Pinatawan ni University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Basketball Commissioner Jensen Ilagan ng 1 game suspension si UE Red Red Warriors Nick Abanto tapos itaas sa second unsportsmanlike foul ang non-call sa laro ng team kontra Ateneo Blue Eagles nito Linggo.
Unang unsportsmanlike foul ni Abanto ang 2:03 ng 4th quarter kaya dinagdag na UF natapatan siyang masususpinde sa next game ng Warriors ngayong Miyerkoles kontra Far EasternTamaraws.
May 6:33 sa 1st quarter, binigyan ng braso ni Abanto sa muhka si William Navarro ng ADMU ngunit ‘di natawagan ng referees.
“Upon multiple reviews of the incident, we saw that there was intent by Mr. Abanto to hit Mr. Navarro that caused him to fall and eventually be carried off the playing court,” pahayag ni Ilagan. “The action was unprovoked and his intention to hurt was apparent. Therefore, an unsportsmanlike foul shall be assessed against him.” (JAT)
