    PBA on Scottie foul

    Scottie Thompson offensive foul Cliff Hodge

    THE PBA has reviewed the Ginebra-Meralco endgame and said the referee made the right call on Scottie Thompson’s contact with Cliff Hodge.

    The offensive foul call was made by Peter Balao, chief of the officiating crew for the game, and was confirmed by the technical committee upon review, according to deputy commissioner Eric Castro.


    “Siguro nga iba yung nakita ng referee sa nakita namin. It happens. Ganun talaga ang basketball,” Thompson said after the game.

    With the clock down to 10 seconds, Thompson had the ball on a fast break and appeared to try to create space with a stiff-arm that apparently displaced the defending player Hodge.

    Senate inquiry on Gilas

    Indonesia beats Gilas


    THE Senate wants to look deeper into Gilas Pilipinas and how it is being handled.

    With the country just a year away from hosting the Fiba Basketball World Cup and the national team struggling in international competition, five senators have called for a probe “in aid of legislation on the ways to support the Gilas Pilipinas men's basketball team."

    Senate Resolution No. 83 urges the Senate Committee on Sports to review "relevant laws and policies to ensure the optimal performance in future international sports competitions."

    It was filed by senators Bong Go, Mark Villar, Joel Villanueva, Francis Tolentino and Alan Peter Cayetano.

    Gilas Pilipinas underwent a coaching change early this year, with Tab Baldwin replaced by Chot Reyes.

    The Philippine team wound up with a silver in the 31st Southeast Asian Games in Hanoi, the first time since 1989 the country missed out on the top spot in men’s basketball in the regional competition. A revamped squad then missed the quarterfinals of the 2022 Fiba Asia Cup in Jakarta, placing ninth.


    Curiously, Sen. Sonny Angara is the SBP chairman, expected to preside over a general assembly meeting on Monday.
