CJ Perez Steals The Show in Romeo-less San Miguel’s Nail-biting Victory

**San Miguel Overcomes Ginebra Despite Romeo’s Absence**

In the heated opener of the PBA Commissioner’s Cup semifinals, San Miguel edged out Barangay Ginebra with a nail-biting 92-90 victory. The Beermen’s triumph came without the prowess of Terrence Romeo, sidelined by a left ankle sprain from practice. His return remains in suspense as doctors assess his condition. Nevertheless, the void was filled by the dominant CJ Perez, who racked up an impressive 26 points, fortified by five rebounds and three assists.

Coach Jorge Gallent remains optimistic about Romeo’s quick return, conceding his strategic absence was felt despite the win. San Miguel’s resilience shone through as June Mar Fajardo bolstered the effort with 18 points and nine boards. As both teams gear up for a rematch at the Mall of Asia Arena, San Miguel stands resolute to maintain their stride and seek redemption for last season’s Governors’ Cup loss. Stay tuned as the series unfolds and San Miguel possibly welcomes back Romeo’s zeal on the court.
