For the first time in a year, Lycha Ebon donned the green and gold jersey once more.
In her much-awaited return from an ACL injury that sidetracked her promising career several months ago, the 5-foot-8 sophomore gave a glimpse of her deadly form.
She let loose nine points, ably contributing in a balanced FEU thrust which torched UE in straight sets.
Admittedly, Ebon is well aware that there’s still plenty of ground for her to cover, especially in the mental aspect of her game.
“Siguro po meron pang kaunti,” she responded when asked about any post-injury trauma.
“Pero siyempre, hindi ako papadala doon.”
But as capable as she has been in facing the adversity in her lonesome, Ebon feels grateful that FEU and her coach, George Pascua, are giving her the push that she needs.
For that, she vows to give it her all.
“Ngayon, eto na binigyan ako ng chance ni coach na patunayan ‘yung sarili ko,” she bared.
“Kaya bibigay ko na ‘yung best ko.”
It was an impressive return game for someone who has suffered a gruesome, career-altering injury. But more than anything, she’s relishing her time back on the court in a bid to help her sisters-in-arms.
As she put it, “Masaya then excited kasi natutulungan ko na ulit sila ate sa loob ng court kasi last year hindi ko natapos ‘yung UAAP.”
