Fajardo believes Castro deserves Best Player of the Conference award


San Miguel slotman June Mar Fajardo believed that TNT guard Jayson Castro deserves the Best Player of the Conference honors.

Fajardo came in second in the total tally garnering 762 accumulated points from the statistical points, Media votes, players votes and the PBA against Castro’s 1077 points.

“Deserve si Jayson nun, kasi ang ganda ng nilaro niya throughout the conference deserve sya na makakuha nun so Congrats kay Jayson tsaka sa import sa best import,” said Fajardo.

Castro and best import winner Terrence Jones were awarded before the Game Four of the Commissioner’s Cup Finals. However, the Katropa lost the game after a 106-101 decision favoring the Beermen.

Incidentally, Fajardo was instrumental for the Beermen especially during a 12-0 run in the third quarter. SMB went exclusively to Fajardo as he gave the Beermen the much needed separation which they protected and never relinquished up until the final buzzer.

The five-time PBA MVP finished with 22 points, and 7 boards.

The Beermen were able to avoid falling into a 1-3 hole but most importantly, they were able to tie the series once again.
