PBA: Romeo could miss another two games for SMB

Looks like Terrence Romeo will be out for San Miguel for a couple more games. In his season debut with the Beermen last Friday, Romeo exited early after suffering an apparent left ankle injury. The official diagnosis is he has a sprained ankle and he’s been advised to give it a rest for a week. The Beermen have two games set for Jan. 25 and Jan. 27 and it appears that the team plans to shut down Romeo at least through the first month of the new year. “Terrence, we don’t know yet dahil we don’t want to aggravate his injury,” head coach Leo Austria said. “I think he will miss two more games siguro,” he added. Romeo has no problem missing the two upcoming games though he is trying to get himself healthy quickly enough to rejoin the Beermen. Still, he’s in no rush in forcing his ankle. “One week rest siguro para sure, yun yung sinabi sakin nung nagpa-check ako. Titignan ko kung aabot sa next game,” Romeo said. “Pero di ko kasi pwedeng madaliin eh. Alam naman ni coach eh, susunod lang ako kung ano gusto nila. Susubukan ko lang na mas mapabilis para makatulong ako sa team,” Terrence added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

PBA: Standhardinger on SMB: “When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us“

The real San Miguel finally showed up. After a shock loss to Columbian to start their 2019 Philippine Cup title defense, the Beermen recovered rather quickly, pummeling Brgy. Ginebra Sunday at the Big Dome. While San Miguel once again got a dose of good old NSD late in the fourth period, the Beermen were dominant almost throughout, leading by as many as 23 points. The shock loss to the Dyip didn’t necessarily serve as a wake up call for San Miguel according to forward Christian Standhardinger. It’s just that when the Beermen are playing at least just near to their full potential, they’re almost pretty impossible to stop. They played well enough Sunday and they took down one of their chief contenders to the title. “I don’t know about a wake up call,” Standhardinger, who led all scorers with 26 points, said after the game. “I’m just happy we played good today and we played hard. When we play hard, it’s hard to beat us,” he added. Now missing Alex Cabagnot and Terrence Romeo to injury, the Beermen still had more than enough star power to dominate. And when the remaining stars, which included him with guards Chris Ross and Marcio Lassiter, found their mark against the Gin Kings... well the result speaks for itself. “It was good, as you saw, everyone played hard,” Standhardinger said. “Like I said, when we go hard, it’s hard to stop us. But we do have to go hard everytime andd we have to adjust and sacrifice for the team,” he added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

Chris Ross finds inner fire to light up scoreboard for Beermen

MANILA, Philippines---Looking flat out devastated when he left Cuneta Astrodome following their opening game against Columbian, Chris Ross had this fire in his eyes when he took on crowd darlings Barangay Ginebra. That couldn't be more evident when his sights aimed for the bucket in the third period of the game. Ross, only five points in the first two frames, waxed hot for 12 more that quarter to help the Beermen erect a comfortable lead heading into the stretch. "I knew I had to be a little more aggressive because Alex and Terrence were out," Ross told the press after San Miguel's 99-91 victory over Ginebra in Sunday's nightcap. "I just wanted to get going offensively and m...Keep on reading: Chris Ross finds inner fire to light up scoreboard for Beermen.....»»

San Miguel calls out Alaska’s Alex Compton for ‘kawawa ang liga’ remark

MANILA, Philippines---San Miguel cried foul over what it called "unnecessary remarks" by Alaska Aces head coach Alex Compton regarding the Beermen's recruits over the past years. Compton, whose Aces lost three championship series to the Beermen since 2014, said San Miguel's acquisition of three-time scoring champion Terrence Romeo put all the other teams at a disadvantage. "There was San Miguel for three finals, and June Mar Fajardo was always an issue," said Compton in a previous Inquirer report. "Then they added Christian [Standhardinger] and now they added Terrence [Romeo]. Kawawa ang liga."

DETROIT (AP) — Blake Griffin scored 30 points to lead the Detroit Pistons to a 120-115 overtime victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Andre Drummond added 14 points and 21 rebounds for the Pistons, who won for the third time in 11 games. Detroit had six players with at least 13 points. Nikola Vucevic and Terrence Ross each scored 24 points for Orlando, which had won two in a row after a four-game losing streak.

