Ben Mbala leaves La Salle -- 'toughest decision I've made'

MANILA - Two-time UAAP MVP Ben Mbala, who led La Salle to the 2016 championship, has officially announced he is leaving the Green Archers.

"After five years of . . . countless unforgettable moments, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that the time has come for me to move on from De La Salle University and the Green Archers," Mbala said in a statement he released on Instagram Friday, where he also thanked the school and his supporters.
