After missing the last 4 games due to Dengue, guard Aljun Melecio made his return to the court last Sunday against UP. He managed to score 3 points in 10 minutes of playing time.

Prior to being sidelined, he was instrumental in the Green Archers’ first two wins, scoring a career high 29 points in their season opener against FEU.

Since this fever can really drain someone who has it, expectations were low on his comeback game and it will take time before he returns to full shape.

“Hindi pa 100 percent. Dahan-dahan lang. Hindi naman agad-agad babalik ‘yung kundisyon mo. Patient lang,”.

The 5-foot-7 Melecio admitted he felt winded late in the game against UP.

“Parang hanggang una lang, okay ‘yung katawan mo. After ilang balik, nanghihina ka na. Iba talaga,”.

Melecio said he already tempered his expectations about his play prior to the game against the Maroons.

“Actually, makapasok lang ako, solve na. Kasi na-miss ko talaga ‘yung paglalaro. Buti naman, nalagay sa court,”.

Melecio is currently working on his conditioning and is confident that he will be back to his old form soon.
