The former San Beda ace averaged 5.8 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in the five games Rain or Shine played during the ‘Love’ month – all of which the team won.
Mocon played an averaged 20.18 minutes per outing and started in two out of those five games and was the leading rebounder of the team during that stretch.
Picked sixth overall by Rain or Shine in last year’s draft, Mocon jumpstarted the month by exploding for 18 points, 17 rebounds, and four assists as Rain or Shine stunned reigning and defending champion San Miguel Beer, 108-98, at the Ynares Center in Antipolo to emerge co-Best Player of the Game with two-time MVP James Yap.
