PBA: Perkins on track for Rookie of the Year award
Consistent all throughout, Perkins had a strong Governors' Cup to pad his lead over former La Salle teammate Jeron Teng.

It’s going to be a battle between two former La Salle players for the 2017-2018 PBA Rookie of the Year award.

Phoenix's Jason Perkins currently leads all rookies as the no. 3 pick of the 2017 Draft has accumulated an average of 23.4 statistical points so far this season.

Consistent all throughout, Perkins had a strong Governors' Cup to pad his lead over former La Salle teammate Jeron Teng.

The Alaska Ace is currently in second place with 18.3 SPs.

Raymar Jose of Blackwater is in third place with 14.0 SPs.

Top-2 picks Christian Standhardinger and Kiefer Ravena are ineligible for the award after failing to meet the required number of games.

Standhardinger missed all of the Philippine Cup following his stint for Hong Kong Eastern in the ABL while Ravena is currently still suspended by FIBA due to a doping violation.
