June Mar Fajardo Steers San Miguel Beer to 2018 Philippine Cup Title

San Miguel Beer captured another All-Filipino championship on Friday at the Mall of Asia Arena. San Miguel defeated Magnolia 108-99 in Game 5 of the 2018 PBA Philippine Cup. Not only is it their 4th straight All-Filipino crown, it was also their 8th All-Filipino championship overall.

It was a gritty Game 5 between San Miguel Beer and Magnolia. The Beermen needed two overtime periods to emerge victorious and they did it behind the heroics of, who else, June Mar Fajardo. Days after being named the Best Player of the Conference (his sixth such title), June Mar spearheaded the Beermen’s never-say-die determination win the championship.

Just how did June Mar do it? Fajardo finished the game with 42 points and 20 rebounds, and 26 of those pointscame in the crucial fourth quarter and 2 overtime periods!

And here’s one more game stat that showed how Fajardo steered the Beermen to victory: in the fourth quarter, Jun Mar made 14 points while the whole Magnolia team only made 12!

As a result, June Mar Fajardo was named Finals MVP again!
