Expect the ‘unpredictable’ from La Salle Green Archers

Coach: Aldin Ayo
Last Season: 13-1 (Champions)
Holdovers: Ben Mbala, Aljun Melecio, Kib Montalbo, Ricci Rivero
Additions: Santi Santillan
Key Losses: Jeron Teng, Jason Perkins, Julian Sargent, Thomas Torres

Despite losing a big chunk of its core from the champion team last year, La Salle remains as formidable as ever.

The Green Archers are the consensus team-to-beat this UAAP season 80 and for good season with reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player Ben Mbala still leading the fight.

But coach Aldin Ayo  doesn’t want to rely on just Mbala alone as he posed a challenge for the rest of the Green Archers to step up and fill the shoes left by their seniors.

“We suffered big losses with the graduation of our veterans. Now, we’re a younger team, but I’m expecting my second stringers last year to respond to their bigger roles because they have bigger responsibilities now,” he said. “As much as possible, we want to be unpredictable. We have 14 guys who are capable of playing so whoever is hot, that’s where we’ll go.”
