HEAVY LOAD. Ben Mbala and Jeron Teng find themselves among the league-leaders in scoring.
Tab Baldwin’s claim that Jeron Teng and Ben Mbala are the “two best players in the UAAP” may have just been proven correct – in terms of scoring, at least.
De La Salle University’s dominant duo have emerged as two of the top three leading scorers after the first round of the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
Cameroonian Mbala is the number one scorer with 20.7 points per game while team captain Teng is the third-ranked scorer with 16.3 points per game.
Sandwiched between the Green Archers is Paul Desiderio of the University of the Philippines who is a surprising second with 17.6 points per game.
Rounding out the top five are Adamson University rookie stud Jerrick Ahanmisi and Maroons’ captain Jett Manuel.
