He no longer plans to return to the team as he intends to turn pro next year. https://instagram.com/p/5bFJaYB1Zv/ Last season, Van Opstal averaged close to 8 points and 6 rebounds in 13 games....

Last season was the best chance for the De La Salle - College of St. Benilde Blazers to finally break through after years of wallowing in the cellars. After years of patience we are finally witnessing the program built by previous coach Richard Del Rosario and continued the incumbent Gabby Velasco come into fruition. The Blazers started the season sluggish...

Another title to defend. Another championship lost. Two years ago, the Green Archers picked up successive championships after winning the UAAP, PCCL, and Filoil. This past year, the Archers had another type of run – they failed to defend all three titles. That’s consistency for you, although not of the desirable kind. The Green Archers fell 53-79 in the titular game, yielding...

The Green Archers have been dethroned three times in the last nine months. After failing to defend the UAAP and PCCL titles late last year, the Green Archers were once again unseated, this time in the FilOil Preseason tournament via a 53-79 beatdown at the hands of San Beda in the championship match. Jeron Teng scored 21 points on 7-of-13 shooting...

This time, Jeron Teng didn’t need to drive past two defenders for a lay-up with the time winding down and the game on the line. Jason Perkins didn’t need to use his left hand to score under the basket against a towering import to give his team the win. In La Salle’s past couple of games, they raced to...

Jeron Teng dribbled at the top of the key, Perpetual Help’s Gab Danganon in front of him. The clock read six, five, four seconds. He drove past Danganon, as if going straight to the basket. Only four days, ago, he had driven past a couple of UST defenders for a lay-up with the time expiring to send La Salle...

The De La Salle Green Archers return to action tomorrow on the opening day of the Fil-Oil Flying-V Preseason tournament. After an unsuccessful title defense in last year’s UAAP and PCCL, the team addressed their lack of depth in the backcourt and consistent outside scoring by recruiting crack guards from the high school ranks in Andrei Caracut of San Beda,...

For half of the twenty thousand or so who watched yesterday’s game live, the MoA Arena felt like the unhappiest place on earth. The Lady Spikers had all the chances not just to win a precious set, but a critical game to extend their Season 77 as well. Never mind if the team was down to just twelve players, a...

The Lady Spikers emerged from the dug-out wearing the same warm-up shirts. Emblazoned on the backs of the shirts is the same surname and jersey number, as if they were all the same person and belonged to the same family. That jersey number was 8. That surname was Galang. Ara Galang made her way to the bench with the team, moving...
