    FEU Lady Tams on brink of elimination after five won games forfeited by board

    Sep 12, 2013

    THE UAAP board officially forfeited five won games of the Far Eastern University women’s basketball team on Thursday after one its players was found to have suited up in a commercial league this season.

    The league made the decision during its regular board meeting when Vangie Soriano was discovered to have played in a tournament that was held simultaneously with the ongoing Season 76.

    Soriano was disqualified from playing this season after seeing action in a championship game of a 10-day commercial league last July 14.

    The forfeiture resulted in the three-peat seeking Lady Tamaraws dropping to an even 7-7 record for fifth place after finishing the eliminations with a 12-2 slate last Wednesday.

    The team however, is still in a precarious position in its title defense as it is currently in fifth place behind University of Santo Tomas and Adamson (7-6) going into the two teams' final game of the season.

    UST will face University of the Philippines (6-7) on Saturday, while Adamson will have a relatively strong opponent in second-running De La Salle (11-2) on Wednesday.
