Stanley Pringle didn’t guarantee a bounce back win for GlobalPort in Game 5, but the second-year guard is sure of one thing: The Batang Pier are far from giving up.

“We can still come back and we’re still going to fight,” Pringle told reporters after GlobalPort got crushed by Alaska, 109-84, in Game 4 of their best-of-seven semifinals series on Sunday night.

Pringle said the Aces’ playoff experience is a “big factor” to winning the last three games of the series after dropping Game 1, but it’s not the only thing that has had GlobalPort facing such a tall order at this point.

“Past couple of games, we’ve been shooting bad, and everybody said they’re coming and they’re going to shoot their shots,” Pringle said. “They’re playing really good defense, but it’s definitely the shooting, we’ve been hitting the whole year and they’re sagging off and we’re not just hitting it right now.”

FEATURED STORIES

Pringle had 16 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in a game-high 37 minutes of action, but he knows he could’ve contributed more had he made the Aces pay by leaving him open with a better shooting percentage than going 6-of-18 from the field.

The Batang Pier shot a decent 42% from the field, but went just 9-of-37 from the outside with Pringle and Terrence Romeo combining for only 6-of-20 from that range.

The last three games, the GlobalPort has only shot 26% (25-of-95) from the 3-Point area.

“If we hit shots, it’s going to be a different ball game.”
