MANILA - After leading the DLSU Green Archers to its 7th win against the UST Growling Tigers last Saturday that secured the Green Archers for their Final Four slot, Aljun Jay Melecio finally got his first ever after three years of playing for green and white as he became the Chooks to Go Collegiate Sports Press Corps Player of the Week.
The Green Archers guard tied his season high 22 points with five rebounds and six assists. He also shot six triples beyond the arc.
"Actually, every game naman, ganoon ako. Binibigay ko 100 percent ko. Di lang dahil si coach Aldin (Ayo) kaya ganito. Every game, binibigay ko talaga best ko."
Behind Melecio's heavy performance, the DLSU Green Archers are now in solo third in the standings and still have three games left against NU, Ateneo and UP before they enter the Final Four of the UAAP Season 81.
Melecio top UP Fighting Maroons' Bright Akhuetie and Ateneo Blue Eagles' Isaac Go in the weekly citation headed by prints and online scribes.
