Only eight players will suit up for the Centro Escolar University Scorpions when they take on the Go for Gold-CSB Scratchers in a win-or-go-home quarterfinals match-up in the 2019 PBA D-League tournament, Thursday.

The Scorpions stil included in the contest are Malick Diouf, Rich Guinitaran, Jordan Intic, Joshua Abastillas, Franz Diaz, Kurt Sunga, Jerome Santos, and Dave Bernabe.

This means that the remaining players are being investigated by the school due to game-fixing. Unfortunately, they are also the heavy hitters of the Scorpions in their campaign in the second league.

These are Christian Uri, Keanu Caballero, Jan Formento, Tyron Chan, Judel Fuentes, John Rojas, and John Lisbo.

It is a saddening development for CEU, as they were one of the favorites to cop the 2019 PBA D-League championship.

The Scorpions ended the elimination round with a 7-2 record, entering the post-season sa the second seed.

According to reports, the school found out from a paper tail that the students left.

If found guilty, the student-athletes can be expelled from the school.

Head coach Derrick Pumaren added that they only wanted to field six players but were asked to field in eight to avoid a PHP 350,000 bill by the PBA.

The CEU-Go for Gold game tips off at 4:00 pm at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig City.
