The Return of Terrence Romeo: A Boost for (SMB) San Miguel’s Playoff Hopes
JUNE Terrence Romeo replaced the departing Mar Fajardo.
San Miguel is sending an underpowered squad to the PBA Governors’ Cup playoffs, but the Beermen strengthened their hand by activating Romeo in the dying moments of the elimination round.
Romeo, the three-time scoring champion of the league, returned to action in the Beermen’s 120-106 victory over NLEX, though it was clear that he still hadn’t fully recovered from the grade 2 hamstring strain that had kept him out of action for the first nine games of the tournament.
Romeo, a 30-year-old guard, failed to score in his first game back as coach Jorge Gallent tried to ease him into the game by playing him for only two minutes.
“My only concern is that he is safe and sound again. Everyone is relieved to have Terrence back, “declared San Miguel’s head coach. I can only say, “I pray he’s well enough to play again.”
After being out of action for over two months, Romeo admitted he has yet to get his usual timing. He had missed a portion of the Commissioner’s Cup due to a back injury.
“In contrast to my usual laro, it is quite noisy there. But gradually, hour by hour, I’ve been working out with her. “His words.
The injury, he says, is a tricky one.
It’s possible that he’ll be fine some of the time and that you’ll feel like you’re going crazy at other times, he said. However, we must wait until the next ma-kundisyon to continue.
Fajardo, 32, is out for the season after tearing his medial collateral ligament (MCL) during San Miguel’s run in Japan’s East Asia Super League (EASL) Champions Week. Romeo’s return comes at a good time for the team.
The six-time MVP will miss the rest of the season and likely the playoffs after being sidelined for six to eight weeks.
San Miguel Beer’s activation of Terrence Romeo is a much-needed boost for the team, particularly with June Mar Fajardo out for the rest of the season. Romeo’s return adds more depth and scoring power to the team’s lineup, and his teammates are excited to have him back. Despite not fully recovered yet, Romeo’s return is a positive sign for San Miguel’s chances in the PBA Governors’ Cup playoffs and could affect PBA betting odds. With the playoffs underway, it remains to be seen how Romeo’s contribution can help the Beermen in their quest for another championship title.
