Brgy. Ginebra San Miguel lead point guard LA Tenorio was adjudged as the Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award for the period covering June 18 to 24 following his impressive all-around performance which was a key factor in the Gin Kings 4-game winning streak.
The 33-year old native of Nasugbu, Batangas submitted averages of 14 points, 4 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 4 steals in a pair of lopsided wins over Columbian and Alaska.
Tenorio scored 16 points, issued 10 assists, grabbed 3 rebounds and stole the ball 3 times as the Gin Kings demolished the listless Dyip 133-104.
The former Gilas Pilipinas stalwart was back on the court four days later and contributed 12 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals as Brgy. Ginebra zoomed to its 4th straight win with a 105-86 manhandling of Alaska.
The unexpected rout of the Aces propelled the Gin Kings to a 5-5 record and along with it a good shot of making it into the top 6 going into the playoffs.
The 5-foot-10 product of Ateneo de Manila University beat teammate Japeth Aguilar, San Miguel’s June Mar Fajardo and Marcio Lassiter, Phoenix’s Matthew Wright, Rain or Shine’s Maverick Ahanmisi, and TNT’s Troy Rosario for the weekly citation.
