    FOR making the big baskets that helped propel San Miguel Beer to a two-game lead over Ginebra in the PBA Philippine Cup semifinals, Marcio Lassiter earned the PBA Press Corps Player of the Week citation for the period covering March 6 to 11.

    Lassiter highlighted his explosive performance in the semifinals by making the game-winning putback to give San Miguel a 2-0 series lead.

    The fourth overall pick in the 2011 PBA draft completed SMB’s comeback from a 15-point deficit by scoring a putback off Fajardo’s missed layup to seal the Beermen’s heart-stopping 104-102 overtime win.

      In the series opener, the 30-year-old Lassiter knocked down five triples as San Miguel downed a weary Ginebra side.

      The former Smart-Gilas shooter finished that game with 17 points, five rebounds and the same number of assists in 30 minutes as he more than made up for four-time league MVP June Mar Fajardo’s quiet offense.

      Lassiter won the vote over teammates Fajardo and Arwind Santos, along with NLEX’s Cyrus Baguio and Kiefer Ravena for the weekly citation.
