A member of the San Miguel Beermen will most likely win the 2017 Oppo PBA Commissioner’s Cup Best Player of the Conference award.
Based on the statistics released by the league on Monday, San Miguel guards Chris Ross and Alex Cabagnot are tied for first in the player rankings with 34.125 statistical points (SP) each at the end of the semifinal round.

Neither Ross nor Cabagnot has won a Best Player of the Conference plum.
Their teammate, June Mar Fajardo, who was last conference’s BPC awardee, lingers in third with 33.067 SPs. Following behind are GlobalPort’s Stanley Pringle with 32.538 SPs and TNT’s Jayson Castro with 32.467 SPs.
