    Franz Pumaren sets to call the shots for GlobalPort


    GLOBALPORT will have a new coach when it kicks off its PBA Philippine Cup campaign Friday.

    Team consultant Franz Pumaren starts calling the shots for the Batang Pier when they debut against the Mahnidra Floodbusters at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

    No less than team owner and current league chairman Mikee Romero broke the news when he announced on social media about Pumaren being formally named as the team's new head coach before they play their first game in the all-Filipino conference.

    Former coach Johnedel Cardel will slide down as one of Pumaren's deputies.

    Josh Urbiztondo signs with GlobalPort, Karl Dehesa placed on reserved list

    GLOBALPORT added depth and experience to its already formidable backcourt by formally signing unrestricted free agent Josh Urbiztondo in time for the Batang Pier’s PBA Philippine Cup game against Barangay Ginebra on Saturday.

    SPIN.ph learned Urbiztondo was officially inserted in the team’s regular roster 24 hours before the 6:45 p.m. encounter at the Smart Araneta Coliseum as per league rules.

    The Batang Pier relegated Karl Dehesa to the reserve/injury list since adding Urbiztondo meant having a sixth Fil-Am player to their roster. Only five Fil-Ams are allowed on the active roster per team.

    Aside from Urbiztondo, other Fil-Ams in Globalport’s lineup are Stanley Pringle, Mike Cortez, Mick Pennisi, and Anthony Semerad.

    Terrence Romeo admits he’s ‘back to zero’ after bout with typhoid fever

    Tuesday afternoon was an unusual day for GlobalPort’s high-scoring guard Terrence Romeo.

    First, he was reporting for practice for the Batang Pier for the first time in a week.

    No, the 5-foot-10 former UAAP MVP isn’t coming from an extended vacation. But the sweet-shooting GlobalPort gunner is just coming off a bout with typhoid fever, which forced him to miss the team’s Commissioner’s Cup debut against Alaska over the weekend.

    No wonder, Romeo, a gym rat who spends much of his time working on his outside shooting, headed straight to the team’s dugout at the Gatorade Hoops Center, shortly after his first practice with the Batang Pier on Tuesday.

    “Back to zero yung stamina ko, tapos yung rhythm ko kinukuha ko pa,” Romeo confided to FOX Sports.

    The cat-quick guard said his bout with typhoid fever was due to his penchant for eating street foods.

    “Nagdudumi nang madalas tapos hinang hina na ako,” shared the two-time PBA Scoring champion, who was admitted for several days at the FEU-NRMF hospital in Quezon City. “Iwas na muna talaga ako sa street foods.”

    Terrence Romeo returns to give GlobalPort a timely boost in Lanao game against Star

    GlobalPort gets a shot in the arm as Terrence Romeo is set to make his debut in the team's matchup against Star on Saturday when the PBA Commissioner's Cup goes on the road in Tubod, Lanao del Norte.

    After missing the team's conference debut last Saturday due to an undisclosed illness that left him confined in a hospital, Romeo reunites with backcourt partner Stanley Pringle against the Hotshots in the Petron Saturday Special at 5 p.m. at the Mindanao Civic Center gym.

    Batang Pier coach Franz Pumaren confirmed his prized ward is set to make his return.

    "Yes, he'll play tomorrow, but will try to manage his minutes," Pumaren said in a text message on Friday night.
