San Sebastian College-Recoletos Golden Stags coach Egay Macaraya lashed out at San Beda College Red Lions head coach Boyet Fernandez for calling the former’s player Michael Calisaan “dirty.”

“Anong ang karapatan ni Boyet na tawagin si Michael na ganun?” demanded a furious Macaraya.

“Sinisira ni Boyet dignidad ni Michael as well as the refs and the commissioner.

“Si Boyet salita lang ng salita hindi naman nag-iisip. Dun kami naiinis! Sinisira niya reputation ni Michael,” Macaraya furthered.

This was Macaraya’s response to the claims made by Fernandez on Friday afternoon, as he accused the San Sebastian senior of making dirty plays after the Red Lions’ 76-65 win over the Golden Stags.

Calisaan was initially assessed with a disqualifying foul on San Beda’s Javee Mocon with 3:33 minutes left in the first quarter, which would have automatically ejected the former and would result in a one-game suspension for the next game. However, the game officials downgraded the call to an unsportsmanlike foul after a video review.Philippine Sports News - Tiebreaker Times Egay Macaraya responds to Boyet Fernandez's claim Basketball NCAA News SBC SSC-R  San Sebastian Seniors Basketball NCAA Season 93 Seniors Basketball NCAA Season 93 Egay Macaraya Boyet Fernandez

Calisaan had already been suspended in the first round after he was ejected for his two flagrant fouls on EAC Generals’ Sydney Onwubere.

Macaraya, however, said he has video proof to show that one of the fouls should not have been an unsportsmanlike foul that would have prevented an ejection and eventually the suspension.

“As I’ve said hindi dirty player si Michael, he is just a victim,” said Macaraya. “We provided the commissioner with proof na flop talaga yung ginawa ni Onwubere.”

Macaraya said they had kept their silence when San Beda’s Robert Bolick was suspended for an unsportsmanlike foul he was called for on Carlo Young in a game against Saint Benilde in the first round.

“Meron ba kami sinasabi? Wala kaming reklamo! Kung si Bolick pwede ba ako magsabi na dirty player siya? Kita nga sa tape na sumuntok siya,” he expressed.

And the second-year San Sebastian head coach is doing this to protect Calisaan and his team.

“Masisira team namin because of that statement na hindi naman totoo.”
