MANILA, Philippines—Eight players, including San Miguel Beer guard Alex Cabagnot, were the latest to be fined by the PBA on Wednesday,


Cabagnot was slapped with a P20,000 fine for his low blow hit on Phoenix’s RJ Jazul in the second quarter of the Beermen’s 114-91 rout of the Fuel Masters in Game 4 of the Philippine Cup semifinals Tuesday night.

The league deemed Cabagnot’s punch as a flagrant foul penalty 2 upon after the referees initially and inexplicably missed it.

The non-call drew flak on social media and irked Phoenix head coach Louie Alas.

Three other Beermen were punished with Kelly Nabong (P3,400), Arwind Santos (P1,600) and Matt Ganuelas-Rosser (P1,600) fined for picking up a technical foul each for various reasons. Nabong already has four technicals this conference.
