Where were you when Ben Mbala threw down his life-changing dunk?
There are very few events in this world that can change one's life.
There's getting married, landing that big project, buying that first house.
And then there's that dunk by Ben Mbala.
Really, you should check that out, it was awesome.
It was so awesome that S+A anchor Mico Halili walked out of Mall of Asia Arena Sunday as a changed man.
Check this out.
That has been the story so far for UAAP 79, La Salle and Ben Mbala changing lives. It does not change this week.
Number of people who attended Sunday's Ateneo-La Salle game, the first for this season.
In the biggest showcase so far for UAAP 79, the Green Archers showed just how powerful they are, pounding their archrivals in the form of a 97-81 beating.
Number of steals made by La Salle against Ateneo, the most since 2003.
The Green Archers submitted their best mayhem performance to date as La Salle got its biggest win over Ateneo in 11 years.
Or since the Green Archers dominated the Blue Eagles, 94-70, back in the year 2000.
La Salle's scoring run that bridged the second and third quarters against Ateneo.
After both teams fought to a stalemate after the opening period, the Green Archers went mayhem all over the Blue Eagles and by the time the fourth quarter rolled, Taft was already up 80-58.
Number of points scored by Ben Mbala against Ateneo, his UAAP career-high so far.
The hulking Cameroonian also added 13 rebounds, five steals, and one block for good measure as La Salle swept the first round.
Life-changing dunk by Ben Mbala Sunday.
Just see for yourselves.
