THE protest filed by National University over a controversial game and possible additional sanctions on Far Eastern University enforcer Arvie Bringas are high on the agenda when the UAAP board convenes on Friday.
UAAP secretary treasurer Junel Baculi said the two major issues will be tackled and decided with finality by the board.
Baculi said the UAAP technical committee met on Thursday to discuss NU’s appeal on its protest over RR Garcia’s last-gasp layup which led to the Tamaraws’ controversial 77-75 win over the Bulldogs last Sunday.
NU elevated its case to the technical committee after UAAP commissioner Ato Badolato junked the school’s protest.
Baculi said the technical committee will reveal its decision during the board meeting. The NU athletic director inhibited himself from the voting despite being one of the members of the technical committee.
“They have a recommendation, but they wanted to reveal it sa UAAP board en banc,” Baculi said.
The UAAP official also confirmed that Bringas’ case will be brought up following the spitting incident that marred the Tamaraws’ bruising game against the Ateneo Blue Eagles last August 29.
Ateneo has asked that heavier penalties be slapped on the FEU enforcer aside from the two-game suspension imposed on him by the league and the school.
