MANILA, Philippines—San Miguel Beer guard Terrence Romeo and his former team TNT had a well-documented fallout that it’s no secret the two sides have bad blood between each other.

With Beermen and the KaTropa sharing long history as rivals, it didn’t come as a surprise that for several instances in their do-or-die Game 3 on Wednesday, the players-one way or another-got into each others’ heads.

Romeo and ex-teammate Roger Pogoy nearly reached their boiling point late in the first quarter that they had to be separated to keep the situation from escalating.


The two, who stared down each other, downplayed the incident as expected.

“Wala sakin yun, niloloko ko lang si Pogoy,” said Romeo, who instigated the situation after invading Pogoy’s space after scoring on a layup despite being fouled by his former Gilas teammate.

(That’s nothing to me. I was just messing with Pogoy.)


“Wala. Kulitan lang yung kay Terrence. Alam mo naman yun makulit,” Pogoy told reporters.

(It’s nothing. We were just fooling around. We all know Terrence, he’s playful.)


Romeo, who was traded to the Beermen in the offseason four months ago, ended up having the last laugh after scoring 14 points to help his team steamroll the KaTropa, 96-86, and secure a semifinals seat.

Pogoy led TNT with 16 points that went with five rebounds and a block.
