No longer a force on offense, Green Archers rely on their defense to carry them this season

With a stacked roster, the Green Archers were a fun team to watch on offense in the last two seasons. In 2016, they had a league best scoring average of 88.1 points per game - which is 22% higher...

The Man of Steel and The Man of Steal

La Salle big men dominate Orizu-less FEU, solidifies 3rd place

Taking advantage of the absence of FEU’s Prince Orizu, the De La Salle University Green Archers flexed their muscle inside the paint - on both offense and defense - to get back at their first round tormentors, 65-57, Saturday,...

Rematch Real Quick

Looking to extend their winning run to three, the Green Archers shall do battle once again with Adamson, the team they beat just a week ago in a come-from-behind-fashion. Following their loss to La Salle, one of the Adamson players...

Vintage Andrei Caracut

This season, the players that are consistently carrying much of the scoring load for the Green Archers are Aljun Melecio and Justine Baltazar. But in last Wednesday's 20-point win over the UE Red Warriors, it was different pair this...

Ripening By

I told my good friend before the start of the game, that we should use Encho Serrano extensively in this game. I didn't know, then, that he was nursing a flu. But WOW!!!! Well, let's get back to this...
