Juntilla, Espinas, Alanes dispute VisMin Cup BPC

Reed Juntilla of Zamboanga, Shaq Alanes of Basilan and Gabby Espinas of Ormoc are duking it out for the BPC of the VisMin Super Cup.

Ex-PBA players Reed Juntilla and Gabby Espinas as well as sweet-shooting guard Shaq Alanes have put themselves in a better position to dispute the Best Player of the Conference award of the GlobalPort-VisMin Super Cup.

Juntilla is the leading the scorer in the tournament, averaging 23.9 points per game.

A former MVP of the PBL VisMin Cup Challenge and member of several champion teams like Montana Pawnshop and Harbour Centre, Juntilla has led his team, the Zamboanga Valientes, to a semifinals entry.

Espinas, a six-time PBA champion, is the leading local rebounder of this import-flavored conference.

The first Rookie/MVP of the NCAA, Espinas averaged 9. 3 rebounds per game, but he had proven to be an all-around player as he is also running second in assists average per game (4.9) while also producing 13.6 points per outing.

With Espinas getting everybody on his team involved, the OCCCI-Ormoc Sheer Masters finished second in the elimination round with an 11-3 record, including a sweep of the second round.

Then, there’s Alanes, who is among the top scoring leaders among local players and one of the deadliest shooters in the tournament.

Alanes is second behind Juntilla with an average of 20.6 points per game. He is also the most consistent free throw shooter, hitting 81.2% from the charity stripe.

The lefty gunner from Basilan is third for the most three-point shots made (39).

Henry Iloka of McDavid ZamPen is leading the way in the Best Import derby as he’s been the overall leader in scoring, rebounding and shot blocking.

Iloka averaged impressive numbers of 31.6 points, 20.9 rebounds and 3.9 blocks per game.

League commissioner Cris Bautista added that the league will also name the Best Homegrown Player Of The Conference, Mythical Five and Finals MVP.
