Terrence Romeo of the Philippine team remains unrepentant with his team's involvement over last night's melee. MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) - Pro basketball star Terrence Romeo reportedly figured in a fistfight outside a bar in Quezon City early Thursday morning, July 12, just hours after his TNT KaTropa lost to San Miguel Beer in the PBA quarterfinals. Basketball Australia engaged legal advice after the incident as well as speaking to the Philippines Basketball association, team management and the club sides of the Boomers players.
It was in the 2014-15 PBA season that Romeo's career really took off as he averaged 19.9 points and 2.1 triples and won the Most Improved Player Award. Our players are fine (physically) … but really it's the mental health of our players that we Terrence Romeo Issue are absolutely concerned about.
Moore said the bans could seem light compared to those dished out the AFL or NRL but with FIBA qualifying games only played every three months, they were lengthy. Romeo's injury was the latest in the spate of bad break GlobalPort had in the Oppo-PBA Commissioner's Cup.
After Kickert's elbow, the vision of the incident shows Castro and Blatche charging at him, before multiple Filipino bench players also approached the big-man. Moore said he had been in close contact with team management all night, the local federation and FIBA.
