ANTIPOLO—There are a lot of things June Mar Fajardo enjoys like winning titles, capturing awards, and seeing his teammates excel.

The reigning three-time PBA MVP is known for his selfless nature and when a couple of his teammates put up double-doubles, Fajardo was quite proud of the achievement.

Terrence Watson had 26 points, 11 rebounds to go along five assists, three steals, and three blocks while Alex Cabagnot posted 24 points, 13 rebounds, and six assists.

“All of us have to step up, and if possible we should all get double-doubles,” said Fajardo after San Miguel edged Phoenix, 109-107, in the PBA Governors’ Cup Wednesday at Ynares Sports Center here.

Fajardo also came away with a double-double of his own, finishing with 24 points, 17 rebounds, and six blocks.

“It’s a good thing we got the win, one more game until the end of the eliminations and we have to win our last game so we can get to the top four.” 

The Beermen, who are eyeing a Grand Slam, have a 7-3 record and are in a three-way tie with TNT and NLEX for the third spot. 

The Beermen almost had a fourth player notch a double-double after Arwind Santos put up 15 points and nine boards.
