MANILA, Philippines — Hapee guard-forward Ray Parks was named Most Valuable Player of the 2015 PBA D-League Aspirants Cup.
The 21-year-old Parks was awarded the MVP trophy at center court before Game 1 of the best-of-three Finals between the Fresh Fighters and the top-seeded Cagayan Valley Rising Suns at the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan on Monday.
Parks, a former two-time UAAP MVP as a member of the National University Bulldogs, led Hapee to a 10-1 record in the elimination round with its only loss coming at the hands of Cagayan at the buzzer.
The 6-foot-4 Parks, son of the late legendary PBA import Bobby Ray, bested Cagayan’s Fil-Tongan big man Moala Tautuaa and teammate Garvo Lanete, who was the MVP of the same conference last year for the NLEX Road Warriors, for the top individual plum. Mark Giongco, INQUIRER.net
