Terrence Romeo dedicates game to ‘best friends’ and former TNT teammates Jericho Cruz, RR Garcia
MANILA, Philippines—San Miguel Beer guard Terrence Romeo had his family to thank following his performance in Game 1 of the PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals against TNT on Saturday.
He also cryptically dedicated his game to his former TNT teammates RR Garcia and Jericho Cruz during the post-game interview after he was adjudged as the Best Player of the Game.
“Binabati ko rin Jericho Cruz at tsaka si RR Garcia. Para sa inyong dalawa ‘to mga ‘tol,” Romeo told ESPN5’s Selina Dagdag during a TV interview.
(I also want to greet Jericho Cruz and RR Garcia. This one is for you both brothers.)
Cruz is currently in the injury list while Garcia was let go by the KaTropa in the middle of the conference.
Romeo had 15 points off the bench in his first game against TNT since his trade to San Miguel last December following a fallout.
When asked why he offered his game to Cruz and Garcia, Romeo simply said the two are his “best friends.”
The 27-year-old Romeo also said the best-of-three series against TNT is just like any other game to him and the matchup is about the Beermen and KaTropa and not about himself and his former squad.
