1,151

Mark Tallo received his first-ever Player of the Week citation, two months after he was signed by NLEX Road Warriors.

With the absence of frontcourt Kiefer Ravena and Kevin Alas, the Cebuano guard rose to the occasion and led NLEX to an impressive 2-0 start in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup.

Tallo averaged 15.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists to become the first Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week.

The 10th overall pick in the 2017 PBA Draft scored 16 points in the opening day as he helped NLEX defeat TNT, the team that originally selected him, at 103-90.

Tallo wounded 14 points, four rebounds and one assist as NLEX rips Stanley Pringle-less NorthPort, 123-107.
