NEEDING a late push to salvage a playoff berth in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup, June Mar Fajardo came and delivered the goods for the San Miguel Beermen.
The five-time MVP submitted big numbers in the Beermen’s wins over Phoenix and Rain or Shine, earning PBA Press Corps Player of the Week honors for the period July 8 to 14.
Fajardo averaged 22.5 points and 14.5 rebounds as San Miguel beat Phoenix (128-108) and Rain or Shine (89-87).
Fajardo got a total of nine votes while none from other candidates Robert Bolick (NorthPort) and Bobby Ray Parks (Blackwater), Japeth Aguilar, Stanley Pringle, and Scottie Thompson (Barangay Ginebra) and Kenneth Ighalo (NLEX) received a single vote.
The 29-year-old San Miguel stalwart imposed himself inside for 22 points and 14 rebounds as the Beermen whipped the Fuel Masters last July 10.
