As Tiebreaker Times reported earlier, a brawl between Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals Sidney Onwubere and Raymund Pascua and University of Perpetual Help System DALTA Altas’ Niko Cabiltes occurred outside of the Filoil Flying V Arena in San Juan City.

Contrary to the accounts released by witnesses, Pascua, a figure in the brawl, released a statement regarding the incident through an SMS message he sent to ABS-CBN Sports’ Norman Riego.

Pascua started his statement with him and Sidney Onwubere leaving the arena. “Kasi po kanina papunta na kaming bus then naglalakad po kami ni Sidney. Palabas palang kami ng Arena, sa may pinto palang po, kita na namin sila inaabangan kami. Siyempre po di namin pinansin baka may inaantalaga silang teammate nila kaya di ko namin pinansin. Then, paglabas namin diretso lang po kami tapos nakayuko lang kami ni Onwubere.”

Then, the commotion, according to him, started when the Perpetual players mocked them. “Tapos ang dami na po nilang sinabi na mayabang daw kami tsaka ano daw ba problema namin eh naglalakad ng nga lang po kami ng nakayuko.”

He then mentioned last year’s incident with Mapua that gave them a lesson with regards to “extra-curricular” affairs both off and on the court. “Siyempre po, we’ve learned our lessons na po last year, about dun sa fight.”

Arthur dela Cruz, the father of San Beda Red Lion Art dela Cruz, saw what transpired according to Pascua. “Even po yung daddy ni Arth dela Cruz nakita niya po lahat ng pangyayari. He shouted ‘inaano niyo pa yang mga bata tinalo niyo na nga ginaganiyan niyo pa.’ So even others po saw na we didn’t start it.”

“We just defended ourselves lang po. Siyempre turo samin ng coach [Andy de Guzman] namin matuto kaming tumanggap ng physical sa loob ng court pero pag outside na po iba na pong usapan yun. Kawawa naman po kami pag di kami lumaban. Talo na nga po kami tas gaganunin pa kami. Double black eye po kami talo na nagkaganun pa po,” Pascua closed.
