NCAA indefinitely suspends John Amores

After a meeting by the investigation committee, the National Collegiate Athletic Association has slapped an indefinite ban on controversial Jose Rizal University player John Amores.

Fr. Vic Calvo, OP of Letran made the announcement on Thursday during the halftime break of the San Beda-Lyceum game at the Filoil Ecooil Centre on Tuesday.

Amores committed numerous offenses, including pointing a finger at a referee; disrespecting the ManCom representative and court officials; charging towards the bench of CSB that escalated a brawl; making provocative gestures that led to a fight; and throwing punches against four CSB players.

Meanwhile, the College of Saint Benilde’s Ladis Lepalam, along with JRU’s Jason Tan, Joshua Guiab, William Sy, Jason Celis, Marwin Dionisio, John Mark Abauag, Jonathan Medina, Karl De Jesus, and CJ Gonzales received one-game suspensions for entering the playing court without recognition by table officials.

Mark Sangco and Chris Flores of the Blazers received two-game suspensions for engaging in a fistfight. Also given two-game bans were William Sy – making his suspension three games — and Ryan Arenal for committing disrespectful acts before ManCom representatives could pacify participants.

Sy and Arenal were the players identified dancing on the court during the on-court deliberation yesterday.


JRU and CSB can still appeal the decision.
