San Sebastian to forfeit first two wins

The NCAA has hammered down its verdict regarding its investigation into RK Ilagan’s alleged play in a “ligang labas” game last June 30.

In a statement signed by NCAA Season 94 Chairman Frank Gusi, Ilagan has been meted a three-game suspension by the league.

Moreover, the Golden Stags will have to forfeit their wins over the Saint Benilde Blazers last July 13 (85-78) and the JRU Heavy Bombers last July 24 (86-76), as Ilagan played in those games.

This will drop San Sebastian’s record to 1-8. On the other hand, JRU will raise their record to 1-6, while CSB will go up to 4-3.

According to multiple sources closely monitoring the situation, Ilagan and Letran’s Koy Galvelo 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.

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

On their end, San Sebastian will no longer be appealing the NCAA’s decision.
