Valencia City, Bukidnon native Aljun Melecio will now be leading De La Salle University as it debuts in UAAP Season 82 today against arch-rival Ateneo de Manila University. The 5’8 spitfire guard is the smallest man on the Green Archers’ retooled 2019 roster which includes former Corpus Christi standout Joel Cagulangan.
A former Rookie of the Year winner, Melecio is now in his 4th and probably final year and his scoring prowess is expected to carry the load for the Green Archers.
So, if you’ll be watching the game on TV later, cheer on Melecio, Bukidnon’s pride.
