Arwind Santos wasn’t surprised to see Terrence Romeo losses his temper during the 4th quarter of Game Two of the San Miguel Beermen’s 2019 PBA Philippine Cup Finals series against the Magnolia Hotshots last Friday.

Romeo was ejected with 6:23 to go in the final frame with San Miguel ahead big, 96-80. The flamboyant scorer incurred two straight technical fouls after disrespectfully addressed lead official Peter Balao.

However, Santos is hoping that Romeo can learn to keep his composure during heated moments of the game.

“Ang problema kay Terrence pagka umuusok yung ilong, pati tenga umuusok eh, ‘di nakakarinig minsan,” Santos rued.

“Kaya kanina sinabihan ko siya, tapos bumalik pa siya sa referee. Nagsalita siya ng ano, narinig pa ng referee. Kung pwede nga lang takpan ko yung bibig niya, pero ‘di talaga eh, narinig na ng referee. Wala na ‘ko nagawa.”

Now, Santos hopes that the 27-year-old scorer won’t incur a suspension for his actions since he knows Romeo is a big boost to the Beermen. Romeo had 13 points and two rebounds in Game Two.

“Sana wala siyang suspension, si Terrence malaking bagay pa rin yan, makakatulong pa rin sa team yan.”
