Fifteen days before the UAAP wars, heated arch-rivals De La Salle University Green Archers and Far Eastern University Tamaraws figured in a bench-clearing brawl in Davao City during the two squads’ Kidayawan Festival encounter.
The brawl happened with just 20 seconds remaining in the third frame.

In a video posted by Twitter account Animo Davao, it showed that Kib Montalbo, who had been allegedly fouled by Kenneth Tuffin on the other end, did not take too kindly too it and retaliated by shoving Fil-Kiwi. Things escalated quickly afterwards.
Axel Iñigo, who was trying to pacify the situation, was accidentally taken down by Brent Paraiso which further agitated both squads. Ron Dennison, who was said to have been ejected from the game due to being slapped with his second unsportsmanlike foul, was seen back on the court throwing punches as well.
In another video by Twitter user bucc, Barkley Ebona was seen jawing with Ricci Rivero after the latter threw the ball at him.
