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.
