    FAR Eastern University coach Nash Racela played down the exchange of words between teammates Anthony Hargrove and Carl Bryan Cruz that took place during a crucial stretch of the third quarter in the decisive Game Three of the UAAP men’s basketball Finals on Wednesday.

    “Brotherly love,” said Racela. “Linabas na namin para mag-usap sila. It happens.”

    Hargrove and Cruz were seen talking face to face midway through the third quarter of the match before teammates stepped in to break the two apart. What both players were arguing about remained unknown.

    Shortly after the incident, the Bulldogs went on a 10-0 run to post a 49-35 lead they held till the end to win the championship and end the school’s 60-year title drought.

    Cruz finished with four points on 1-of-6 shooting from the field, while Hargrove only had two points before fouling out late in the game.

    Hargrove also had the unenviable task of containing NU counterpart Alfred Aroga, who eventually was named Finals Most Valuable Player after a 24-point, 18-rebound effort in the Game Three win.
