Rhenz Abando is set to be crowned the NCAA Season 97 Seniors Basketball Tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

In an unofficial Player Average Value race by Tiebreaker Times, the 6-foot-2 athletic wing amassed 49.88 PAVs, good for second in the league after averaging 15.11 points, 6.67 rebounds, 1.89 assists, and 1.44 blocks.

Abando also led Letran to a nine-game elimination sweep in the tournament.

Arellano University’s Justin Arana led the PAV race with a whopping 62.875 PAVs.

However, Arana will not win the MVP plum after the Chiefs were eliminated in the play-in by Perpetual Help, as players who entered the Final Four are eligible to win the top individual award.

Joining Abando and Arana in the Mythical Five are Saint Benilde’s Will Gozum (49.222), Letran’s Jeo Ambohot (48.88), and San Sebastian College’s JM Calma (44.44).

Like in UAAP, the Mythical members in the Grand Old League finished top five in the PAV race.

Abando, who transferred from the University of Santo Tomas, will most likely win the Rookie of the Year award since even transferees like him from other collegiate leagues are eligible to win the said honors.
