MANILA, Philippines — Lycha Ebon was having a noteworthy rookie year for Far Eastern University when she went down with a right knee injury that abruptly ended her campaign last season.
A year later, Ebon picked up where she left off, helping the Lady Tamaraws win in just her first game back from an ACL tear.
“I’m just happy and excited to be back because I’m able to help my teammates inside the court,” Ebon said in Filipino Tuesday at the start of the UAAP Season 82 women’s volleyball tournament.
“I wasn’t able to finish the UAAP last year but coach is now giving me a chance to prove myself that’s why I’m giving my best.”
Ebon scored nine points as FEU cruised past University of the East, 25-9, 25-20, 25-17.
She hopes to continue her strong play on Sunday when FEU clashes with last year’s finalist University of Santo Tomas.
