TNT import Rice slapped with P26,000 fine

/ 06:32 PM October 09, 2017


The end of Glen Rice Jr.’s first PBA stint went from bad to worse as the league fined him P26,000 for his actions in Game 4 of TNT’s semifinals series against Ginebra on Sunday.

The high-scoring KaTropa import was meted the collective sum following his unsportsmanlike actions against Gin Kings rookie Kevin Ferrer in the first quarter.


Rice was attested with a flagrant foul penalty one for shoving Ferrer and was immediately handed a technical for throwing the ball at the fallen forward.
But he refused to be restrained as he continued to trashtalk with the other team as the league’s review saw him flash a dirty finger and disrespecting team and league officials.

Rice was tossed at the 1:14 mark of the first period and immediately left the venue before the halftime break.
TNT lost, 105-115, to end its season.

Rice averaged 31.3 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 5.2 assists in his stint for the KaTropa this conference.
