San Sebastian’s center Ian Sangalang named MVP in the recently concluded Philippine Collegiate Champions League ( PCCL ).
The six-foot-six Sangalang averaged a double-double in leading the Stags past the Ateneo Blue Eagles as the Recoletos-based squad became the first National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) team to win the event.
Sangalang is joined in the Mythical Team by teammate Calvin Abueva, Ateneo’s Greg Slaughter and Nico Salva, and University of Cebu’s Junmar Fajardo.
Stags coach Topex Robinson was named Coach of the Year, while the Best Performing Referee award went to Romy Mangibin.
“The awardees deserve recognition for their outstanding achievements during the season-ending nationwide event,” PCCL executive director Joe Lipa said.
The prizes were provided by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas president Manny V. Pangilinan and ABS-CBN Sports.
The Eagles settled for runner-up honors followed by San Beda College and University of Cebu.
Also feted were North Central Luzon champion University of Northern Philippines, South Luzon-Bicol titlist University of Batangas, Visayas winner AMA and Mindanao titleholder STI.
