June Mar Fajardo claims 6th straight All-Filipino BPC award

JUNE Mar Fajardo is not just collecting MVP trophies but Best Player of the Conference (BPC) titles as well.

The 29-year-old San Miguel stalwart clinched a sixth straight All-Filipino BPC award Wednesday night after winning the award in runaway fashion.

Emerging top in statistical points (460), media (484), players (71), and the PBA votes, Fajardo finished with a total of 1,165 points or about half more than his closest pursuer in Sean Anthony of NorthPort.

In winning his eight BPC title, Fajardo also extended his own record as the most winningest in the league since it began handing out the award in 1994.

Fajardo also holds the PBA record for most number of MVP awards won with a total of five.

Anthony again came short of winning the individual accolade, garnering a total of 641 points and placing second behind Fajardo in statistics (412) and media votes (225).

The veteran forward has been a consistent BPC candidate through the years, but has yet to win the award.

Third year TnT Katropa guard Roger Pogoy finished third with 522 points.

Current scoring champion Stanley Pringle came in fourth (473) and actually finished better in terms of statistics over Pogoy (387). He also received the second most votes among players (38) and got the lone vote from the PBA outside of Fajardo (25).
