MANILA—The NCAA dropped the hammer on John Amores after he fumed too much late into the Tuesday battle between Jose Rizal University and College of St. Benilde.

The league, through a statement from Season 98 president Estefanio Boquiron, slapped the Heavy Bomber with an indefinite suspension for a bunch of violation highlighted by punching four Blazers, namely Mark Songco, Jimboy Pasturan, Taine Davis, and Migs Oczon, out of frustration.

Amores also violated some other rules like intentionally bumping and pointing a finger at a referee, disrespecting court officials including JRU's ManCom representative Paul Supan, and charging through the CSB as well as making provocative gestures to spark a brawl.

Amores was first seen talking trash to a Blazer fan before he had had enough and ran through him at the back of the CSB bench.

Songco, meanwhile, was not spared from getting sanctions as he was given a ban for two games along with CJ Flores for their involvement in the brawl.

Another JRU player, William Sy, was slapped a three-game suspension for two violations, joining a bench clearing incident and committing disrespectful acts before ManCom members while they were trying to restore order.

Ryan Arenal was also banned for two games for the same disrespectful acts.

For their own role in the bench clearing fracas, one-game suspensions were each meted to Blazer Ladis Lepalam and Heavy Bombers Jason Tan, Joshua Guiab, Jason Celis, Marwin Dionisio, Jan Abaoag, Jonathan Medina, Karl De Jesus, and Christian Gonzales.

With the development, JRU will only have six players available for its Friday game against San Sebastian at the FilOil EcoOil Centre in San Juan City.
