Three players have been suspended due to the on-court confrontation that occurred during the University of Perpetual Help DALTA System Altas and the Emilio Aguinaldo College Generals last September 22.

During the last few minutes of the game, with Perpetual holding a 30-point margin, Perpetual’s Niko Cabiltes and EAC’s Rico Diego, together with Raymund Pascua, were all ejected after Cabiltes and Diego shoved each other after a rebound play while Pascua instigating a fight instead of pacifying the situation.

This resulted to the three student-athletes being handed a one-game suspension.
