    Schedule conflict forces FEU Tamaraws to split team for PBA D-League, PCCL games

    Nov 18, 2014

    FAR Eastern University will be splitting its squad for matches in the PBA D-League and the Philippine Collegiate Champions League (PCCL) that will be held at the same time on Monday in separate venues.

    Coach Nash Racela already has a plan on which players will play where, although he hasn’t decided which side to handle. The veteran coach said FEU tried asking both leagues for a possible schedule adjustment, but neither gave way.

    The FEU-backed MJM M-Builders will have a D-League game against BreadStory-Lyceum at the JCSGO gym slated at 4 p.m., the same time the Tamaraws begin battle in the PCCL against La Salle at the Ynares Sports Arena.

    "Four o'clock, we have D-League. Four o'clock, may PCCL game ang FEU," FEU coach Nash Racela said.

    Racela said they will most likely have Mac Belo, Mike Tolomia, and the Tamaraws core play in the D-League due to the school's commitment with MJM, a production outfit.

    UAAP champion National University, which also has players in the MJM squad in the PBA D-League, also has a PCCL game at 2 p.m. against NCAA titlist San Beda.

    “Right now, ang FEU talaga committed to a partnership with MJM. If there is a team that will sacrifice, definitely it’s FEU,” said Racela.

    “Most likely, our core will play in the D-League, and the rest, sa PCCL. And we are playing La Salle,” said Racela.

    The Tamaraws are in third place with a 0-1 win-loss mark in Group B of the PCCL. The top two teams in the group advance to the semifinals.

    In the D-League, the M-Builders recently won their first game after three straight defeats to open the conference.

    Racela said the PBA D-League exposure is a great opportunity for the UAAP Season 77 runner-ups Tamaraws to gain experience as they build up for next year.

    “Like some of our players, they are comfortable in the UAAP pero sa D-League, hindi. Kailangan nilang matutunan ’yun,” said Racela.
