QUEZON CITY—As highly anticipated, Christian Standhardinger has been named the Davco-PBA Governors' Cup Best Player of the Conference.

The Ginebra big man received the award on Sunday night at the Smart Araneta Coliseum prior to Game 4 of the championship series against TNT.

Standhardinger, who was the leader in statistical points up to the semifinals, won the BPC plum in runaway style as he also topped the votes from the reporters and the players.

Standhardinger was almost the unanimous choice by the media, garnering 36 of the 37 possible first-place votes for 506 points, while also topping the player votes with 70 points on top of his 534 statistical points to finish with 1,110 points.

The Tropang Giga's RR Pogoy finished second with 672 points as he got a huge majority of the second-place votes from the media and the second-most first-place votes from the players.

San Miguel's CJ Perez came in third with 561 points, while Ginebra's Scottie Thompson and Jamie Malonzo finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Meanwhile, TNT's Rondae Hollis-Jefferson won the Coins.ph PBA Governors' Cup Best Import award.

The former NBA veteran, who ruled the stats race among foreign recruits, topped the media votes too to beat Ginebra's Justin Brownlee for the plum.

Hollis-Jefferson tallied 619 statistical points, 457 media vote points behind 32 first-place votes, and 71 player vote points for a total of 1,147 points.

Brownlee, on the other hand, finished with 966 points behind 570 SPs, 320 media points, and 76 player vote points.

The two PBA Governors' Cup finalists were tied in the first-place votes for players with 13 each, but Brownlee got the player vote nod due to having more second-place votes.

San Miguel's Cameron Clark finished third with 610 points, while Meralco's KJ McDaniels came in fourth with 573.
