    Jan 17, 2021

    PRINCE Caperal of Barangay Ginebra won the Most Improved Player award of the PBA 45th season.

    Caperal beat Justin Chua and Jason Perkins of Phoenix, Raul Soyud of NLEX, Reynel Hugnatan of Meralco, and Javee Mocon of Rain or Shine for the plum which was formally made official during simple rites on Sunday done in virtual form.

    Stepping out of the shadows of Greg Slaughter who took a sabbatical during the 2020 season, Caperal followed in the footsteps of Scottie Thompson, Elmer Lago, and Pido Jarencio as Ginebra players who captured the Most Improved Player award.
