UAAP: La Salle guard Evan Nelle gets one game suspension
MANILA, Philippines—La Salle will clash with University of Santo Tomas on Saturday in the UAAP Season 85 men’s basketball tournament without one of its top playmakers.
Evan Nelle was slapped with a one-game suspension following an unsportsmanlike foul in the Green archers’ 86-84 loss to Adamson last Saturday at the 2:13 mark of the first quarter.
This was Nelle’s third infraction of an unsportsmanlike penalty.
The first two came during La Salle’s season opener against the University of the Philippines and the other one in the game against rival Ateneo.
La Salle (3-4) looks to gain its fourth win against the bottom dwellers Growling Tigers (1-6) without the former San Beda player.
