UNIVERSITY of the Philippines coach Rey Madrid and Ateneo assistant coach Ricky Dandan met for the first time in the UAAP since a falling-out at the Maroons camp last year.
Dandan, the former Maroons coach who is now one of Bo Perasol's assistants at Ateneo, and Madrid didn't shake hands after the Blue Eagles defeated UP, 86-75, on Wednesday at the Mall of Asia Arena.
It was the first time Dandan met his old team after he was relieved as UP coach after two-and-a-half seasons in charge and was replaced by then-team manager Madrid.
Madrid and Dandan gave curt answers to the media afterwards.
“Ewan ko,” Madrid told reporters when asked about why they didn’t exchange handshakes with Dandan. “Baka meron pa siyang sentiment sa akin.”
For his part, Dandan said he simply didn’t see Madrid after the game.
“Hindi ko siya nakita eh,” Dandan said.
