La Salle still a work in progress, says Mbala

MANILA, Philippines – De La Salle University's shock loss to University of the Philippines helped remind the defending UAAP champions that though they have been tagged as the favorites to win Season 80, they are still "a team like everyone else."

This, according to reigning MVP Ben Mbala, who saw a 34-point, 12-rebound performance go down the drain in their 98-87 loss to the Fighting Maroons last week.

La Salle's Ben Mbala fires up a jump shot against University of Santo Tomas. Arvin Lim, ABS-CBN Sports.
"It was a wake-up call," Mbala said of their defeat. "Coming off last season, being really dominant and being champions, people say we're the team to beat and all that."

"No," he emphatically added. "We're just a team like everyone else."

"UP played well, and they just reminded us that we're just a team like everyone else," he also said.
