PBA Governors Cup chronology
PBA conference chronology

The 1995 Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Governors Cup was the third and last conference of the 1995 PBA season. It started on September 29 and ended on December 19, 1995. The tournament is an Import-laden format, which requires an import or a pure-foreign player for each team.

Format[edit]

The following format will be observed for the duration of the conference:

  • The teams were divided into 2 groups.
  • Teams in a group will play against each other once and against teams in the other group twice; 10 games per team; Teams are then seeded by basis on win-loss records. Ties are broken among point differentials of the tied teams. Standings will be determined in one league table; teams do not qualify by basis of groupings. [1]
  • The top five teams after the eliminations will advance to the semifinals. [2]
  • Semifinals will be two round robin affairs with the remaining five teams. Results from the eliminations will be carried over. A playoff incentive for a finals berth will be given to the team that will win at least five of their eight semifinal games. [3]
  • The top two teams (or the top team and the winner of the playoff incentive) will face each other in a best-of-seven championship series. The next two teams (or the loser of the playoff incentive and the fourth seeded team) dispute the third-place trophy in a best-of-three series.
