UNIVERSITY of the East juniors basketball head coach Billy Reyes has been suspended by the school for the remainder of the current UAAP season, a source told Spin.ph.
The decision of the school also means that Reyes will be barred from sitting on the bench during games of UE's senior team, where he is one of Red Warriors coach Boycie Zamar’s assistant coaches.
A source said the suspension had something to do with a recent incident in a juniors game where Reyes, younger brother of Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes, was accused of ordering one his players to elbow an opponent.
The source also said that the incident was tackled during this week’s UAAP board meeting, although it was unclear if the allegations were proven.
However, the source said UE management took the responsibility of imposing the sanction on Reyes.
UE officials refused to comment on the issue when contacted by Spin.ph.
