Looking an unstoppable behemoth, San Beda continued its tear with a 72-58 rout of St. Benilde Tuesday for an eighth straight victory in the NCAA Season 93 men’s basketball tournament at Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan.

The win, however, was overshadowed by an endgame fracas where Carlo Young tackled a driving Robert Bolick down on a fastbreak with 2:28 left.

Things escalated quickly under the basket which led to a disqualifying foul on Young and the ejection of Bolick, who was seen retaliating by the referees during the replay, and Clint Doliguez, who entered the playing court.

After the game, a fuming coach Boyet Fernandez expressed disgust with how things were handled during the commotion as he came to Bolick’s defense.

“Where was the closed fist? Check the replay!,” he argued. “You have to see that. The other team only had one foul and we already had six fouls. Then you throw out a player that was tackled. I hope the commissioner will see that. It is unethical,” said Fernandez.

“We were up 14 points and then you tackle the other player? Why penalize that guy who did not even punch? My God, that’s wrong. I hope the commissioner will see that. It’s already a won game already.”

Bolick led San Beda with 14 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds before getting ejected, while Davon Potts had his best game this season with 12 markers, four boards, two dimes, and two steals.
