MANILA, Philippines – A big year for the big guy.

Sophomore center June Mar Fajardo of the Petron Blaze Boosters is hailed as the Best Player of the Conference in the 2013-2014 PLDT Home DSL PBA Philippine Cup.

The 6-foot-11 Cebuano slotman beat teammate Arwind Santos, Brgy. Ginebra’s high-flying Japeth Aguilar and rookie Greg Slaughter, and Globalport Batang Pier forward Jay Washington for the distinction.

He received the award before Game 4 of the PBA Finals where San Mig Coffee currently leads Rain or Shine, 2-1.

Fajardo, member of the Gilas Pilipinas men’s national basketball squad, led the league with 38.77 statistical points (SPs) per pba-online.net and is also the leader in player efficiency (43.55 EFF)

He averaged a gargantuan 16.4 PPG and 14.9 RPG in 18 games played, finishing with a double-double production in all but two games in this conference.

Statistical points account for 40% of the total score while media votes (30%), player votes (25%) and votes from the Commissioner’s Office (5%) make up the rest of the criteria.

Fajardo helped Petron to a 10-4 record at the end of the eliminations; in the quarterfinals they swept Barako Bull, 2-0 but got waylaid by eventual finalist Rain or Shine, 4-1 in the semifinals.
