NCAA caging likely to be scrapped


08/24/2007

A ranking official of the beleaguered National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) yesterday revealed plans by the management committee (Mancom) to scrap the league’s ongoing 83rd basketball season if San Beda College will contest its decision to suspend its ace player Yousif Aljamal for joining the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) rookie draft last Sunday.

According to the source, the eight-man NCAA Mancom which advice the league’s policy board consisting of presidents and rectors of all participating schools, will not hesitate taking that drastic action to put an end to what the source branded as “a hostile reaction” by the Red Lions’ management on Aljamal’s suspension.

The “suggestion,” the source said, was made during one of their recent meetings.

San Beda, led by its rector and president Fr. Mateo de Jesus, sought a 72-hour Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) from the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 33 after the NCAA policy board suspended Aljamal for the rest of the season for joining the PBA draft. The NCAA Mancom, however, shortened Aljamal’s suspension to just three games, but De Jesus and his battery of lawyers averted this by securing a TRO.

Also, he claimed that although the league knows the repercussions of such plan, including the possible withdrawal of advertisers and its broadcast partner, cancellation of the season remains as the only solution to impede San Beda from bringing the Aljamal case to court. He said such action will derail the operations of the country’s oldest collegiate league.

And it seems the league is headed toward that direction as De Jesus admitted San Beda lawyers are going to ask for an extension of the TRO which expires today.

De Jesus claimed that even if the league calls off all games, San Beda officials believe they are standing on high legal ground and the series of unfortunate events that rocked the NCAA “is not our fault.”

De Jesus also stressed that taking the case to court is their legal right and nobody, even the league, can take that away from them. He also said it will not have any direct impact on their relationship with the league.

“We don’t regret any of our actions, especially bringing the case to the court,” De Jesus said, guaranteeing that the school won’t be the first to blink in this latest controversy that rocked the country’s oldest collegiate league. “There have been continuous TROs left and right in the previous years, but it didn’t tarnish the teams’ relationship with the league or among its member schools. We’re open to settle this thing in the board room, but we’re doing this to fight for our right.”

Just last month, National Bureau of Investigation operatives arrested a player and several other persons for involvement in illegal gambling in the NCAA. It was not the first time that players in the NCAA were linked to illegal gambling activities, although it was the first arrest ever made in connection to the gambling claims.

Mancom met late yesterday along with their legal counsels to tackle its next course of action on how to parry San Beda’s legal actions. They are also set to meet today to formally announce Aljamal’s suspension.

San Beda, meanwhile, relieved its representative to the mancom, Fr. Paul de Vera, allegedly due to his failure to object to the decision of the Mancom. Albert Almendralejo will succeed De Vera, inheriting management of the school’s athletics department and tons of headache caused by the raging issue.

De Jesus, however, strongly denied De Vera was relieved.

“No, he actually asked to be relieved. He already has three campuses and two schools to work on and the WNCAA (Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association) and NCAA South are about to open. We decided to let him go since we need a full-time person to represent us in the Mancom,” De Jesus said.

Meanwhile, Letran College tries to formally clinch the second semifinal berth when it tangles with San Sebastian College today at The Arena in San Juan.

Game time is set at 4 p.m. after the 2 p.m. encounter between listless College of Saint Benilde and University of Perpetual Help Dalta System. With reports from Julius Manicad

Back in 2004, Letran challenged the ManCom with San Beda on their side. San Beda walked out of the Boardroom to support Letran because of the perceived railroading of the ManCom decision suspending a Letran player. Letran got a similar TRO.* A clear precedent and the games continued.

O I see, it's not about Aljamal, it's about the other controversies in the NCAA. >>>>>PCU and CSB?*

We Bedans will walk the talk.* :D

Knights get TRO on suspension
by Razel Joy de Castro

LETRAN got a temporary restraining order (TRO) to contest the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Management Committee’s (Mancom) decision to suspend the Knights’ Frederick Rodriguez.

