Pro league press corps awards night set

THE Philippine Basketball Association Press Corps honors the players and personalities who excelled during the last season when it stages its 24th Annual Awards on Nov. 30 at the Gloria Maris Restaurant at the Gateway Mall in Cubao.

Highlighting the formal affair is the presentation of the Virgilio “Baby” Dalupan Coach of the Year trophy named after the prodigious late mentor considered as one of the brilliant coaching minds the country ever produced.

Alongside the Coach of the Year honor, also to be given out is the Danny Floro Executive of the Year award named after the amiable former team owner of the fabled Crispa Redmanizers.

Since 1993, the recognition has been given out on a yearly basis by the PBAPC, composed of the men and women representing the country’s daily broadsheets, tabloids, and websites who regularly cover the PBAt. The awards are also separate from the regular ones handed out by the pro league at season’s end.

Also to be recognized are the other regular fare of the gala presented by Cignal, such as the Defensive Player of the Year, Mr. Quality Minutes, and The ‘Bogs Adornado’ Comeback Player of the Year in honor of the league’s former three-time MVP and Hall of Famer.

Others to be cited are the All-Rookie team, Scoring champion, Order of Merit – given to the one who had the most number of Player of the Week honor given out by the PBAPC – and the All-Interview team, which is now on its second straight year.

For the first time in the awards history, the group will also honor the ‘Game of the Season’ which goes to the teams that provided the most intense and memorable match of the year.

The official PBAPC Facebook page will also be launched during the affair to be hosted by courtside reporter Rizza Diaz and veteran broadcaster Sev Sarmenta.
