[Editor's note: Beginning with this piece, SPIN.ph puts the spotlight on the top athletes who stood out with excellent performances in the past week.]
Poy Erram (21 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3 blocks in 2 games). The former back-up to Greg Slaughter during their time in Ateneo showed how far his game has improved, outplaying the Ginebra giant in Blackwater’s win last Friday. He also sustained his stellar play in a loss to TNT on Wednesday.
Kiefer Ravena (31 points, five assists, four rebounds and four steals). The NLEX super rookie brought out his best game against another former ward of Road Warriors coach Yeng Guiao in Paul Lee. Unfortunately, Ravena’s career-high effort went for naught in a loss to Magnolia on Sunday.
Shola Alvarez (24 points on 22 kills vs EAC). The JRU skipper has been the surprise star in NCAA women’s volleyball as she led the Lady Bombers to an easy win over EAC last Friday. Her 24 points was four short of her output in a previous win over San Sebastian. She also had 19 points in a loss to Arellano on Tuesday.
Joshua Munzon (32 points, seven rebounds, six assists, four steals). The Fil-American guard may have been a late addition to Westports Malaysia but continued to be one of the top stat-sheet stuffers in the ABL, more so in the loss to Mono Vampire last Friday.
CJ Cansino (29 points, 18 rebounds, two blocks). The UST Tiger Cubs star continued to prove his worth as UAAP juniors MVP leader and, arguably the best high school player in the country, in filling up the stat sheet but in a loss to UPIS.
