Ross beats Cabagnot to win his first BPC award
Ross earned a total of 1038 points for the win, beating Alex Cabagnot (746 points), Jayson Castro (630 points), June Mar Fajardo (530 points), and Stanley Pringle (415 points).

At the end of the closest Best Player of the Conference race the PBA has seen in a long time, Chris Ross edged two of his teammates to win the highest individual honor of his career so far.

A two-time Philippine Cup Finals MVP and the reigning PBA defensive Player of the Year, Ross added the 2017 Commissioner's Cup BPC award to his list of accolades, officially taking the trophy home Thursday at the Araneta Coliseum.

Ross earned a total of 1038 points for the win, beating Alex Cabagnot (746 points), Jayson Castro (630 points), June Mar Fajardo (530 points), and Stanley Pringle (415 points).

Ross was actually tied with Cabagnot in the statistical race before winning over the votes from the media and the PBA Office. He finished second to Castro in the player votes.

After landing only in the 8th spot at the end of the elimination round, Ross did some major work in the playoffs to catch up to Cabagnot in the statistical race.

Ross ended up averaging 13.9 points, 5.19 rebounds, 8.06 assists, and 2.94 steals per game for San Miguel through the semis.
