PBA: Last Manila Clasico for 2019?

There's still a lot going on in the 2019 PBA Governors' Cup but at least for this upcoming week, all eyes will be on defending champion Magnolia and Barangay Ginebra. Oh yes, it's Manila Clasico time. 2019 has spoiled us with Clasico games and this upcoming one might be our last for the year. This might be the best one too. The Hotshots famously ended Ginebra's two-year title reign last year, with Romeo Travis scoring an even 50 in the decisive Game 4 of the semifinals. Safe to say Justin Brownlee and the rest of the Gin Kings still remember that game. Here's the rest of the PBA schedule to look forward to this week:    Oct. 16 @ Ynares Antipolo 4:30 p.m. Columbian vs. NLEX 7: 00 p.m. Blackwater vs. Magnolia Oct. 18 @ Ynares Antipolo 4:30 p.m. Meralco vs. Blackwater 7:00 p.m. TNT vs. Alaska Oct. 20 @ the Big Dome 4:30 p.m. Columbian vs. San Miguel 6:45 p.m. Magnolia vs. Ginebra     — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

UAAP Commissioner reduces Perasol s suspension

University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Basketball Commissioner Jensen Ilagan lifted the third and final game suspension imposed on University of the Philippines head coach Dolreich "Bo" Perasol. This comes after a meeting between Perasol and Ilagan last Saturday, October 12 in which the Fighting Maroons mentor expressed his sincerest apologies to the league, more importantly, to referee Jaime Rivano. "Last Saturday was the first time our office heard directly from Coach Bo and we appreciate his sincerity and evident humility in expressing his regret regarding the incident between him and referee Rivano which happened last September 29," said Ilagan. "Coach Bo emphasized how he deeply regretted his actions towards the official and extended his apology towards the UAAP Board, organization, and the entire community." With this, Perasol will make his return to the sidelines when UP takes on University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday, October 16 at 4:00 pm, SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. The league, on the other hand, supports Ilagan's decision in lifting the ban on Perasol. "The UAAP, through the Board of Managing Directors and Board of Trustees, maintains that it will support and respect the Office of the Commissioner with regard to any technical concern," said Executive Director Rebo Saguisag. "It is also well within the Commissioner's power to reconsider on the ground of newly discovered evidence and/or developments such as availing in this case." During UP's game versus Ateneo back in September 29, Perasol was handed two technical fouls with 6:23 left in the third quarter of the contest. Perasol displayed "continuous flagrant acts of aggression" towards Rivano. This resulted in a three-game ban. Ilagan reminds all the members of the community to exert restraint and discipline, not just towards officials but to everyone on the court. "Mr. Perasol and every member of the UAAP are hereby reminded that any further unsportsmanlike acts on their part will be dealt with the full extent of the league," said Ilagan. The league is calling on the community to continuously strive for improvements moving forward. "Nevertheless, the parties recognize that there will always be room for improvement in the area of officiating which needs the full cooperation of everyone involved, particularly the coaches, players, and officials," shared Saguisag. "With the foregoing, let us all move on from the incident and focus on the game and the student-athletes.".....»»
