Our nominees for the February AirAsia Player of the Month are:-

Chris Banchero, San Miguel Beermen
Banchero caused quite the stir when he entered the league last season with the Beermen and has effortlessly taken his incredible form from the 2012 season into the 2013 season.
Averaging 17ppg from three games in February, Banchero had a stand-out game in the Beermenâ€™s win against the Slammers on the 13th of February where he led all-scoring with 26 points.
Dior Lowhorn, Saigon Heat
This is the first season in the ABL for 6â€™7â€ť forward Dior Lowhorn who made his debut with the Saigon Heat earlier in the year. Since then, Lowhorn has proved his ability on the court and made himself very popular with the Heatâ€™s rabid fan base.
One of the most consistent players in the league, Lowhorn averaged a whopping 30ppg in February and is currently the leagueâ€™s scoring leader.
Froilan Baguion, Chang Thailand Slammers
A veteran of the League, Baguion was part of the Slammers squad that won the championship in the 2010/2011 season of the ABL.
An all-around player, Baguion is currently the Leagueâ€™s leader in assists but proved in the game against the Dragons on the 1st of February that he can also score, finishing with 23 points on top of 13 assists.
Â Â Â Â
Mario Wuysang, Indonesia Warriors
A familiar face in the League and the Indonesian basketball scene, Wuysang is quickly building a case for himself this season as a contender for the ABLâ€™s Local MVP award.
Averaging 15.3ppg in February, Wuysang put in outstanding performances in his teamâ€™s win over the Beermen on the 8th of February as he posted 20 points and then again on the 15th of February against the Slammers with 16 points.
Sammy Monroe Jr., Westports Malaysia Dragons
Monroe came into the Dragonâ€™s squad to fill in for the injured Cedric Bozeman but has more than exceeded expectations for the team, proving himself as one of the most exciting players to hit the court this season.
Monroe topped the table in scoring for February, posting 32 points each in the two games he played this month against the Beermen (16 Feb) and the Slammers (23 Feb).
Wong Wei Long, JobStreet.com Singapore Slingers
A fan favourite since he entered the league, Wong has had to sit out most of his teamâ€™s away games this season due as he concentrates on furthering his studies. That has not stopped him from putting up some of the more outstanding performances in February however.
Wong holds a 16.5ppg average for February, including a 20 point performance in his teamâ€™s win over the Saigon Heat on the 17th of February.
