WATCH: UAAP Primer: La Salle Green Archers to duplicate their championship season last year

By Cris Cayanan | Updated Saturday July 12, 2014 - 10:02am

The Archers are bringing back everyone from their championship run minus Oda Tampus, Luigi De La Paz and Gab Reyes. In come Abu Tratter, Julian Sargent, Prince Rivero and Terrence Mustre.  Can I say yikes? The Archers already paraded the biggest frontline last season and that's not changing. It just got bigger. Rivero did not battle patsies in his junior days. Mustre was recruited from the US. Sargent and Tratter, well, they weren't so bad in preseason action. I don't see someone putting a hindrance on a back-to-back especially with Juno Sauler at the helm. It also helps that Yutien Andrada is returning after a redshirt season, adding more ceiling to an already gigantic frontline. With Norbert Torres and Arnold Van Opstal flanking Jeron Teng up front, the only way for the Archers to lose is to shoot horribly from the field, which is their glaring weakness. Good luck trying to get defensive rebounds from the frontline troika of Sauler and even if you goad Almond Vosotros, who has a propensity to jack it up sans bricks, to keep shooting, he'll eventually punch three to break your back.

Predicted record: 12-2
