MANILA--LA Tenorio showed why he is the "Gin-eral".

Tenorio put up impressive stats this past week, which was enough for him to be named the Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week on Wednesday.

Tenorio had a double-double of 16 points and 10 assists to lead the Barangay's offense in a 134-107 rout of Columbian Dyip last Wednesday.
