GLEN Rice's short, 10-minute stint in what turned out to be his final game in the PBA Governors Cup semifinals also left him poorer by P26,000.
The league on Monday fined the volatile import for infractions that led to his ejection from Game Four of TnT Katropa's best-of-five duel with defending champion Barangay Ginebra on Sunday night.
The 26-year-old son of NBA great Glen Rice was meted the penalty for shoving Kevin Ferrer and later throwing the ball at the Ginebra rookie late in the first quarter of Sunday's game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum, leading to a flagrant foul 1.
Rice was also penalized for the use of a dirty finger and for 'disrespecting team and league officials.'
The TnT import was ejected for his actions at the 1:41 mark of the first period and the Katropa on top, 35-23.
Sorely missing the offensive arsenal of Rice, the Katropa failed to hang on and lost, 115-105, to bow out of finals contention.
Sources said no one from TNT management has yet to speak with Rice, who is slated to leave the country on Tuesday.
