MANILA, Philippines — L-Jay Gonzales missed Far Eastern University’s UAAP Season 84 men’s basketball debut due to a sprained ankle he sustained in practice.

FEU head coach Olsen Racela bared Gonzales was a game-time decision after hurting his ankle in training two days ago.

Racela opted not to field in the 5-foot-10 guard in the Tamaraws’ dominating 76-51 win over the University of Santo Tomas Growling Tigers on Saturday at Mall of Asia Arena.

“L-Jay sprained his ankle two days ago. He was a game-time decision. But when we got that lead, we decided not to use him anymore to give him more rest for our upcoming games,” explained Racela on Gonzales’ absence.
