The first round is now in the books, and already we’ve seen some monster performances from some of the league’s best players. From insane scoring efforts to massive rebounding and assists performances, and a couple of all-around outings, the 91st season of the NCAA has been very entertaining so far.

With that being said, let’s take a look at who’s ahead of the statistical races after the first round of eliminations in the men’s basketball tournament!

 

POINTS PER GAME

Bright Akhuetie has kept his place atop the scoring list, and while his numbers have dipped, so has everyone else’s. Still, Mr. Brightside remains the league’s premier scoring threat at 21.33 points per game.

San Beda’s Big Red Machine Art Dela Cruz still sits at second place with almost 20 points per outing, while King Cardinal Josan Nimes comes in at third with over 18 markers a game.

REBOUNDS PER GAME

If there’s anyone who’s kept his numbers steadily improving, it’s Mapua’s Allwell Oraeme. The Cardinals center has raised his rebounding numbers from 18.0 last week to a massive 19.1 to close out the first round. Of course, his 28-rebound effort against Letran didn’t hurt as well.

San Sebastian’s Bradwyn Guinto comes in at second almost 13 boards a game, and Art Dela Cruz finds himself at third over 12 rebounds a game.

ASSISTS PER GAME

For the most of the first round, Arellano’s “Bus Driver” Jiovani Jalalon was ahead of the pack in the assists category, and while he still leads the league, he now shares that honor with his good friend and reigning MVP Scottie Thompson of Perpetual.

The Altas’ triple-double machine (Thompson has recorded three this season, so far) and Jalalon both average almost nine assists a game to close out the first round, while Red Lion Art Dela Cruz makes another appearance in the top-three of a statistical category with a little over six assists per contest.

STEALS PER GAME

Letran’s Rey Nambatac’s offense has helped his Knights to a league-leading 8-1 record in the first round, but we can’t forget that the sweet-shooting swingman also disrupts the opponents’ offense with more than three steals per game.

Arellano’s Jiovani Jalalon comes in at second with exactly three thefts per game, while Nambatac’s running mate Mark Cruz averages a little less than two and a half steals per game.

BLOCKS PER GAME

Again, Mapua’s big man Allwell Oraeme is an impact down low, whether it be in rebounding or on defense. The towering Cardinal also leads the league in rejections with over four a game.

Perpetual’s Prince Eze comes in at second with over two blocks per game, while Lyceum’s Jean Nguidjol averages just a shade under two rejections per contest.
