Welcome to our Governors' Cup card day! We will now give our grade to each player of all the teams. We will use the normal grading system of 50-100. 75 is the passing grade of course. Let us all welcome the participants coming from the four teams eliminated in the quarterfinals! My grade greatly depends on the performance of the player and in his success on doing his role in his team. So, let's get this rolling!
PHOENIX FUEL MASTERS 99 Phelps, Eugene 90 Urbiztondo, Josh 86 Torres, Norbert 85 Wilson, Willy 84 Buenafe, Ronjay 79 Baguio, Cyrus 77 Enciso, Simon 76 Lanete, Chico 75 Borboran, Mark 73 Cruz, Mark 72 Lee, Gwan Hee 71 Caperal, Prince 69 Wilson, John 67 Pennisi, Mick
The player who was nearest to the meaning of carrying a team was no other than Eugene Phelps. He was a monster throughout he Conference with his 36.4 points, 19.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game. Josh Urbiztondo was as flamboyant as ever with his role.
John Wilson and Mick Pennisi were given enough opportunity to find their groove from the outside but they failed to do that this conference. In total, they went 16/49 from the outside.
MAHINDRA ENFORCERS 92 Ramos, Aldrech 91 Yee, Mark 90 White, James 88 Canaleta, KG 81 Revilla, LA 80 Ballesteros, Jason 79 Taha, Paolo 78 Bagatsing, Hyram 78 Aguilar, Raymond 76 Guinto, Bradwyn 75 Agovida, Keith 74 Zandi, Iman 70 DiGregorio, Michael Vincent 63 Jaime, Chito 62 Elorde, Nico
James White the most effective player in the court but considering everything, Aldrech Ramos got the highest grade. He was a legit threat from the outside with his 39.3% from beyond the arc and he played intelligently in offense. Mark Yee continue to be the most underrated role player in the league with his versatility, hustle and defense.
Jaime Chito and Nico Elorde tried their best to be as helpful as possible in several minutes of playing time but they did not flourish.
NLEX ROAD WARRIORS 95 Lanete, Garvo 93 Walker, Henry 85 Arboleda, Harold 81 Villanueva, Jonas 81 Baracael, Mac 79 Khobuntin, Glen 79 Monfort, Emman 78 Taulava, Asi 77 Villanueva, Enrico 73 Anthony, Sean 70 Akl, Rodrigue 67 Alas, Kevin
This is basically the breakout conference of Garvo Lanete. Coach Boyet Fernandez' trust in him took dividends this conference with his 51.2% 3FG per game. With that his Offensive Rating jumped to 133.0. Henry Walker was magnificent as a scorer this conference.
Kevin Alas failed with his role as a starter this conference that he ended with -13.9 net rating. Rodrigue Akl was as bad with his 2.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.
ALASKA ACES 96 Henton, LaDontae 95 Abueva, Calvin 94 Jazul, RJ 87 Banchero, Chris 85 Casio, Jvee 85 Thoss, Sonny 84 Exciminiano, Chris 78 Baclao, Nonoy 76 dela Rosa, Rome 72 Manuel, Vic 72 Racal, Kevin 70 Hontiveros, Dondon 61 Menk, Eric
Calvin Abueva was no doubt the only third candidate for the Best Player of the Conference behind Jayson Castro and June Mar Fajardo. The Beast contributed 14.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.3 steals in 24.4 minutes of play. LaDontae Henton was one of the terrific and consistent imports this conference.
Eric Menk was hardly felt this conference and Dondon Hontiveros failed to deliver consistently from beyond the arc, 32.4%, and his defense was awful.
