Ayo proud Archers ‘did dishes’ instead of ‘throwing party’

PROUD PARENT. Aldin Ayo loved seeing "mayhem" in full effect even without him.
Aldin Ayo has had his fair share of San Beda-Letran moments in the NCAA, but he still has to wait for his first Ateneo-La Salle moment in the UAAP.
Serving his one-game suspension, the De La Salle University mentor was not in the venue of their rivalry game with Ateneo de Manila University last Sunday.
Despite his absence, however, the Green Archers made quick work of their archrivals to the tune of a 97-81 rout.
Seeing – on television, that is – how his boys took care of business and still imposed “mayhem” even without him, Ayo didn’t mince words in expressing his pride. “Mag-isa lang ako dun sa kitchen (sa dorm) and pinapanood ko lang yung mga bata. You become proud kasi even without you, yung mga bata ay performing,” he shared.
He then continued, “Yun naman yung sistema namin.”
As he is wont to do, the one-time NCAA champion coach waxed philosophical in further discussing his pride for his boys. “Sabi ko nga sa kanila, ‘You were left alone in your house and what were you going to do? Are you going to throw a party because your parents are not there or are you going to do the dishes, clean the house, and be responsible?’”
He then continued, “Good thing they were responsible and they have proven that they are really responsible individuals.”
