Kevin Quiambao: Let’s run it back!

by Bryan Gadingan

AFTER willing the DLSU Green Archers to their first title in seven years, UAAP Season 86 MVP Kevin Quiambao has announced that he will return to the Taft-based squad next season.

Quiambao, who has three playing years left, explained on Instagram his decision to remain with the Green Archers. 

“Playing for DLSU has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. After constantly consulting my family and friends, we’re excited to run it back and try to make it B2B (back-to-back)!” said the sophomore star.

He had stated that he will take his time before deciding on his future move following a fantastic run that included winning Season MVP and Finals MVP as La Salle ended its seven-year UAAP title drought.

When asked by the media after their game, King Archer did not make a categorical statement about returning. “For now, magbabakasyon kasi ako sa Japan sa December 15. Bakasyon lang. Hindi ko pa alam,” remarked Quiambao.

The Lasallian forward was ecstatic and unable to wait before spreading the good news even before he took a much-needed break due to a rush of international attention.

In the UAAP Season 86, Quiambao averaged 16.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, 6.0 assists, 1.9 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game. He was the first UAAP player to record two triple-doubles throughout the season.

The return of King Archer undoubtedly will be a significant boost for the Taft-based club’s bid for a back-to-back title in Season 87 as key players like Evan Nelle and Mark Nonoy have already ended their collegiate basketball career.
