Mike Harris tops Romeo Travis for Best Import plum
MANILA, Philippines – In an intense duel for the 2018 PBA Governors' Cup Best Import of the Conference award, it was Alaska's Mike Harris who came out on top.
The 35-year-old reinforcement, who is seeing action in his first PBA conference, recorded 1,209 points to lift the precious hardware and deny finals rival and Magnolia import Romeo Travis his second Best Import plum.
Leading the Aces to their first finals appearance since 2014 and dropping monster outings day in and day out, Harris ruled the statistics (540) and earned the most points from the media (456) and the Commissioner's Office (150).
It was only in the players votes that Harris lost to Travis, 63-88.
Travis, who won Best Import back when he was with the Aces in the 2015 edition of the season-ending conference, amassed 914 points to settle for 2nd place.
Interestingly, Harris became the first player under the Alaska franchise to win Best Import since Travis.
Former award winners Justin Brownlee of Barangay Ginebra (679) and Allen Durham of Meralco (541) landed at 3rd and 4th, respectively. – Rappler.com
