The consequences of CJ Perez’s suspension now include a runaway Most Valuable Player, as Prince Eze of the University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas is set to be crowned the MVP of the NCAA Season 94 Seniors Basketball Tournament.

The Nigerian student-athlete has tallied 61.39 Player All-around Value. Eze led Perpetual to the Final Four with an 11-7 record – a seven-win improvement from last season.

The 6-foot-10 big man will also be crowned the Defensive Player of the Year as he tallied 297 rebounds, three steals, and 59 blocks for the season.

Perez was supposed to be a close runner-up, but the versatile swingman was slapped with a one-game ban due to not disclosing to the NCAA that he will enter the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft. He has therefore been disqualified from the race.

Completing the Mythical Five are Bong Quinto of Letran and the San Beda troika of Robert Bolick, Javee Mocon, and Donald Tankoua.

Larry Muyang, a transferee from De La Salle University, topped the Rookie of the Year race, besting Justin Gutang of the Saint Benilde Blazers.

Archie Concepcion bagged the Most Improved Player plum, as he jumped from 94th last year to 52nd.

The NCAA Seniors Basketball individual awarding ceremony will take place on Monday, November 12, before Game 2.
