MANILA--As the Philippine Basketball Association takes a Halloween break, the media covering the league handed Chris Standhardinger the Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award.
The San Miguel forward went for a 20-20 against NorthPort on Wednesday night and came close to another against Rain Or Shine three nights later.
The said performances helped the Beermen snatch a spot in the Governors' Cup quarterfinals despite an uncharacteristic 2-4 start.
Standhardinger beat teammate Alex Cabagnot, Phoenix's Calvin Abueva, NLEX’s JR Quinahan, Blackwater’s Mac Belo, and Ginebra’s Greg Slaughter and Sol Mercado for the weekly citation.
