Stanley Pringle can’t wait to share the court again with Globalport teammate and national team star Terrence Romeo.

Romeo and Pringle were a handful for opposing teams in leading the Batang Pier backcourt and the Rookie of the Year is looking forward to continue what he and Romeo had started.

“I’m really looking forward to teaming up with him again,” said Pringle, whose strained MCL, which bothered him last season, is already a thing of the past.

“I’ve been playing alongside him all year and Gilas is just giving him more confidence and he’s still hungry to improve,” the 6-foot-1 Pringle said.

Pringle and Romeo will be joined by a slew of guards in rookies Roi Sumang and Ryan Wetherell and free agent pickup Philip Paniamogan to form an intriguing guard rotation for Globalport in the coming season which opens next month.

“You need many guards. You need a point guard, a back-up guard, a two guard, and a back-up two guard. I think we have as much guards as any teams too,” he said.

The 28-year-old Pringle hopes this year will be Globalport’s time to take the next leap.

“I think we need to improve our team defense and our team strategies,” said Pringle. “We need to improve our chemistry, be more fluid, and keep trying get farther in the playoffs.”
