CAGAYAN Valley coach Alvin Pua has been summoned to appear before PBA Commissioner Chito Salud after a physical contact with two referees in the Rising Suns’ recent game in the D-League Aspirants Cup.

PBA media bureau chief Willie Marcial said Pua has been invited to explain his side on Friday about an encounter that led to his ejection in Monday’s win over Jumbo Plastic Linoleum at the Marikina Sports Center.

“May contact sa isang referee, then tumawid pa sa official, tapos may contact uli sa referee,” Marcial explained.

The Rising Suns are undefeated in six games and are only a half-game behind leader Hapee in the team standings.

Cagayan Valley plays its final game before the Christmas break against Racal Motors on Monday.
