MANILA--Junemar Fajardo could be on his way to win yet another Best Player of the Conference award.
In a copy of the stats from the PBA Philippine Cup eliminations to the semifinals obtained by Dugout Philippines on Thursday, the six-foot-10 behemoth of finalist San Miguel got 43.4 statistical points, way ahead of GlobalPort's Terrence Romeo, who is second at 40.2.
Fajardo's league-leading 15.2 rebounds and 2.4 blocks an outing through 19 games were enough to put him in front of Romeo, who is the conference's best scorer at 28.2 points a night through 13 matches.
Alaska's Calvin Abueva is third with 31.9 SP's behind a solid all-around performance of 16.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 blocks, and 1.4 steals a game.
Fajardo's fellow Beermen Arwind Santos and Alex Cabagnot round up the Top 5 with Santos (31.79) just ahead of Cabagnot (31.76) by 0.03 SP.
Japeth Aguilar is the lone member of the Top 10 from the other finalist, Ginebra, ranking sixth with 31.6 SP's.
