Both Alaska and Petron rely heavily on their point guards, which is why they play heavy minutes. Alex Cabagnot play 38.8 minutes per game, while LA Tenorio logs 37.1 minutes per game.
Tenorio norms 12.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 5.2 assists a game, while Cabagnot averages 14.5 points, a league-leading 7.5 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per outing.
But beyond stats, each man serves as the floor general for his team. So who’s better at it?
