PBA slaps Rice with P26K fine for Game 4 ejec­tion

Sun.Star Baguio - - PRIME SPORTS -

MANILA -- A day af­ter get­ting elim­i­nated from ti­tle con­tention in the PBA Gov­er­nors' Cup, TNT suf­fered another whammy on Mon­day.

The league slapped im­port Glen Rice Jr. with a PHP26,000 fine for the events that led to his ejec­tion in Game 4 of the semi­fi­nals against Gine­bra.

Rice was called for a Fla­grant Foul Penalty 1 af­ter shov­ing Kevin Fer­rer while try­ing to evade his de­fense.

Rice then threw the ball near Fer­rer af­ter­ward, which mer­ited him with a tech­ni­cal foul that led the ref­eree to throw him out of the game.

Be­fore that, how­ever, Rice was seen con­fronting the KaTropa's al­ter­nate gover­nor Pato Gre­go­rio and some league of­fi­cials.

As he walked out of the Smart Araneta Coli­seum in Que­zon City, he taunted some Gine­bra fans and flashed a dirty fin­ger which the PBA man­age­ment also took no­tice of. (PNA)
