UAAP: Ateneo coach Perasol confronts heckler

MANILA, Philippines — Tempers flared even after the final buzzer on Sunday as Ateneo head coach Bo Perasol confronted a reported La Salle fan.

After the Blue Eagles’ 64-66 setback to rival Green Archers, Perasol had to be restrained by his staff and the venue’s security on his way to the dugout at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Perasol furiously reacted to alleged snide comments by a heckler, who was seated at the patron section of the Green Archers’ side at the Big Dome.

“I just gave him a piece of my mind. He doesn’t have to be there and tell me those kinds of things,” Perasol told INQUIRER.net in a phone call.

Perasol, who was called for a technical with a minute left in the game, said the supporter was “saying bad things” and singled him out.

“He was yelling things that I didn’t like. Then I heard him say Perasol,” the Ateneo mentor also said in Filipino.

“I don’t think that’s the real character of the La Sallians. Pero kung mahusay siya, magsabi siya sa harap ko. Hindi yung sa likod tapos hindi may rehas.”

Ateneo dropped to 6-5 after the setback, while La Salle claimed solo third with a 7-4 mark.

    “Salamat Bo!”

    I agree with RedvD….Bo needs to be fired or he should do the honorable thing, RESIGN!

  • RedvD

    What the heckler said was, “Thank you for giving us the win Coach Perasol!”

    Which was true because Perasol rushed to the court and earned a technical and La Salle shot 2 FTs with less than a minute left.

    If you cant handle the pressure Bobo Perasol, dont coach. You have to fire him MVP!

    If we review the tapes, we see that it was the complaint of Perasol that started this. The problem with supporters is that they see only their side. Clearly, Ateneo’s foul came first before the alleged infraction to Ravena resulting to bonus free throw that decided the game. Keep your cool coach. You don’t show your worth by acting like Jaworski. Kumita na yan.

    masyado lang naging emotional si coach at hindi na napigilang mapikon, biruin mo talo na sila (by their number one nemesis), na-technical pa siya… and then ginatungan pa ng heckler. but he should know better, ganun talaga ang miron walang patawad kahit sino. he should keep his composure and move on, plan for the next game. ilang taon naman silang nag-champion. sometimes too much pride of your institution may be damaging to your own reputation. but well, i cant blame the guy talaga sigurong naging personal na sa kanya. hindi ko rin alam kung anong gagawin if i were in his shoes at that very moment. keep calm coach! marami pang laban hindi lang yan :)
