Career highlights and awards

Sunday Salvacion (born December 17, 1978, in Tago, Surigao del Sur) is a Filipino professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) who plays for the Blackwater Elite in the small forward and shooting guard positions.

Known as a scorer during his college days, Salvacion, who was a former NCAA Most Valuable Player has evolved into a solid defender and a clutch shooter that placed him in the regular rotation of the Barangay Ginebra Kings. Salvacion (which when translated in English means "salvation") is one of the good shooters the PBA has produced.

Known to elevate his game during the playoffs, Salvacion's contribution was more evident during Ginebra's championship runs on the 2004–2005 and 2006–2007 Philippine Cup where he proved to be one of the key players.

On September 12, 2014, he and Jason Ballesteros were sent to Blackwater Elite in a three-way trade involving NLEX Road Warriors and Meralco Bolts. NLEX obtained Blackwater's 2016 and 2017 2nd round pick along with the draft rights for Juneric Baloria. Meralco received Sean Anthony from NLEX via Blackwater as third party.[1]

Salvacion now resides in Antipolo City along with his mother, sister and his wife.
