Dennis Uy vehemently denies backing DLSU Green Archers

Last February 14, news broke out that business tycoon Dennis Uy was set to take over De La Salle University’s men’s basketball program.

However, Uy defused the rumors in a statement released on Saturday evening.

“The rumors of yours truly taking over as the new patron of the De La Salle Green Archers basketball team are untrue.

“While I am certainly a proud alumnus of De La Salle University and an avid fan and supporter of basketball, I have never been formally approached about leading the basketball program of my alma mater,” his statement read.

Uy, who graduated with a Business Management degree in La Salle back in 1993, is the owner of PBA club Phoenix Petroleum and NAASCU school Enderun Colleges.

During the UAAP Season 82 Men’s Basketball tournament, long-time backer Danding Cojuangco stepped aside as the Green Archers’ booster. Stepping up to the plate were notable alumnus Raffy Villavicencio, Terry Capistrano, and Justice Andy Reyes.

“They are more than capable of handling the team,” one of Tiebreaker Times’ sources said.

“They are definitely in control.”

Still, Uy will remain a huge fan of the Green Archers, continuing to support the team from the sidelines.

“I am proud of what the Green Archers have accomplished in the past years, and I wish them all the best in their future games. As an alumnus and a fan, I will continue to cheer Animo together with the whole Lasallian community.”
