Bringas suspended anew as Far Eastern U battles La Salle SundayBy Celest R. Flores
MANILA, Philippines –Far Eastern University’s bruiser Arvie Bringas will be missing the clash against La Salle Sunday after he was slapped with another two-game by UAAP commissioner Ato Badolato.
In only his first game back after serving his previous two-game ban, Bringas was again called for an unsportsmanlike foul for elbowing UP’s Diony Hipolito last Thursday in FEU’s 67-63 win.
It prompted Badolato to mete out another set of suspensions against Bringas on top of what he was given previously Bringas by UAAP and FEU management for spitting on the Ateneo bench two weeks ago.
The Tamaraws are shooting to strenghten its hold of the second spot following University of Santo Tomas’ loss Saturday to Ateneo when they battle another final four hopeful — the Green Archers at 4 p.m.
Bringas is expected to come back for the Tamaraws in the final four clashes after the controversial FEU-NU rematch on September 23.
Compounding FEU’s suspension woes is a one-game ban on forward Rey Mark Belo and a warning on Roger Pogoy for their rough plays against the Maroons.
UP, on the other hand, hopes to conclude its season with its second victory as it battles NU, which is holding on to the fourth spot, at 2 p.m. at the Mall of Asia Arena.
