Go USTe! (PBA Images)
Jeric Teng's PBA comeback is off to a good start.
Signed on Tuesday, the former King Tiger made immediate impact for Globalport on Wednesday, draining three triples for nine points on top of two rebounds and an assist in 10 and a half minutes of play.
The Batang Pier also won, making Teng's reunion with Pido Jarencio, his old college coach, all the more special.
"Siyempre yung excitement talaga na makabalik yun nga, matagal-tagal din ako nawala," Teng said.
"I never imagined that I will be playing again under coach Pido dahil I didn't even expect to get a call from them in the middle of the season. So siguro blessing na din and yun nga, I'm very happy playing under coach Pido," he added.
For Jarencio, the feeling is mutual.
"Si Jeric Teng, ang ganda ng balik dito," he said.
"Go Uste, go Uste. May gannong pang hugot eh," Jarencio added with a laugh.
