WATCH: Gilas’ Romeo erupts for 22 points in 2nd quarter vs Korea
(philstar.com) - August 17, 2017 - 7:14am

MANILA, Philippines — The Korean curse is still alive. But one Filipino player seemed not affected by it.

FIBA on Thursday tweeted a highlight reel of Gilas Pilipinas' very own Terrence Romeo in their FIBA Asia Cup knockout quarterfinal game against South Korea Wednesday night.

In a performance for the ages, Romeo was unstoppable in the second quarter and exploded for 22 points to keep Gilas within striking distance.

The fiery guard went 8-for-10 from the field, hitting six shots from beyond the rainbow line.

His effort was all for naught as the Philippines suffered a 86-118 defeat to their archrivals to end their medal hopes.
