JMF still leads BPC race, Durham on track for Best Import
In the latest rankings at the end of the semifinal round, the Kraken has compiled an average of 38.455 statistical points, way ahead of no. 2 Jayson Castro who has an average of 33.563 SPs.

Despite making an early exit in the 2017 Governors' Cup, ruining their chances at a Grand Slam in the process, June Mar Fajardo maintains a healthy lead in the race for the Best Player of the Conference award.

In the latest rankings at the end of the semifinal round, the Kraken has compiled an average of 38.455 statistical points, way ahead of no. 2 Jayson Castro who has an average of 33.563 SPs.

However, it appears that Fajardo, who is tied with Danny Ildefonso for most BPC awards ever at five, is hardpressed to win the award for the season-ending conference for the sole reason that the Beermen failed to advance past the quarterfinal round.

As such, it appears that the BPC award for the 2017 Governors' Cup is a three-man race featuring Castro, Greg Slaughter (3rd with 32.625 SPs), and Chris Newsome (4th with 30.875 SPs).

Both Slaughter and Newsome are in the Finals as defending champion Ginebra defends its title against Meralco in a rematch from 2016.

Arwind Santos complete the top 5 with 30.583 SPs.

In the Best Import race, Allen Durham looks like a lock to win it all for the second straight year after compiling 58.875 SPs.

Phoenix's Brandon Brown is second with an average of 54.500 statistical points. Ginebra's Justin Brownlee is at 6th with 48.875 SPs.
