Aroga averaged 16 points and 13 rebounds in the championship series and had game-highs of 24 points and 18 rebounds in the deciding Game 3 where the Bulldogs beat the Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 75-59, before a record crowd of over 25,000 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.


The 6-foot-7 Aroga, playing in his first season, anchored NU’s league-best defense, which also carried the Bulldogs to their first title in 60 years.
