Mason Amos apologizes for handling of transfer to La Salle: ‘A personal decision’

Mason Amos broke his silence four days after his transfer to De La Salle University.

The 19-year-old Fil-Australian is currently in Latvia with Gilas Men for the FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament 2024-Riga.

And he confirmed the allegations raised by his former teammates at Ateneo de Manila University that the team was not informed of his decision to leave the school last Monday.

Amos took responsibility for it, apologizing to the community in a heartfelt post on X.

“It’s been a tough week with a decision I made due to personal reasons. However, my actions were unacceptable and uncalled for,” he said.

“Although I did mention the offer to the management, they weren’t informed about my final decision, nor were my teammates, because I felt it was a personal decision for me and my family.”

The 6-foot-7 forward was coming off a stellar rookie year with the Blue Eagles, averaging 8.87 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

He was viewed as the cornerstone of the rebuilding Ateneo basketball program along with Jared Bahay.

Now, he has moved to the Green Archers camp and will begin his residency this year.

He hopes for understanding for his move.

“I apologize for not being considerate. To my teammates, coaches, the community, and the alumni, I am sorry for my actions and I will own up to a mistake that could’ve been handled better. I don’t expect forgiveness, but I hope for understanding,” he expressed.

“I do love Ateneo and wish all the best for everyone.”
