For second straight year, 'Big Ben' is UAAP MVP

MANILA, Philippines – For the second consecutive season, De La Salle University star Ben Mbala is the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the UAAP.

Mbala was the runaway leader in statistical points after playing in 12 of La Salle's 14 games, having missed their first two contests of Season 80 to compete for Cameroon in the FIBA Afro Basket.
