Terrence Romeo's TNT debut was by no means sensational.

The Bro shot bricks Sunday, connecting on only 30 percent of his attempts for 11 points in a win against Globalport. He also had five turnovers, three in succession late in the fourth period.

However, despite Romeo's rather lackluster performance, KaTropa head coach Nash Racela is not about to drop the hammer on his new star guard.

"It's acceptable. Acceptable," Racela said when asked about Terrence's debut.

Coach Nash has some patience with Romeo mainly because it was only Terrence's third official game this season following injury.

Racela had his expectations set for Terrence's game against the Batang Pier and it seemed like Romeo met all of them.

"Again, this is just Terrence's [third] game, I think, coming from semi-retirement, 'di ba? He was out for a full conference," Racela said.

"So obviously, if you really look at him, he's not yet in good playing shape, his timing is kinda off. But he did what we expected him to do in this game," he added.
