MANILA, Philippines — Ateneo de Manila University is set to file its own letter asking the UAAP to probe into violations made by suspended players.

University of the East earlier had submitted a letter “seeking clarification of the rule” claiming that Blue Eagles head coach Bo Perasol, who was serving his one-game suspension last Sunday, violated the rule on suspended team officials after he was spotted at the premises of the Mall of Asia Arena during the Eagles 77-72 win that ended the Red Warriors’ Final Four bid.

In a letter by Ricky Palou, Ateneo’s representative to the UAAP Board, UE also violated the rule as its suspended player Ralf Olivares “was seen seated behind the UE bench” also on Sunday.


Palou said in a text message to that he will submit the letter addressed to UAAP president Fr. Maximo D. Rendon of host Adamson, Tuesday morning.

Under league rules, “a suspended athlete shall not be allowed to sit in the bench and its immediate vicinity during the period of suspension.” Violation of the rule merits a game forfeiture.

Ateneo also wants to “seek clarification” as well on several more instances where a suspended player “was seen in the immediate vicinity at times when they should have been serving a suspension.”

“In view of this, the Ateneo de Manila University (AdMU) respectfully requests that the UAAP 76 Board conduct an investigation of this matter and that the appropriate sanctions be imposed in accordance with the UAAP 76 Rules and Regulations.”


Ateneo’s win over UE may go for naught
