Last Sunday, University of Santo Tomas head coach Aldin Ayo finally spoke about the alleged Bicol bubble.
But the usually-outspoken mentor gave no details in his statement due to the ongoing investigation by the school.
“Regarding the alleged ‘bubble training’ in Sorsogon, I will not comment for now as UST is already investigating the matter as well as the IATF,” said Ayo.
“I am fully cooperating with the on-going investigations and praying that in due time, this will be properly addressed.”
The investigation ended Thursday evening. And when the decision is read on September 1, they will be ready to respond to the allegations, according to Ayo’s wife Mina Joy.
“Patapusin lang natin yung investigation. Sasagutin ko lahat ng accusations niyo — of course with bebe girl,” quipped Mrs. Ayo.
“Just be ready.”
Since CJ Cansino’s removal from the Growling Tigers last week, pictures and videos have spread across social media showing the training that took place inside the Ayo Basketball Center in Sorsogon. Those were unmarked, however.
Then just last Wednesday, Cansino released screen captures of the group chat he made with the parents of the Growling Tigers.
“Hindi po namin nagugustuhan ‘yung food dito at konti lang kasi kaya ‘yung iba sa amin, nag-oorder ng fast food,” said Cansino.
“Kaso ang problema nagkasakit ‘yung iba sa amin [tapos] sa amin sinisisi kung bakit kami nagkakasakit. Pero sa tingin namin dahil sa luto nila dahil puro pork at mamantika.”
“Sabi po sa amin ng nagluluto dito (mommy ni Tita Joy Ayo) na bago pa kami pumunta dito, may sakit na daw kami,” added Bataller, who has reportedly been sick since last month.
Spin.ph was able to interview the 21-year-old Bataller, who said that he has not been brought to a clinic for a check-up or an ultrasound.
Mrs. Ayo showed a receipt showing that they had the incoming junior checked up last August 6, though.
Speaking of Cansino’s leaks which he deleted hours later, Mrs. Ayo called him out saying, “Bakit mo dinelete? ‘Di ba may permission to post ka sa teammates mo? Very soon na ‘yung evidences with all your accusations and investigations.”
According to multiple sources, Cansino’s former teammates asked him to take the post down.
Mrs. Ayo would later take down her Instagram stories as well.
