Terrence Romeo kept his head high even though San Miguel failed to re-claim the All-Filipino crown after falling into the hands of TNT in the 2021 PBA Philippine Cup.
After all, the Beermen had to face numerous challenges prior to the semi-bubble conference in Bacolor, Pampanga.
“Alam ko at alam naming lahat na binigay namin ‘yung best namin sa conference na ‘to,” said Romeo in one of his Instagram stories.
“Maraming nangyari sa aming mga players.” he added.
The three-time league scoring champion sustained multiple injuries that limited him to only 14 games this conference. Same goes for Alex Cabagnot, who just played 13 games for the Leo Austria-mentored squad.
Also prior to the conference resumption in Pampanga, June Mar Fajardo suffered a heavy loss as his mother Marites passed away due to COVID-19.
The 27-time PBA Champs showed their resilience in the face of adversity and were to able to advance to the semifinals despite all the obstacles they had to overcome.
