Fil-German rookie Christian Standhardinger captured his second Cignal-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week award for the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup following another monster effort that helped San Miguel Beer clinch a playoff berth.

The 6-foot-8 Standhardinger has been a picture of consistency for the Beermen, who won back-to-back games this past week to stretch their winning run to four en route to sealing a playoff spot.

The Beermen currently occupy the sixth spot in the standings with their 6-4 card, behind Barangay Ginebra’s 8-2 record, Magnolia (8-3), Alaska (8-3), Phoenix and Blackwater, which carry similar 7-3 records.

The SMB freshman beat teammate Alex Cabagnot, Phoenix forward Calvin Abueva, NLEX’s JR Quinahan, Blackwater’s Mark Belo, along with Ginebra’s Greg Slaughter and Sol Mercado for the weekly citation for the period of Oct. 22-28.
