UAAP suspends Perasol, bans Atayde
MANILA, Philippines - The UAAP Board has suspended Ateneo de Manila University coach Bo Perasol for one game for his involvement in a near scuffle after a loss to De La Salle University last Sunday, September 1.
Perasol charged into the stands after the game, apparently to vent his ire on a La Sallian heckler who repeatedly shouted at him while the coach was on his way to the dugout.
The Green Archers fan was later identified as JJ Atayde, who will also be banned from watching UAAP basketball games for the rest of the season.
Atayde's brother Tony is also in danger of facing a ban, but the Board is still waiting for his explanation before handing a verdict.
Blue Eagles team manager Paolo Trillo told Rappler on Monday, September 2, that Ateneo will abide by the UAAP's decision on Perasol's case.
Perasol will be missing Ateneo's game against University of the East, whose player, Charles Mammie, will be back in action today after the Board downgraded his two-game suspension to one. - Rappler.com
