DLSU closing in on commitment from Jrs. star Ricci Rivero
GOOD IN GREEN. As per coach Aldin Ayo, Ricci Rivero won't be wearing any other color than green.

The sky in Taft Avenue keeps on shining bright with non-stop fireworks hailing from De La Salle University.

First was a new head coach in Aldin Ayo and then came a top-tier recruit in the form of UAAP Juniors stud Aljun Melecio.

Now, DLSU is also closing in on the commitment of College of St. Benilde-La Salle Greenhills star Ricci Rivero. As Ayo told ABS-CBN Sports, “Ricci going here is almost done.”

Ricci, the younger brother of current Green Archer forward Prince, carried the Greenies to a Final Four berth in the last NCAA tournament. He led all players in statistical points, but failed to win the MVP award due to a one-game suspension early in the season.

Ayo, Melecio, and Ricci Rivero will fortify a team that already includes Mythical selection Jeron Teng, Rookie of the Year Andrei Caracut, vastly improved Prince Rivero, and incoming Ben Mbala as it gears up for a quest to get back to the Final Four next season.
