The Beermen achieved elusive 20th title and first Philippine Cup crown in 14 years. It's the first PBA title under SMB coach Leo Austria.

PBA named Arwind Santos as this season's best player for having 22 pounts, 11 rebounds and 4 blocks.


The athletic forward was also the Finals MVP in San Miguel's last title in the 2011 Governors' Cup, then as the Petron Blaze Boosters.

Santos together with June Mar Fajardo lead heroic efforts to claim the PBA title. The duo combined for 27 points in the first two quarters to bury the Aces in a 21-point hole at the half.
