The one-game ban on Adeogun was issued for disrespecting game officials, his second offense this conference.
However, PCBL Commissioner Joel Banal has yet to decide on the endgame contact between Adeogun and Ferrer.
Adeogun has admitted to hitting Ferrer during the traditional handshakes, leaving the former UST star with a bloody nose.

“The incident between Adeogun and Ferrer is still under deliberation because it’s after the game,” Banal said.
Mighty Sports downed Euro-Med in the series opener, 99-84, despite missing the services of Kiefer Ravena, who is training in the US.
The two teams clash anew at 5 p.m.
