Statmonkey of the Day - July 13, 2011 (Espinas)
STATMONKEY OF THE DAY
PBA GOVERNOR’S CUP
JULY 13, 2011
Alaska bolstered their chances to make it to the next level by stopping Rain or Shine, 88 to 83. With the win, the Aces got hold of the fourth place – tying the Elasto Painters in the process. Meanwhile, the Talk N Text Tropang Texters advances to the next round in a tightly-fought battle against the Meralco Bolts, 93 to 91.
Getting the breaks en route to top import honors is Arizona Reid. He has been called to this spot a bunch of times and if he takes Rain or Shine to the finals, he’ll likely hook up on a Best Import tag.
For the Statmonkey honors, let’s give it to the former PCU Dolphin Gabby Espinas. Despite the loss, Espinas led all locals in scoring and rebounding on July 13.
