MANILA, Philippines – A new face emerged at the PBA Governors & # 39; Cup 2019 when the top local and a household name took home the best imported plum.
Christian Standhardinger of NorthPort broke into the scene after being traded from San Miguel and was named the best player at the conference, while Allen Durham of Meralco won a personal hat trick on Wednesday after winning his third prize for the best Had received import.
Standhardinger was just a replacement for the Beermen, where he scored an average of only 5.6 points and 3.2 rebounds, but released his true potential when he joined Batang Pier.
He set nightly numbers of 22.7 points and 12.8 rebounds while leading Batang Pier to the eighth seed with a 5-6 card.
The Batang Pier behind Standhardinger was able to surprise NLEX in the quarter-finals, but eventually lost to finalist Barangay Ginebra.
Durham meanwhile led the Bolts again to the second seed (8-3) and another final series against the Gin Kings.
The 6-foot-5 Durham scored an average of 29.8 points, 15.4 rebounds and 6.7 assists.
