La Salle's Melecio looks forward to return in UAAP second round

MANILA, Philippines – After missing their last three games due to dengue, reigning Rookie of the Year Aljun Melecio is hoping he can make his return to the De La Salle University Green Archers on Wednesday.

Melecio sat out La Salle's victories over University of Santo Tomas and University of the East last week, and their loss to Ateneo de Manila University on Sunday.

The guard was actually cleared to play against the Blue Eagles, but was held out as he is still getting his conditioning back.

"'Yung conditioning ko, kailangan pang ihabol kasi mahirap biglain 'yung katawan," he explained.

The Green Archers missed Melecio and his three-point shooting prowess on Sunday, as they made only six of 23 attempts against the Blue Eagles.

"Gusto ko nang magbihis para makatulong man lang, kasi sobrang helpless ako kanina," said Melecio. "Gusto ko na bumalik as soon as possible."
