He beat out Star teammate Peter June Simon, Meralco young guard Baser Amer and Jared Dillinger, Rain or Shine sophomore point guard Maverick Ahanmishi, Mahindra’s Ryan Arana, Alaska rookie forward Carl Cruz and TNT’s Jayson Castro for the weekly citation.

The Hotshots, along with the Meralco Bolts, Alaska Aces and defending champion Rain or Shine Elasto Painters are the unbeaten teams so far in this conference.
