Corps Player of the Week award for the period of September 4-10. He edged Alaska’s Calvin Abueva, TNT’s Jayson Castro, and San Miguel teammates June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos for the weekly citation.
Just a week after a four-point, five-turnover performance in San Miguel’s 90-79 loss to Alaska in Pampanga, Ross took it upon himself to improve in the Beermen’s remaining games in the PBA Governors’ Cup.
He did just that last Wednesday, knocking down five three-pointers en route to a conference-high 27 points to lift SMB to a 103-96 win.
Four days later, Ross teamed up with Alex Cabagnot, new import Terrence Watson, Santos, and Fajardo as the Beermen snapped Ginebra’s seven-game winning streak with a 107-103 win.
Ross finished with 20 points, five assists, four rebounds, and four steals.
The two wins propelled San Miguel into a tie with TNT at the fourth spot, reviving the Beermen’s hopes for a Top 4 finish that will grant them a twice-to-beat advantage in the playoffs. Abs-cbnnews
