Chris Ross Receives PBA Player of the Week Honors

Veteran guard Chris Ross is leading the San Miguel Beermen back to contention in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup. Injuries have plagued the team, but the 38-year-old has stepped up his game to help the Beermen make a strong push for a Top 4 finish in the elimination phase.

From December 13 to 17, Ross played a crucial role in the Beermen’s victories over title contenders Barangay Ginebra and TNT. He scored 22 points in the matchup against Ginebra and was instrumental in the come-from-behind win against TNT, averaging 13.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.5 steals in the two games combined.

Ross’s leadership and performance on the court earned him the PBA Press Corps-Pilipinas Live Player of the Week award. Despite competition from other standout players in the league, Ross’s contributions to the Beermen set him apart.

Notably, Ross displayed an impressive shooting performance, with a 67% shooting average and a 58% conversion rate from beyond the arc. This is especially notable for a player known for his defensive prowess in the PBA.

The veteran’s contributions have helped the Beermen secure a 5-3 record and tie with Northport for fourth to fifth places in the standings. With the possibility of clinching a twice-to-beat edge in the quarterfinals, Ross’s impact on the team’s success is undeniable.
