PBA: Pringle drops 50 points as Global makes playoff push
Pringle's 50 points is the most since Asi Taulava scored 51 for Talk 'N Text in the 2004 Fiesta Conference. Taulava was the last local to break the 50-point barrier.

Stanley Pringle just had the best scoring performance by a local in 14 years.

Pringle scored a career-high 50 points, leading Globalport to a big 133-115 win over Columbian in the 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Wednesday at the Big Dome.

Stanley set his new career high of 37 points after three quarters. He added another 13 in the fourth to make a run for 50. His last score was a breakaway slam in the final minute.

Pringle's 50 points is the most since Asi Taulava scored 51 for Talk 'N Text in the 2004 Fiesta Conference. Taulava was the last local to break the 50-point barrier.

"Tonight is Stanley's show. Nine three points tapos 50 points, para ako lang nung college ah," head coach Pido Jarencio said.

"Anyway, it's all about Stanley. Sabi ko nga, hindi tayo pwede matalo. If we want to go to the playoffs, kailangan na namin manalo," he added.

Globalport needed all 50 of Stanley Pringle's points to break away from the pesky Dyip as it wasn't until the fourth period until they truly put the game on ice.

With the win, the Batang Pier improved to 5-5, giving themselves a chance to make the quarterfinals outright with another win.

After Pringle, import Malcolm White scored 28 points on top of 14 rebounds while Jonathan Grey added 16.

Columbian, who dropped to 4-7 and is likely out of the playoffs, got at least 20 points from four different players but it wasn't enough.

Import John Fields led the way with 26 points while Eric Camson added 24. Rashawn McCarthy and Jerramy King finised with 21 each.

 

The Scores:

 

GLOBALPORT 133 — Pringle 50, White 28, Grey 16, Anthony 12, Tautuaa 8, Guinto 5, Esoinas 4, Taha 4, Elorde 3, Javelona 3, Teng 0.

COLUMBIAN 115 — Fields 26, Camson 24, King 21, McCarthy 21, Khobuntin 11, Celda 5, Cahilig 3, Ababou 2, Tubid 2, Corpuz 0, Escoto 0.

 

Quarters: 25-29, 66-56, 96-88, 133-115.
