MANILA, Philippines -- For steering their respective teams to crucial victories in the PBA Governors Cup, Troy Rosario and Jeron Teng emerged as the PBA Press Corps-Cignal Co-Player of the Week.

Rosario played a key role in TNT's two-game sweep of its schedule for the period of October 7-13, while Teng came up big in his return to injury and propelled Alaska to its first win of the conference.

The 6-foot-7 Rosario averaged 17.0 points in the Katropa's back-to-back wins over NorthPort and Meralco. 

He played the hero's role as the team edged Batang Pier, 103-100, with his corner three inside the final minute regaining TNT the lead for good. 

The back-to-back wins hiked TNT's record to 6-0, and clinched for them a quarterfinals berth.

Teng, meanwhile, hardly showed the effects of the hamstring injury that grounded him at the start of the conference as he poured in 18 points in the Aces' breakthrough win, 78-71, opposite Rain or Shine.

At 1-5, Alaska kept its flickering hopes alive of making the playoffs.

Crowing out Rosario and Teng for the weekly honor were Roger Pogoy and Jayson Castro of TNT, Columbian Dyip's Rashawn McCarthy, and the Barangay Ginebra duo of Stanley Pringle and LA Tenorio.
