IT seems all’s well that ends well at the camp of Emilio Aguinaldo College as the basketball team and management have made a huge step in ironing out differences that has hounded the school’s varsity program this NCAA season.

Speaking for the first time about the issue, Generals coach Gerry Esplana confirmed his entire team, composed of 13 players and five coaches, sat down with school president Dr. Jose Paulo Campos on Saturday to sort out the internal matter regarding claims on negligence by team management.

EAC vice president for external affairs Joseph Noel Estrada earlier said the school will look into players’ claims that they failed to receive food and beverage supply for two months from management, led by team manager Estifanio Boquiron and management committee representative Marlon Carlos.

Esplana expressed confidence the issue will find a resolution.

“Parang sa tahanan lang yan. Kahit sa pamilya, mayroong konting tampuhan, pero naaayos rin within the family,” Esplana told Spin.ph. “Positive kami lahat.”

The Generals, who are in their final probationary year seeking to become a regular member in the country’s oldest collegiate league, still have one game remaining in their schedule.

But the San Marcelino-based dribblers, already mired at the bottom with only four wins to show in 17 games, will have to face San Sebastian on Monday with just five players in tow due to ongoing suspensions to the rest of the squad.

“This might be a forgettable tournament, but watch out for next year,” Esplana said. “We look forward to a better year.”
