    LYCEUM can breathe a little easier as the NCAA decided to defer until after the Season 94 finals the proceedings over several coaches’ public criticism of the league over the suspension of Pirates star CJ Perez.

    “Then afterwhich, we are putting continuance to the proceedings in the spirit of sportsmanship and with the best interest of the league.”
