It didn’t take long for Terrence Romeo to rediscover his shooting stroke.

Struggling in GlobalPort’s season opener in Davao, the spitfire guard atoned for his woeful performance and lit up Star with 20 points.


“Medyo gigil ako kasi ito lang yung time na nakapag-prepare ako for five days. Mas naging aggressive ako. Sa Davao, one day practice lang ang meron ako kaya di ko alam kung saan ako huhugot ng lakas,” he said.

With a busy offseason highlighted by his stint with Gilas Pilipinas, Romeo shared he learned a lot from playing with and against Asia’s best players.


Romeo showed he can adjust his game from being primary scorer to a pass-first player in his first international competition.

But as part of the Batang Pier, the former UAAP MVP said he has to be the scorer that he is with Stanley Pringle as the team’s top playmaker.

“Sa FIBA, pass-first at kailangan mag-execute ng play. Pero dito, kailangan din ako ng team maging aggressive sa offense,” he said.

But Romeo added that it will also depend on the situation.

“Depende rin. Di ako pwedeng maging pass-first kung pass-first din si Stanley (Pringle) at Kuya Joseph (Yeo). Magiging tentative kaming lahat at magugulo yung team. Kung mainit, bakit hindi ituloy-tuloy? Kung sino ang maganda ang pine-perform, nakakaputok sa offense doon pupunta ang bola. Kung kailangan mas maging volume shooter, pwede kong ibalik yun anytime.

Whatever the case may be, Romeo will do anything to help his team win.

“Ang mahalaga manalo yung team,” the 23-year-old Romeo said.


“Kaya namin na mapuntahan yung napuntahan namin last conference which is sa top four. As long as one page kami lahat, kaya namin sumabay kahit kaninong team.”
