ManCom is wrong – Ta­mayo

Tempo - - Sports - (Jerome La­gun­zad)

Univer­sity Per­pet­ual Help owner An­to­nio Ta­mayo yes­ter­day urged the NCAA Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee to over­turn the de­ci­sion of for­feit­ing the vic­to­ries made by the school’s se­niors and ju­niors teams due to a pair of jersey blun­ders last week.

In­stead of sport­ing light jer­seys, both Per­pet­ual Help teams showed up with their dark uni­forms col­ored ma­roon. Bai Cris­to­bal, how­ever, al­lowed the games to push through by pe­nal­iz­ing the Al­tas with a tech­ni­cal foul and giv­ing their ri­vals a free throw at­tempt at the start of their re­spec­tive matches.

The Al­tas went on to de­feat the Blaz­ers, 69-65, in the se­niors di­vi­sion and their ju­nior coun­ter­parts did the same against the Gree­nies 64-60 last Tues­day, only for the ManCom to for­feit the vic­to­ries on the same night.

Ta­mayo be­lieves the ManCom “should em­power Cris­to­bal and let him de­cide any­thing re­lated to bas­ket­ball mat­ters. I be­lieve they should not for­feit the game un­der the process un­der­taken by the com­mis­sioner.”

The Per­pet­ual Help school pres­i­dent added: “They were wrong to al­low our team to play and pe­nal­ized us twice by slap­ping us a tech­ni­cal foul and gave the other team a free throw be­fore the game started and then for­feit it later.”

As of press time, the ManCom, headed by Fr. Glyn Ortega, OAR, of host San Se­bas­tian, was hold­ing an emer­gency meet­ing to ad­dress the is­sue with fi­nal­ity.
