TNT KaTropa bounced back from a sorry defeat to repulse Phoenix Petroleum, 110-103, for its third win in the PBA Governors’ Cup Friday at Smart Araneta Coliseum.

The Texters moved a game out of .500 and improved to 3-2 as they redeemed themselves after a humiliating 104-73 defeat to Rain or Shine.

Roger Pogoy gave TNT a late-game buffer after his inside bank shot put the KaTropa up 107-101 with 1:46 left in the game and import Glen Rice Jr. secured the victory by picking off Brandon Brown’s pass at the 40-second mark.

Rice not only willed TNT to victory with his 38-point, 9-rebound, 5-assist line, he also bounced back from his subpar PBA debut.

“We went to this game with the hope of Glen playing a lot better than he played the last game, and today he did,” said TNT head coach Nash Racela.

In the second game, San Miguel Beer rallied to a 115-112 victory over GlobalPort.

Kelly Williams finished with 18 points to complement Rice’s scoring while Ranidel de Ocampo added 14.

Pogoy and Jayson Castro also finished in twin digits with 13 and 11 points, respectively.
