Jarencio wants Batang Pier to not rely too much on Pringle, Romeo

They have to help each other,” Jarencio said in Filipino on the heels of the Batang Pier’s 104-115 defeat to NLEX.ADVERTISEMENT Jarencio didn’t deny that he was dismayed with how bad GlobalPort’s defense was in the game.“This team is built to be 70 percent defense. But in this game, it was the opposite, we were 70 percent offense, 30 percent defense.”Jarencio, though, feels that the Batang Pier were just a few breaks away from nabbing the victory, but committed costly miscues in the end game.“We had bad breaks, two consecutive turnovers, plus Larry (Fonacier) made a big three-point shot when we went zone. That was when they were able to pullaway. We’re not pointing fingers at anybody, but that’s what they call the breaks of the game,” he said.Despite the defeat, Jarencio is charging the loss to experience as he expects his wards to come out stronger in their next game against Ginebra on January 7.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH ‘Excited’ Terrence Romeo out to cherish first PBA finals appearance PLAY LIST 01:30’Excited’ Terrence Romeo out to cherish first PBA finals appearance00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Read Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

He’s really a scorer, especially when Terrence is there because they’re our 1-2 punch,” he said.Aside from Pringle, only Sean Anthony (19 points) and Jonathan Grey (13 points) were able to notch double-digits in scoring, a big no-no especially with the Road Warriors playing collectively. “It’s the first game of the season. I think it’s just the opening jitters. Maybe, we need to do a lot of adjustments, a lot of things to fix, but as long as the players are there helping each other and sticking together, it’s ok with me. I’m still positive,” he said.
