Some players could be overlooked when they are all too willing to be in the background.
Not Harvey Carey.
Talk ‘N Text’s do-it-all forward came up with an unforgettable game last Friday that not only lifted his undermanned team over a feared foe but also into a share of the lead in the PBA Philippine Cup.
In the process, the burly 6-foot-4 forward earned for himself the Accel-PBA Press Corps Player of the Week honors for the period Oct. 10 to 16.
Carey earned the second citation for the season handed out by the scribes who religiously cover the league when he scored 28 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in the Tropang Texters’107-98 win over Rain or Shine last Friday.
“Well-deserved,” said Talk ‘N Text coach Chot Reyes, noting how Carey continues to step up his game for the team still missing the services of Kelly Williams, Jimmy Alapag and Ranidel de Ocampo, who were given time off following their rigorous stint with the national squad.
