Aljun Melecio isn’t going anywhere.

The explosive guard assured the La Salle community that he will stick with the team.


“I am not leaving DLSU. The tiger emojis tweet had no meaning behind it,” Melecio, the UAAP Season 79 Rookie of the Year, posted.

Melecio caused confusion over social media after tweeting tiger emojis Wednesday morning. He has since deleted the tweet.


Reports said Aldin Ayo, who is transferring from La Salle to University of Santo Tomas, is looking to bring some of his players to España.

Melecio, though, quickly ended speculations on Twitter.

“I wish Coach Aldin all the best, but I love La Salle and I love being a Green Archer,” said Melecio, a former UAAP juniors MVP.

Melecio’s pronouncement is a welcome news for the Green Archers following Ayo’s departure and two-time UAAP MVP Ben Mbala, who opted to turn pro in Mexico.