Augustin followed with a layup to put Orlando ahead, and the teams went scoreless on their next possessions.

Balanced Bullpups sweep Sotto-led Eaglets in UAAP Jrs. eliminations

STANDINGS NU 7-1 FEU-Diliman 6-2 Ateneo 5-3 Adamson 5-3 UST 4-4 DLSZ 3-5 UE 1-7 UPIS 1-7 Yet again, Carl Tamayo came up big for Nazareth School of National University in its heavyweight bout against Ateneo de Manila High School in the UAAP 81 Juniors Basketball Tournament. Tamayo’s basket and bonus quelled the Blue Eaglets’ late uprising and carried the Bullpups to a hard fought 78-71 decision on Sunday at the Filoil Flying V Centre. The versatile big man only had seven points to go along with nine rebounds, but it was his offensive board and ensuing short stab that re-increased his team’s slim one-point margin into a 73-69 lead. “Good thing he converted it kasi he was in and out kanina,” head coach Goldwin Monteverde said post-game. Still, the defending champions had 46.3 ticks to go and Forthsky Padrigao’s scoop shot was able to pull them within two points. It was at that point, however, that Ernest Felicilda’s steady hands from the line joined forces with a stout defense to put the game away for NU. Felicilda wound up with 14 points, four coming from the free throw line in the last 27 seconds, on top of six assists, five rebounds, and four steals. Gerry Abadiano and Terrence Fortea also added 16 points apiece as the Bullpups started the second round by downing Ateneo – the same story from how they finished the first round. Now at 7-1, they have also widened the distance between them and now second-running Far Eastern University-Diliman. Nonetheless, coach Gold said they haven’t won anything just yet. “It’s just part of the war. We still have six games to go in the eliminations and ang importante ngayon, our next game,” he said. Sotto paced the Blue Eaglets with 24 points, 18 rebounds, five assists, and three blocks. He was well-defended in the endgame, however, and saw his side fall to their rivals for the second straight time. In the day’s other game, the University of the Philippines Integrated School finally got a taste of victory after downing De La Salle Zobel, 64-56. Rookie Allen Torres scored 22 points, including a pair of booming threes inside the last five minutes, while graduating guard Polo Labao did it all with 18 markers, nine rebounds, six assists, and five steals to make sure the Junior Maroons improved to 1-7. On the other hand, the Junior Archers dropped to 3-5 following the shock loss.

Terrence gonna Terrence? NU s Fortea believes his shot will drop sooner than later

Terrence Fortea shares the same name with Terrence Romeo. At the same time, Terrence Fortea shares the same game with Terrence Romeo. A scintillating scorer who gets many of his points after dances he does with his opponents, the Nazareth School of National University Bullpup very much deserves to have his name said in the same breath as that of the San Miguel Beerman. After all, super scorer Terrence Fortea was a key cog in the Bullpups last championship in 2016 and continues to be a key cog as well in their continued contention after. In the ongoing UAAP 81 Juniors, though, the shots have not been falling for the 5-foot-10 guard – not the way they usually do, at the very least. Fortea has been averaging a team-best 14.4 points per game, but is only shooting 28 percent from the field. More pointedly, he has been struggling both from outside the arc (22-of-82) and inside the arc (13-of-43). Nonetheless, the Bullpups’ coaches only want him to keep playing his game. “Sabi sa akin nila coach na wag mawawala kumpyansa ko. ‘Di porket ‘di sumu-shoot, wala na. Dapat kada game, next play lang parati,” he said. Indeed, he did just that as in their most recent outing, a triumph over defending champion Ateneo de Manila High School, the 18-year-old sprinkled 15 shots throughout the game and made good on five. No doubt, there’s much room for his shot to improve, but in the meantime, Fortea knows full well there’s much more he can do for his team. “Lagi akong nire-remind nila coach na yung mga kalaban, ‘di lang isa gagawin sa akin. Kailangan, i-counter ko lang mga ginagawa nila mapa-score man yun o mapapasa,” he said. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
