Gab Gamboa slapped with lifetime ban as Mapua forfeits win vs San Beda

Struggling Mapua University suffered another huge blow this NCAA Season 98.

In a statement released by GMA and NCAA Commissioner Tonichi Pujante, the bout between Mapua and San Beda University during the opening day is now forfeit.

Tiebreaker Times reported that the Cardinals fielded an ineligible player in Gab Gamboa, a cross-enrollee from St. Clare College of Caloocan during that game.

Meanwhile, the league has also decided to slap Gamboa with a lifetime ban from the league.

“The ManCom, after investigation, found out that Mapua University (MU) player Mr. Gabriel Dan Gamboa, who played last 10 September against San Beda University (SBU) where MU won, was ineligible to play,” said in the statement.

“In view thereof, as a penalty, for such a violation, MU forfeits its game against SBU. SBU, therefore, won that game.”

Gamboa logged seven minutes and 30 seconds in the Cardinals’ 66-55 win over the Red Lions. He had two points and a rebound.

With this, the Red Lions improved their slate to 4-2. On the other hand, the Cardinals are winless in six games.

Meanwhile, both Louie Sangalang and Brent Paraiso saw their suspension upgraded to two games. They will miss their upcoming clash tomorrow against Lyceum of the Philippines University.

Paraiso was punished after his post-game comments on the officiating after their match-up against Mapua University, where he was called for disqualifying foul due to an “act of violence”

“Di ko alam kung anong planeta ba tawag nung may ganon e. Sa NBA wala naman ganon e, pati sa PBA,” said Paraiso after their 67-62 win against Mapua.

Sangalang was also seen giving a middle finger while cursing at an official after he was ejected for taunting.

Another similar nature to his actions during the Mapua match will earn him a suspension for the entire season.
