Terrence Romeo played through pain but the GlobalPort guard won’t use it as an excuse for his poor showing in Batang Pier’s loss to the San Miguel Beermen Saturday night in Davao.
“Sobrang sore ng buong katawan ko. Di ko pwedeng sabihing excuse yun, pero feeling ko, sobrang bagal ko,” said Romeo after scoring only five points in a 97-86 defeat.
Romeo’s nonstop play from GlobalPort to Gilas Pilipinas has finally taken a toll on him that has affected his game.
“Ilang araw pa lang ako nakapagpractice so kinakapa ko pa kung pano ako makakasabay sa mga teammates ko,” he said.
But being the leader that he is, Romeo charged the loss to himself while also vowing to what is expected of him the next time GlobalPort hits the court.
“Ina-admit kong sa akin yun,” Romeo said.
“Gagawin ko na lang yung best ko para makapag-adjust ng mabilis kasi galing ako sa tuloy-tuloy na games. Wala akong magagawa. Di ako nag-e-expect ng sobrang ganda na resulta. Ang akin lang, we improve at pagbutihin yung next na mga games namin.”
