John Tayongtong got the most dreaded of the sanctions slapped by the NCAA as he and 17 other players got suspensions after an endgame brawl took place between the players of the EAC Generals and the Mapua Cardinals on Monday night.

After a three-hour meeting, the NCAA management committee slapped a five-game ban on the Generals' Tayongtong for punching the Cardinals' C.J. Isit, which worsened the situation.

Hesed Gabo, who shoved Tayongtong, triggering the melee, got the stiffest of suspensions among the Mapua players as he will be out for four games.

Mapua's Jomari Tubiano and EAC's Ariel Aguilar, Jack Aruqero, Jan Jamon, and Sidney Onwubere were slapped with three-game bans each.

Cardinals Exequiel Biteng, Andoy Estrella, James Galoso, and Justin Serrano got two-game suspensions each.

Generals Manelle Quilanita, Edsel Saludo, and John Santos also got the same sanctions.

Mapua's Jerome Canaynay Darrel Magsigay, and Ronnel Villasenor; and EAC's Fau Pascual each received suspensions for a game.

Isit was staved off of sanctions along with Mapua teammates Jeson Cantos, Joseph Eriobu, and Jessie Saitanan.

EAC players Jozhua General, Ai Indin, Christ Mejos, and Jerald Serrano also did not receive bans.

With both teams only fielding four players each in their respective next games, the Generals and the Cardinals face forfeiture of their matches.

On the other hand, Commissioner Bai Cristobal also slapped suspensions and fines on referees Menard Ballecer, Cholo Caoile, and Molly De Luna for failing to control the situation.
