DREAM TEAM. Two DLSU Green Archers, one Ateneo Blue Eagle, one FEU Tamaraw, and one UP Fighting Maroon make up this season's Mythical 5.
Ben Mbala is, without a doubt, the top individual player in the UAAP 79 Men’s Basketball Tournament.
That doesn’t mean there haven’t been other players who have stood out, however.
Flanking De La Salle University’s Cameroonian as the league’s best players are teammate Jeron Teng and Thirdy Ravena of Ateneo de Manila University.
The three come from the two teams who are duking it out in the Finals.
Also joining them in the Mythical Team are Far Eastern University’s workhorse Raymar Jose and University of the Philippines’ emergent star Paul Desiderio.
Papi Sarr of Adamson University, who finished as runner-up to Mbala for MVP, was left out of the Mythical Team as league rules state that only one foreign student-athlete can be included.
Ravena, seventh in terms of SPs also leapfrogged sixth-placer Alfred Aroga of National University.
