Top 5 Imports of the week (September 4-10)

September 12, 2017

Allen Durham

29 pts 27 rebs 7 assts 3 blks 1 stl vs Star (September 9)
39 pts 24 rebs 4 assts vs TNT Katropa (September 6)

After leading Meralco to last year's Governor's Cup Finals, Allen Durham is back with unfinished business and has provided the inside presence the Bolts lack as well as facilitating the offense, evident to his league leading 6.8 assists per game average. Meralco suffered its second loss of the conference against TNT Katropa last Wednesday and followed it up with a hard earned victory versus the Star Hotshots with Durham leading the way with 29 points and 27 rebounds.

Terrence Watson

28 pts 17 rebs 4 assts 2 blks 1 stl vs Ginebra (September 10)

San Miguel Beer's 3rd import might just be what the doctor ordered for their grand slam hopes. Terrence Watson came in and provided relentless hustle and energy en route to a 28 points, 17 rebound outing for the Beermen against the streaking Barangy Ginebra San Miguel Kings. With Watson on board, the Beermen are gearing up for a top 4 finish come playoff time.

Glen Rice Jr.

32 pts 11 rebs 3 assts 2 stls vs Meralco (September 6)

The former Washington Wizard is slowly getting the feel of the PBA style of play. Displaying his versatility both on offense and defense, he is a matchup nightmare for the opposition. Rice currently leads the league in steals with a 3.5 average per game. Last Wednesday, he led the Katropa to a much deserved win opposite the Meralco Bolts and was on fire during the first half with 21 points as he went on to make 36 points.

20 pts 13 rebs 7 assts 3 blks vs Kia (September 10)
36 pts 21 rebs 4 assts 1 blk 2 stls vs Globalport (September 8)

One of the returning imports in this year's batch, the former Providence College Friar was superb in leading the Alaska Aces last week to two straight wins as they head to the tail-end of their elimination round schedule. Against Globalport, Henton erupted for 36 points, with 14 coming in the third quarter last Friday.

Justin Brownlee

14 pts 12 rebs 7 assts 5 blks 1 stl vs San Miguel (September 10)
17 pts 13 rebs 6 assts 4 blks 1 stl vs Blackwater (September 8)

With the biggest line-up in the league today, Justin Brownlee has found a way to be effective in Coach Tim Cone's triangle offense. He hits shots via kick-out passes and as well as getting his teammates involved. Ginebra may have seen their seven game winning run come to an end but never count out the former St. John's University standout he leads Ginebra back on the winning track and defend their Governor\'s Cup title.
