PUERTO, PRINCESA, Philippines—Globalport scoring sensation Terrence Romeo caught fire late and finished with 18 points to bring home the three-point shootout title in the 2015 PBA All-Star Game.

After a slow start in the final round, the 22-year-old Romeo started connecting on his shots by the fourth rack to finish strong and best veterans James Yap of Purefoods and JC Intal of Barako Bull.
