Ben Mbala chose to continue and play for La Salle when the Green Archers secure their crown in the forthcoming Araw ng Dabaw Invitational basketball tournament instead of trying out for the Cameroon National Team.
SBP (Samahang Basketball ng Pilipinas) board of trustee’s member, Glenn Escandor, on Tuesday disclosed that the forceful 6-7 Cameroonian will come back to play for defending champion The Royal Mandaya Hotel-City Mayor’s Office DLSU Green Archers.
Ben Mbala who was a main factor in La Salle’s title win at the just concluded UAAP wars, was recently reported to have received a call up for Cameroon national team duty. However, the godfather of La Salle basketball team, Danding Cojuangco was able to persuade Mbala to remain with DLSU.
The Araw ng Dabaw Invitational Basketball tournament is endorsed by the SBP.
