FORMER La Salle star playmaker LA Revilla admitted going on 'Twitter silence' since his relationship with Ateneo Lady Eagles heroine Denden Lazaro became public.

Revilla's popular tweet, “And she said YES!!” on his account @wilLAREVILLAme has piqued fans' interest on the budding romance between beloved heroes of two schools with the most celebrated rivalry in the history of college sports.

Revilla, however, said he has since hibernated on the popular social networking site in the three days since his tweet went viral, saying he simply wants to keep the relationship as low profile as possible amid the heightened interest from fans.

The 24-year-old cager also said he and Lazaro are aware that they have to deal with "odd things" as far as their relationship is concerned.

Asked by Spin.ph about the “real score” between him and Lazaro, Revilla said: “In a way, nag-alangan din ako kasi you have to consider yung mga odd things na puwede mangyari.”

For now, Revilla, who was selected 24th overall by GlobalPort in this season’s PBA rookie draft, is focusing on a new phase in his career after being released by the Batang Pier just last Monday after spending one conference with the team owned by sportsman-businessman Mikee Romero.

The crack guard played a total of just three games with the Batang Pier, averaging 0.67 points, 1.33 rebounds and 0.67 assist in 7.6 minutes during the Philippine Cup.

The former La Salle star has since hooked up with the Cagayan Valley Rising Suns in the PBA D-League, where he intends to improve on his playmaking skills in the hope of earning another shot at the pro league next season.

Revilla said that should the PBA admit at least two expansion teams in time for the league’s 40th season, he'll be more than willing to try out for a spot.

“Siyempre, for me, dream come true din yung maglaro sa PBA. At this point, ang bilis ng pangyayari because I was given a chance and experience playing in the PBA,” said Revilla, who ended his UAAP career with a championship by playing a key role in La Salle's win over University of Santo Tomas in the finals.
