Former De La Salle Archer Dindo Pumaren will be coming back to his alma mater in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

Fr. Bernie Oca, the De La Salle board representative, on Monday confirmed that Dindo will suit up as assistant to his brother Franz, the Archers’ basketball head mentor. Dindo will replace Tyrone Bautista.

Neither of the two Pumarens was available for comment. Fr. Oca, however, revealed that Dindo will attend his first practice on Tuesday.

Dindo resigned as University of the East mentor last December and was replaced by Lawrence Chongson. During the 2007-2008 season, the Red Warriors posted a rare 14-0 sweep during the eliminations but Dindo and his Warriors eventually bowed to La Salle and his brother in the finals.

Despite the off-court tussle between the Pumaren brothers, UAAP fans, especially those from La Salle, are now excited over the prospect of seeing the reunion of Franz and Dindo in the Archers’ bench during the 2009-2010 season.

Dindo and Franz played together for La Salle during the 85-86 season. Franz left the Archers the following season. -GMANews.TV
