    SAN Miguel import Cameron Clark put himself in the conversation for the Best Import award as the Beermen advanced to the PBA Governors' Cup semifinals on Sunday with their win over Converge.

    Being a semifinalist, Clark has automatically become a candidate for the Best Import plum after the Beermen defeated the FiberXers, 121-105, on Sunday at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.

    Clark was fifth in the statistical race for the Best Import award at the close of the eliminations. But with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson of TNT, Jamaal Franklin of Converge, Antonio Hester of Magnolia, and Kevin Murphy of NorthPort above him, Clark is first among imports who have played in all the games for his team with an average statistical points of 51.8.

    Justin Brownlee of Barangay Ginebra is in sixth with 51.5.

    "That's just (me) playing hard and competing every game, trying to guard the import, and at the same time, being aggressive in scoring and rebounding, and doing what my team needs to win," said Clark.

    It goes without saying that Clark has been a huge addition for a San Miguel team that had import woes in the past.

    Just last conference, San Miguel reached the semifinals but not after several import changes after original choice Thomas Robinson got injured and Diamond Stone and Devon Scott suiting up in different games.

      "Cam has always been great," said San Miguel coach Jorge Gallent. "The best thing about Cam is he is improving every game. He has been good for us. We are happy that every game, he tends to improve."

      Clark said he is just trying to be a good teammate in order to be a great fit to the San Miguel system.

      "We are gelling together as a team. I'm playing hard, finding my teammates, find out what they are good at, just try to expose what I can do and me trying to fit in," said Clark.
