Greg Slaughter earns BPC honor; Allen Durham’s Best Import reign continues

Greg Slaughter returned with a bang this year, as his steady presence for the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel was enough for him to be named the 2017 Governors’ Cup Best Player of the Conference, Sunday night.

The seven-footer — who spent almost a year away from basketball activities due to an ACL injury — bested the Meralco Bolts’s Chris Newsome; the San Miguel Beermen’s June Mar Fajardo and Arwind Santos; and the TNT Katropa’s Jayson Castro as he garnered 975 votes.

The Filipino-American posted norms of 14.7 points, 8.8 rebounds, and 1.63 blocks after the semifinal stage of the season-ending conference.

Meanwhile, the Orangemen’s versatile forward Allen Durham is still the best reinforcement in the Governors’ Cup, as his reign as the Best Import will continue for another year.2017-pba-governors-cup-awarding-best-import-meralco-allen-durham Greg Slaughter earns BPC honor; Allen Durham's Best Import reign continues Basketball News PBA  - philippine sports news

The Michigan-native, who racked up a couple of triple-doubles this conference, edged out Ginebra’s Justin Brownlee; TNT’s Glen Rice, Jr.; and San Miguel’s Terrence Watson en route to the award as he had earned 1,219 votes.

The six-foot-five Durham averaged 25.4 points; league-best 20.06 rebounds and 6.8 assists; and 1.25 blocks through the end of the semis.
