson. “Yung TNT, intact yung lineup tapos they also have bigs who can match-up with June Mar,” Non said of the KaTropa mentored by Nash Racela and fronted by Jayson Castro, RR Pogoy, and Kelly Williams. Meanwhile, Terrence Romeo and Stanley Pringle’s Globalport as well as Kevin Alas and Kiefer Ravena’s NLEX are seen as darkhorses in the tournament. The 43rd Season of Asia’s first pay-for-play league commences on December 17 at the Araneta Coliseum. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Globalport ready for Philippine Cup with or without Terrence Romeo

Globalport's undisputed alpha is Terrence Romeo. But with the Bro on the mend after a knee injury, the Batang Pier will start their 2018 Philippine Cup campaign without their undispusted alpha. Fortunately, it seems like Globalport is still up to the task. After all, Stanley Pringle is still there and the guy is pretty much 1A to Terrence's 1 in terms of status with the team. Also, head coach Pido Jarencio, who took over from Franz Pumaren after the latter went on a leave of absence, believes that the Batang Pier are ready with or without the Bro. "Wala naman problema, kung ready na si Terrence, ang team is ready na rin for him. Naka-prepare na rin naman lahat kami," Jarencio said. "Kung si Terrence wala, still we're ready. Pagdating ni Terrence, malaking bagay makakatulong siya. Kung wala si Terrence, okay din kami kasi ready naman," he added. While Terrence has no definite timetable for a return, he's definitely not playing again this year and will most likely suit up by January 2018. Good thing Globalport only will only play one official PBA game for the rest of the year. "Siya yun eh, sabi niya [Romeo] by January [okay] na siya," Jarencio said. "First game naman namin is December 25, for sure second game namin January na. Kung babalik si Terrence in a month or three weeks from now, okay pa rin kami dahil syempre kailangan ma-condition pa rin siya," he added.   --- 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.
