La Salle's Mbala is UAAP MVP anew

Master of Mayhem Ayo's rage makes him a better coach

The Green Archers center was the runaway victor for the highest individual honor in the league after accumulating 96.58 statistical points (SPs) built around his averages of 26 points 13.1 rebounds and 2.5 blocks.

Mblala thus became the first player in the country's most prestigious collegiate league to achieve the feat since former Ateneo ace guard Kiefer Ravena, who is set to make his pro league debut this year, did the trick in 2014 and 2015.

Statistical points are computed based on points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks.

Mbala and Ravena led the Season 80 Mythical team with J-jay Alejandro of National University, the third-best player with a total of 63.85 SPs, and University of the East's breakout star Alvin Pasaol (63.42 SPs) and Ricci Rivero (56.28 SPs).

De La Salle University's Ben Mbala and Ateneo de Manila University's Thirdy Ravena (No. 0) battle for a rebound.

Kansas basketball: Devonte Graham will shine in Champions Classic
Kansas plays Kentucky and depending on which poll you look at Kansas is ranked 3rd or 4th and Kentucky is ranked 4th or 7th. That being said, it is not going to get any easier for the Wildcats , who will face the Kansas Jayhawks next.

Last season, the league ruled that only one foreign athlete should be part of the Mythical Five and if the same rule applies this season, Sarr, Gaye and Akomo will be disqualified for the honor and Rivero will get the last spot in the Mythical Five.

The Final Four, meanwhile, unfurls on Saturday with No. 2 De La Salle taking on No. 3 Adamson University on Saturday, and No.1 seed Ateneo facing No. 4 Far Eastern University on Sunday.

Juan Gomez de Liano of the University of the Philippines will be named Rookie of the Year after finishing 14th in the SPs race with 46.69 SPs (11.6 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists).

With coach Aldin Ayo fuming on the bench following a pair of controversial non-calls, Mbala and the Green Archers buckled down to work in the final two minutes and 24 seconds of the game to overhaul a seven-point deficit.

Their victory over Ateneo last Sunday completed a sweep of the second round for the defending champions, who finished the elimination round with a 12-2 win-loss slate.
