Stand­hardinger way ahead in BPC derby

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

Fe­lims of the sea­so­nend­ing con­fer­ence. A down­side for Stand­hardinger was a mere sixth-place fin­ish by the Beer­men in the pre­lims. They need to win two in a row ver­sus the Alaska Milk Aces to make the be­stof-five semi­fi­nals.

Barangay Gine­bra cen­ter/for­ward Japeth Aguilar put in av­er­ages of 19.9 points, 6/ 9 re­bounds, 1.8 as­sists, 1.0 block, and 0.5 steal as he placed sec­ond be­hind Stand­hardinger in the BPC race with 34.8 SPs an out­ing.

Closely trail­ing Aguilar are Alaska Milk's Chris Banchero (34.2), NorthPort's Stan­ley Pringle (34.0) and Phoenix Petroleum's Calvin Abueva (31.9) to round out the Magic Five.

The next five are NorthPort's Sean An­thony (31.3), Mag­no­lia's Paul Lee (30.9), TNT KaTropa's Ter­rence Romeo (30.4), Gine­bra's Scot­tie Thomp­son (30.1) and Columbian Dyip's Jer­ramy King (29.1).

Banchero, who is en­joy­ing his best con­fer­ence in the lo­cal pro league, leads all com­ers in as­sists (8.7) while An­thony paces the field in steals (2.25).

A wild and wooly race is seen in the Best Im­port derby.

Alaska's Mike Har­ris (60.4), Gine­bra's Justin Brown­lee (59.1) and Phoenix's Eu­gene Phelps (58.0) are bunched tightly in the Top Three.

Aaron Fuller (57.4) is closely be­hind the three but he's es­sen­tially out of the race on the exit of NLEX in the tour­ney in los­ing their quar­ter­fi­nal matchup with Gine­bra.
