Technical difficulties during SBC-CSJL tilt hampering NCAA investigation

The results of the NCAA’s investigation regarding the heated confrontations that occurred during and after the San Beda Red Lions and Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights tilt will have to wait a little longer due to a technical difficulty according to NCAA commissioner Andy Jao.

The rivalry game which was marred numerous hard fouls and heated confrontations between players from both teams was also hampered by the effects brought about by the strong rainfall outside of the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan City. The game was even delayed twice due to a leak on the roof of the venue. Moreover, it also affected the signal from ABS-CBN’s production truck, the league’s main TV coveror, and the recording team.

“Umalis na yung team na nag-rerecord bago pa mag-halftime,” Enrico Cabulo, senior security of the Filoil Flying V Centre, told Tiebreaker Times. “Mahina daw kasi ang signal dito.”

Currently, the main television recording is the only source of material for the investigation according to NCAA Seniors Basketball Andy Jao.

“I don’t know yet,” Jao told Tiebreaker Times about the repercussions of the confrontations that occurred in Friday afternoon’s game. “We do not have a tape of the incident yet as the recorder broke down.”NCAA-92-SBC-vs.-CSJL-Balanza-Presbitero-2339 Technical difficulties during SBC-CSJL tilt hampering NCAA investigation Basketball CSJL NCAA News SBC  - philippine sports news

During the post-game, San Beda’s Junjun Bonsubre and McJour Luib had a heated confrontation and had to be separated.

The NCAA rule book prohibits bench players and personnel from entering the court during altercations.
