McJour Luib enjoyed a triumphant reunion with mentor Aldin Ayo at powerhouse La Salle—and not at their alma mater Letran.
The Green Archers gave Luib a victorious debut as their new assistant coach on Saturday behind a 91-85 win over the Adamson U Soaring Falcons in the UAAP Season 79 men’s basketball tournament at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Luib added he’s glad that he’s going up against some familiar faces at La Salle—not as fierce rivals but great competitors during their practice.
“‘Yung respect naman andyan. Parang kahit magkakalaban kami dati, ngayon magkakampi na,” said the proud Cagayan de Oro City native. “Ginagawa ko lang, lalo sa practice, ‘yung mga pinapagawa niya. Tini-treat ako ni coach Aldin na player, kasi nakiki-scrimmage ako.” – By Jerome Lagunzad
