AVO super confident La Salle will make UAAP Season 79 Finals
Arnold Van Opstal, a one-time UAAP champion for La Salle back in 2013, is certain the Green Archers will make the Finals for Season 79.

Former Green Archer Arnold Van Opstal has yet to watch a La Salle game live in Season 79.

However, count on him to be a the venue once the Green Archers make their triumphant return to the UAAP Finals.

Oh yes they'll be there.

Despite losing to rival Ateneo in the second round Sunday, La Salle is only at least one win of having Mayhem debut in the UAAP Finals.

At 12-1 and assured of a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four, the Green Archers can make the Finals with one victory even if they happen to lose to defending champion Far Eastern University in their last elimination assignment.

Of course, should they beat the Tamaraws, they enter the playoffs as the number 1 seed.

And AVO, drafted by the San Miguel Beermen in the PBA via Gilas Pilipinas, will be there to support his alma mater.

"I haven't watched live but I will as soon as the Finals hit," Van Opstal told ABS-CBN Sports.

Asked if he thinks the Green Archers have what it takes to make it all the way to the titular showdown, the 2013 UAAP champion threw the question right back.

"Do you think they'll make the finals?" Van Opstal asked with a laugh.
