While still not at 100 percent, Romeo Travis is starting to regain his form in the 2019 PBA Governors’ Cup following an ankle injury earlier in the tournament.
Sunday against Columbian, the former Best Import led the defending champion Hotshots to a crucial victory by scoring 28 points to go along with eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two blocks.
The win comes up big as Magnolia overtook Columbian in the team standings for 6th place.
“It was a big win for us. It’s like two wins because they were one place ahead of us in the standings and the had one more win than us,” Travis said.
“It was like two wins for us, it was very important. I’m glad we came out and played with intensity and aggression,” he added.
The win over the Dyip snapped the Hotshots’ three-game slide and with Magnolia not set to play another game for almost two weeks, it gives Travis some time to continue to recover.
It’s pretty much a perfect Sunday for him and the Hotshots.
“I need all the rest I can get you know. I’m still not at 100 percent, trying to get my ankle right. It’s just the timing that’s really what I need to get back right,” Travis said.
“It’s been hard for me to try to fight through injury and come back. It’s been difficult but I don’t make excuses, I’m just trying to get back and help my team win,” he added.
