Kevin Alas busted lip
Kevin Alas is quick to move on.
Alas went gave Hodge a piece of his mind, then was quick to let go.
"Sabi ko lang lang sa kanya 'I feel that's not a basketball play.' E, di naman siya nagsasalita," said Alas.
NLEX won, 90-75.
Coach Yeng Guiao called it a “cheap shot”
“Naka-mask na nga si Kevin, alam natin may fracture sya sa ilong. Parang sinadya ni Cliff Hodge e,” said Guiao.
“Pero, kasama ’yun sa emotion, naintindihan din namin yun. Gusto nilang manalo, gusto din naming manalo.”
Guiao, Black altercation
Yeng Guiao and Norman Black clash during the game but shake hands after the final buzzer.
The two coaches were assessed technical fouls after a verbal tussle in the third period following a clash between Aaron Black and Michael Miranda.
Guiao declined to discuss what was said during the altercation as he played down the incident.
“The emotions with coach Norman, he knows me and I know him. He is able to tolerate some of my antics and after the game, that’s all over. Pinagpapasensyahan niya lang talaga ako kaya okay lang ‘yun,” said Guiao.
Black also refused to dwell on it.
“Nothing much,” said Black. “You saw what happened. We shook hands when the game is over. We left it on the court.”
