Mbala: Archers will repeat
There will be no let up in Ben Mbala’s quest for glory for the La Salle Green Archers.
Having bagged almost every individual and team honor last year, the 6-foot-7 Cameroonian vowed to take his game to the next level as the Green Archers try to retain their UAAP championship in Season 80 late this year.
“We would like to make it back-to-back with coach Aldin (Ayo),” Mbala said Thursday after receiving the Smart Collegiate Player of the Year award from the UAAP and NCAA Press Corps during the Collegiate Basketball Awards at Montgomery Place in Quezon City.
Ayo and Jamike Jarin, the new National U coach who led San Beda to the NCAA crown, shared the Coach of the Year award.
