Robert Bolick will be presented with the first PBA Best Player of Conference award

ROBERT Bolick was besieged by rookie Stephen Holt and veterans June Mar Fajardo and Christian Standhardinger in the race for the PBA Philippine Cup Best Player of the Conference.

The four emerged as the biggest threat to Bolick’s bid to win his first-ever BPC award, based on the final statistical point standings released at the end of the eliminations.

Bolick, NLEX’s high-scoring guard who leads the league in both scoring (27.4) and assist (7.0), continued to lead the race with a total of 44.5 statistical points.

But Holt, the top Terrafirma rookie, has risen in the rankings, securing second spot with 41.5 sps behind his all-around numbers of 21.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 2.5 steals.

The 6-foot-4 Fil-Am makes a strong case for the individual award after Terrafirma claimed the eighth and final spot in the quarterfinals with a 104-96 victory over Northport on Wednesday night.
