    CALVIN Abueva, Ian Sangalang and Mikey Williams say focus is on the championship and not the PBA Best Player of the Conference award.

    Williams and the TNT Tropang Giga are 2-0 ahead in the title series, but noted that work is not done as they try to hold off Magnolia in the best-of-seven series. The 29-year-old rookie is fourth in the BPC race.

    “We are in the position to compete for the championship. That’s the ultimate goal. The only goal I have is to win a championship. I’m just glad that I compete for that,” said Williams.

    Three Purefoods teams – two under Ryan Gregorio and the other under current coach Chito Victolero – were able to bounce back after starting with two losses in best-of-seven series.

    This time Victolero has Abueva.

    BPC in the 2016 Commissioner's Cup, Abeva leads the statistical points but says that’s not the priority.

    “’Yung mga stats na ’yun, hindi mo napapansin na ganun na stats mo pero ang No. 1 mong gusto talaga, mapunta sa finals and get the trophy. ‘Yun ang No. 1 doon,” said Abueva.

    Sangalang, third in the BPC race after the semifinal round behind NorthPort’s Robert Bolick, said the main goal was to make it all the way to the top after runner-up finishes in 2018 and 2019.

    THE movement of players from the Philippines to the Japan B.League isn’t over, according to sources.

    Agents of five B.League teams are said to be in talks with their counterparts in the PBA, with Robert Bolick among the new targets.

    As SPIN.ph previously reported, Barangay Ginebra big men Christian Standhardinger and Japeth Aguilar have been getting the most interest from B.League squads.

    Like Standhardinger, Bolick's three-year contract which he signed with NorthPort after being picked No. 3 overall in the 2018 PBA Rookie Draft is expiring at the end of the PBA season and both have yet to sign contract extensions.

    That means Standhardinger and Bolick will be free to sign with Japan teams if they wish so in time for the B.League playoffs.

    CALOY Yulo eyes medal finishes in the vault and the parallel bars after missing the podium on his pet event floor exercise in the 50th FIG Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Kitakyushu, Japan.

    Yulo placed fifth in the floor exercise, a big letdown after topping the qualifiers.

    The 21-year-old Yulo nearly lost his balance at one point, and was unable to repeat his world championship win three years ago.

    The vault and parallel bars finals are set later Sunday.
