TERRENCE Romeo was officially named the Most Valuable Player of the UAAP Season 76 men’s basketball tournament, winning by the slimmest of margins over Charles Mammie of University of the East in the statistical points race.

According to the official statistics report issued by Imperium Technology and Smart Bro, Romeo amassed 75.2857 statistical points (SPs) at the end of the tournament after averaging 22.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 1.6 steals.
Romeo edged out Mammie, who had 75 SPs after seeing action for 12 games with the Red Warriors with averages of 15.1 points and 19 rebounds.
Mammie, however, was disqualified from winning any award after being slapped with two separate one-game suspensions by UAAP commissioner Chito Loyzaga during the season.
Mammie came so close to becoming the first foreign-born player to win a UAAP MVP since FEU’s Anthony Williams in 1981.
Two-time UAAP MVP Bobby Ray Parks of National University ranked third in the MVP race with 73.8571 SPs, while Karim Abdul of University of Santo Tomas placed fourth with 70.9286 SPs.
Roi Sumang of UE and Emmanuel Mbe of NU placed fifth and sixth with 64 and 63.5714 SPs, respectively, followed by Jason Perkins of La Salle (58.5), Jeron Teng of La Salle (58.2857), Chris Newsome of Ateneo (55.7143), and Almond Vosotros of La Salle (55.0714).
