RK Ilagan, Koy Galvelo being investigated after allegedly playing in ‘ligang labas’


In another blow to the already-struggling San Sebastian College-Recoletos Golden Stags, RK Ilagan is being investigated for playing in a game without the permission of his school. Also caught playing was Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights rookie Koy Galvelo.

For their part, both student-athletes have admitted to what they did, said Tiebreaker Times’ sources.

According to multiple sources closely monitoring the situation, the two played in a tournament called Bobby Taboho Cup in Tandang Sora, Quezon City. The game took place last June 30 – a day after the NCAA held their eligibility meeting.

As a precaution, Ilagan – who averaged 13.8 points, 3.6 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in the five games he played – was not fielded by the Golden Stags in their game against the EAC Generals, Friday afternoon.

On the other hand, Galvelo, a rookie, has yet to be fielded by the Knights this season as a team-imposed punishment.

If proven true, San Sebastian will forfeit the results of their first five games – two of which were wins.

Letran, on the other hand, will most likely not suffer any repercussions as Galvelo has yet to play.

Moreover, the two student-athletes will be suspended for three more games after the decision has been made.

Both San Sebastian head coach Egay Macaraya and Management Committee representative Fr. Glyn Ortega, OAR refused to make a comment, waiting for the NCAA chairman’s decision.
