    He went on to score 25 and said he is pleased to reach the mark, although he remains focused on winning.

    Santos became only the third player to achieve the feat in the last 21 years after James Yap and Mark Caguioa, both MVP awardees.

    Named Defensive Player of the Year for Season 46, Santos said he won’t stop chasing individual accomplishments, but noted championships are the top goals.

    “Ang gusto ko mag-champion, manalo, makatulong sa team. Yun lang. Tapos yung mga naniniwala sa akin, malaman nila na si Arwind, competitive, na lagi kong binibigay ang best ko sa laro,” said the NorthPort big man.
