GLOBALPORT BATANG PIER over TROPANG TNT, 108-101
Box Scores. 

The GlobalPort Batang Pier took care of business against an import-less Tropang TNT side, 108-101, to notch a second win in the 2016 Oppo PBA Commissioner’s Cup on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Terrence Romeo scored 33 points, including four three-pointers, to lead GlobalPort. He only shot 9-for-21 (42 percent) from the field but went 11-for-12 (91 percent) from the free throw line.

Stanley Pringle added 14 points, five rebounds, and five assists, while rookie Roi Sumang added 11 points. The two guards combined for seven three-pointers as the Batang Pier connected on 15 attempts from beyond the arc.




Returning import Calvin Warner, playing his first game as a replacement for Brian Williams, shot only 33 percent from the field but finished with a double-double of 11 points and 21 rebounds.

TNT played without an import as they had yet to find a replacement for Ivan Johnson, who was suspended for the rest of the season. They also missed the services of Kelly Williams, who sat out the game with an injury.

Jayson Castro scored 25 points while Mo Tautuaa, the No. 1 pick in the 2015 PBA Draft, added 21 points and seven rebounds. Veteran Danny Seigle had a vintage performance with 16 points.

Terrence Romeo (GLO) - 33pts, 4rebs, 3asts, 1stl, 4 triples.
