As amazing as Ben Mbala was during his debut season with La Salle last year, it appears that the reigning UAAP MVP still has more to show.

Really, he's like the LeBron James of the Philippines.

Big Ben is still not in Taft to anchor the Green Archers' title defense for UAAP Season 80 but he has the perfect excuse.

He's been beastin' for his home country of Cameroon in the 2017 Afrobasket.

Making his national team debut, Mbala has been a revelation, leading his team in both points and rebounds.

In fact, Big Ben's 18.3 points per game is good for second the entire tournament and his 9.0 rebounds per outing is third overall.

More importantly, Mbala's exploits has Cameroon in the quarterfinals against defending champion Nigeria.

Check out some of his highlights below.


When he comes back to La Salle, watch out UAAP.
