AT least four imports who had previously played in the PBA will be around for another tour of duty in the Commissioner’s Cup that will blast off on Feb.10.

These are  Rob Dozier of Alaska, Othyus Jeffers of Barangay Ginebra and Al Thornton NLEX and Ivan Johnson of Talk ‘N Text.

Talk ‘N Text’s team representative Patrick ‘Pato’ Gregorio  confirmed that the 6-foot-8 Johnson, who arrived yesterday morning, will be at the forefront of the Tropang Texters’ title-retention drive in the midseason conference they won last season with Johnson  as their import.

Semifinals loss still a valuable experience for Terrence Romeo, GlobalPort

January 14, 2016

"Di namin napuntahan 'yung gusto naming ma-accomplish pero masaya pa rin kami dahil sa narating ng team," said star guard Terrence Romeo. "At least, nagawa namin 'yung best makapasok ng semis at marami kaming natutunan."...

Coach Pido: Batang Pier need miracle

January 12, 2016

PIDO Jarencio is a devout Catholic and believes in miracles.

He also believes that with the way Alaska has dominated his GlobalPort side in the last three games of their Smart Bro-PBA Philippine Cup Final Four series, something of that sort is the only chance they have left.

“I will be waiting for a miracle; I believe in it,” Jarencio told the Inquirer over the phone yesterday while viewing tapes of the 84-109 shellacking his Batang Pier took at the hands of the Aces on Sunday....
