From ABL to PBA, Banchero enjoys playing against Pringle

ANTIPOLO — Some things never change.

For Chris Banchero, facing Stanley Pringle every conference always gets him hyped as he welcomes the challenge of defending the speedy guard.

“I’ve been playing against him for seven years now. He’s a hell of a player. You need to be at your best when you’re guarding him,” said Banchero after Alaska’s 105-98 overtime victory over GlobalPort on Sunday.

From their days in the ASEAN Basketball League, where Pringle played for the Indonesia Warriors while Banchero was with the San Miguel Beermen, to now in the PBA, the Fil-Italian guard bared that he never gets tired with the familiar matchup.

“I believe he brings out the best in everybody. He’s very, very shifty when he gets to the basket and he can shoot the ball so you have to be at your best when you’re guarding him,” he said.
