IT S FINAL: No sanctions for Perpetual in ligang labas issue

The NCAA has “sternly warned” University of Perpetual Help about the “infraction” it incurred at the midway mark of the Season 94 Men’s Basketball Tournament. “The Policy Board resolves to reprimand and sternly warn (Perpetual) that a similar infraction shall be dealt with severely,” the league said in a memo issued on Friday. #NCAASeason94 Management Committee statement on the issue regarding the residency of some Perpetual players. pic.twitter.com/9L9C1yR59E — Normie Riego (@riegogogo) Oktubre 26, 2018 Three weeks ago, a report first broken by Christian Jacinto of spin.ph found out that Perps’ lead guard Edgar Charcos, versatile forward Kim Aurin, and key reserves Kyt Jimenez and Tonton Peralta played in a commercial league last year. The four reportedly played for the Las Pinas Home Defenders in the Metro Basketball Tournament a year ago. According to sources closely monitoring the situation, NCAA rules on residency is understood to be like this – a player undergoing residency is only allowed to see action in another league if he will still be representing the school. After the investigation, however, the league has apparently determined that the Las Pinas Home Defenders is a school-based squad. “The Policy Board resolves that Perpetual has fielded a school-based team in joining a non-NCAA league,” the memo said. As such, the Altas have committed no infraction and will be able to play in the Final Four without any issues from here on out. As of press time, they are dueling with defending champion San Beda University. --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
