2 Tamaraws in dope bust dodge boot


THE TWO Far Eastern University basketball players recently arrested for possession of marijuana no longer face expulsion after testing negative in a drug test the school conducted on all its student-athletes.

But an FEU official said Anthony Hargrove, the Tamaraws’ American import, and Adam Mohammed, a Canadian who is part of the school’s Team B, still need to undergo a school investigation.

The Manila police arrested Hargrove and Mohammed around midnight Tuesday last week after marijuana was found in their pockets.

Both players were detained for three days at the Manila Police District Station 4 in Sampaloc, but were later released due to “insufficient evidence.”

“The results were negative, but they still face disciplinary action,” Anton Montinola, FEU’s representative to the UAAP board, told the Inquirer yesterday. “We’ve also required all our athletes to go through a drug test.”

Meanwhile, the UAAP is set to implement a two-year residency rule for high school players transferring to another member-school in college.

The development came following the recruitment tug-of-war between FEU and Ateneo which both sought the services of FEU high school star Jerie Pingoy.

“It’s up to him if he wants to stay in Ateneo or come back to FEU,” Montinola said of Pingoy, the back-to-back UAAP juniors MVP.

Last October, Pingoy’s father Jerry told the Inquirer that “one million percent” his son will transfer to Ateneo for college.
