DE LA Salle’s Matt Salem is not seeing action in Game One of the UAAP Season 76 men’s basketball series on Wednesday after he reportedly contracted mumps.
The Green Archers will miss Salem’s outside shooting going into the series-opener against University of Santo Tomas at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Salem converted eight triples during the regular season and averaged 2.8 points in 7.4 minutes.
The Taft-based squad is now down to just 12 men going into Game One. But despite not fielding in a full 16 players for the season, the Green Archers made it to the finals against the Tigers, who are making a return trip to the best-of-three series.
