Ben Mbala went home to play for his country so DLSU needs another player to step up. Lucky enough, the smallest player in their roster stepped up big time.
It’s none other than the reigning rookie of the year, Aljun Melecio. He scored a total of 29 points (20 points came from the 1st half)
DLSU led at 23 points but FEU battled their way back and trimmed the deficit to 4 points with less than a minute to play. But it is too much of a hole for them as La Salle won the game with a 5 point cushion.
Ron Dennison les FEU with 21 points while Wendellomboy and Prince Orizu chipped in 13 and 12 point each.
Andrei Caracut, Kib Montalbo, Abu Tratter and Leonard Santillan combined for 48 points to help Melecio.
