Ray Parks leads SP race, Pringle in contention for PBA Bubble BPC

Though sitting out the last three games, TNT super sophomore Bobby Ray Parks has emerged as the stats race winner at the end of the PBA Philippine Cup bubble tournament at the AUF Sports Center in Angeles, Pampanga. 

Phoenix’s Calvin Abueva, Terrafirma’s CJ Perez, and another Phoenix stalwart Matthew Wright kept their places behind Parks. Meanwhile, TNT’s RR Pogoy grabbed the fifth spot after his solid showing as the lead gun of the Tropa in a gritty but losing stand versus Ginebra in the finale.

But Parks topped them all with 38.2 statistical points (SP) average, followed by Abueva (37.1), Perez (35.7), Wright (35.65), and Pogoy (35.64).

Other big gainers in the title playoff were Ginebra’s Stanley Pringle (34.8) and Japeth Aguilar (32.9).

Pringle narrowly missed the Top Five, while Japeth Aguilar rallied from way out to finish eighth.

Scottie Thompson (with 32.8 at No. 9) is the third Ginebra player making the Top 25, who are now the official contenders for the “Special Five” whom the PBA will honor in a special awards rites in January.

Also making the Top 10 are NorthPort’s Christian Standhardinger (34.6) and Phoenix’s Jason Perkins (32.7).

NLEX’s Kiefer Ravena (32.6) and San Miguel Beer’s Moala Tautuaa (32.5) missed the Top 10 by a hairline.

They are followed by Paul Lee, Chris Newsome, Jayson Castro, Arwind Santos, Vic Manuel, Kevin Alas, Poy Erram, Ian Sangalang, Javee Mocon, Marcio Lassiter, Justin Chua, JR Quinahan, and Robert Herndon to round out the Top 25.

The top rookies were Terrafirma’s Roosevelt Adams (20.3), Meralco’s Aaron Black (17.3), Alaska’s Barkley Ebona (16.3), Magnolia’s Aris Dionisio (15.9), and Ginebra’s Arvin Tolentino (15.5).
