TNT's Pogoy earns PBA Player of the Week citation

MANILA, Philippines – After helping the TNT KaTropa notch back-to-back victories, sophomore swingman Roger Pogoy has been named the PBA Player of the Week.

Pogoy has thrived in his role as TNT's gunner off the bench, and in TNT's two-game winning streak, he has normed 19.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 steal.

Though only in his second year in the league, Pogoy has played like a grizzled veteran for the KaTropa and helped his team gain a share of the third spot in the PBA Philippine Cup.
