Bumida sa Online 45h PBA Awards Night nitong Linggo si Barangay Ginebra San Miguel guard Stanley Pringle na nagwagi bilang Best Player of the Conference.
“Just like the others said just being nominated was a blessing. It’s really hard to pick a winner. All are deserving. I’m now looking forward to playing the next conference hard,” sambit ng 33-year-old, 6-foot-1 combo guard.
“I’m not really looking to make the stats but help my team win. Shout out to my teammates. This is their award too,” dagdag pa ng beteranong basketbolista.
Dinale naman ni Meralco guard Aaron Black ang Outstanding Rookie.
“It feels great, and I want to thank God for this. Definitely, this award will push me to work harder,” bigkas ni Aaron, anak ni PBA Hall of Fame import at Bolts coach Norman Black.
Kasama ni Pringle sa Elite Five sa nagdaang season ng liga sina Ginebra’s Japeth Aguilar, Phoenix Pulse stars Calvin Abueva at Matthew Wright at JP Erram ng TNT.
Naibagahe naman ni Gin Kings playmaker Earl Scottie Thompson ang Sportsmanship Award habang Most Improved Player ang kakampi niyang si Prince Caperal. (Janiel Abby Toralba)
