In the second quarter, when the Beermen began to pull away and ultimately won by as many as 27 points, Romeo scored 22 points off the bench. The FiberXers mounted a late comeback, but his teammates held off their challenge to clinch the whitewash of the greatest shows.

Terrence Romeo led the scoring for the Beermen with 22 points as he spearheaded their breakout, while import Devon Scott added a double-double with 20 points, 14 rebounds, and 5 assists.

The victory set up a titanic semifinal matchup between San Miguel and top-seeded visiting team Bay Area, which will begin on Wednesday at the Philsports Arena.

The FiberXers were able to rally and cut the deficit to eight points in the fourth quarter before maintaining their composure to claim the victory, but San Miguel assistant coach Jorge Gallent lamented the Beermen’s performance in that period.

In the victory for San Miguel, Devon Scott had 20 points and 14 rebounds whereas June Mar Fajardo had 18 points and 18 rebounds.

For the FiberXers, who finished their conference with a four-game losing streak after winning seven straight games, Jeron Teng had 25 points and 10 rebounds, while Quincy Miller had 24 points.

Simon Enciso scored 16 points, had seven assists, and grabbed four rebounds for the Beermen in their sixth straight victory. Jericho Cruz added 15 points, and CJ Perez had 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and two steals.

For San Miguel, Rodney Brondial and Marcio Lassiter each added nine and eight points.

After dominating in the middle of the relegation round with a conference-best seven straight victories, the FiberXers’ demise was unfortunate.

However, Miller’s benching in a loss to NorthPort that ended the Converge streak served as a turning point for the inexperienced franchise as it finished the tournament with four straight defeats.
