Mark Barroca wins PBA Governors’ Cup Finals MVP
Magnolia guard Mark Barroca more than made up for his rough play in Game 4 that nearly cost him a suspension with a Finals MVP performance in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup title series against Alaska.
Barroca, who is now a six-time PBA champion, averaged 11 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists and 1.8 steals per game in the championship round.
“This championship is special because it’s been a long time since we won the championship,” Barroca said in a TV interview shortly after the final buzzer of Game 6.

The 32-year-old Barroca helped the Hotshots close out the Aces in six games with 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and one steal in a masterful 102-86 victory Wednesday night.
Barroca bagged his second Finals MVP plum after also earning the recognition back in the 2014 Philippine Cup.
Magnolia gave the Purefoods franchise its 14 crown overall and ended a four-year title drought.
