NCAA extends suspension on Cabiltes, Pascua after post-game mayhem

By Ivan Saldajeno

SAN JUAN, MM--A day after the NCAA slapped Perpetual Help's Niko Cabiltes and EAC's Raymund Pascua with respective one-game suspensions for their part in a commotion late in their Tuesday game, the league handed them a two-game ban each for their post-game rumble outside the FilOil Flying V Arena.

The sanction was announced moments before the also-ran Generals will take on fellow eliminated side Lyceum Pirates on Thursday.

Effectively, Pascua will miss the remainder of the NCAA season as EAC only has three games left in its schedule beginning with the Lyceum game.

Perpetual Help, on the other hand, will actually be two men down in the next couple of matches as Nestor Bantayan was also meted with a two-game suspension for getting involved in the commotion.

Bantayan claimed that he was only there to pacify the situation.

Sidney Onwubere, meanwhile, also got a one-game suspension for his part in the fracas, and he will only miss Thursday's affair.

The NCAA spared G.J. Ylagan and Flash Sadiwa from suspensions, but both Altas were given stern warnings.