The order was issued by Executive Judge Enrico Lanzanas of Branch 97 of the Manila Regional Trial Court on August 19.

Letran asked the court to lift the sanction filed by the Mancom on Rodriguez for one game because of his alleged unsportsmanlike behavior during the Knights-Altas match on August 13. Rodriguez, after hitting his opponent, was suspended together with University of Perpetual Help Dalta System player, Dean Apor.

Michael del Mundo, head and chairman of the Mancom, filed a motion for reconsideration to answer the order. Del Mundo filed the motion because the sanction on Rodriguez was allegedly based on the rules and manual on operations of the NCAA, therefore the court should not be involved.

However, the court ruled for Letran. The court then issued the TRO due to the lack of due process in the Mancom’s handling of the suspension of Rodriguez.

Coach Louie Alas decided not to field Rodriguez in the game of the Knights against the Mapua Cardinals because Rodriguez had a knee-injury.

The Letran Knights have been meted two suspensions at the 80th NCAA season. However, they refused to elaborate on the Rodriguez suspension

NCAA tourney may be scrapped



By WAYLON GALVEZ

THE STRUGGLE between the NCAA and its tournament leader San Beda over whether SBC’s star player Yousif Aljamal should be suspended is sinking into a quagmire that could lead to the scrapping of the remainder of the league’s basketball season, a top league official said yesterday.


With the three-day Temporary Restraining Order issued by a Manila court that allowed Aljamal to play expiring today, San Beda reportedly is poised to seek another TRO to prevent the player’s suspension from taking effect.

San Beda’s plan reportedly does not sit well with some members of the powerful NCAA policy board with one member saying that if that happens, they may scrap the whole basketball season altogether.

The policy board member, who requested anonymity since he was not authorized to divulge their plans, said his group was incensed that instead of discussing and solving the problem within the organization, San Beda has dragged the whole league to court.

"This matter should have been discussed amongst member schools, without the involvement of the court of law," he said.

At the center of the controversy is Aljamal, the power forward who is the heart and soul of San Beda’s title-retention campaign.

Aljamal was banned by the league’s management committee or MANCOM for violating league rules regarding his application in the PBA Draft which saw him picked by Air21 at No. 8. MANCOM officials said Aljamal did not seek permission when he placed his name in the draft.

Although the NCAA has bent backwards, according to sources within the league, by overriding the disqualification and settling for a three-game suspension for Aljamal, thus giving him a chance to play in the Final Four, San Beda is still furious at this possibility and said it will accept nothing less than exoneration.

"Even a one-game suspension is too harsh," San Beda Rector and President Fr. Mateo de Jesus said.

De Jesus said that if the NCAA insists on suspending Aljamal, they will seek another TRO. The ACCRA law office, a heavyweight among local firms, which got the initial TRO, has been advised to file another in case the suspension is implemented.

When told that the NCAA may abort the tournament altogether if San Beda gets another TRO, De Jesus said: "Ask me if they (NCAA) made the decision."

Some policy board members have reportedly been turned off by what one described as San Beda’s "bullying tactics."

Where this struggle will lead to is no one’s guess. Each side appears to be moving inexorably to a path where a graceful exit might be difficult to achieve.

Adding tension to an already difficult situation was the near free-for-all during Wednesday’s San Beda- Jose Rizal game.

San Beda coach Frankie Lim accused the Jose Rizal bench of allegedly ordering its players to commit hard fouls on the Red Lions.

After the game, which San Beda won, 82-74, Lim allegedly tried to provoke JRC coach Ariel Vanguardia by bumping him as they walked toward their respective dugouts.

Vanguardia did not bite and the two coaches were separated.

MANCOM will discuss this incident today although NCAA commissioner Chito Narvasa does not see much in the incident.

"It’s an outburst after an emotional game," he said.

Several MANCOM members, who are to meet last night to discuss with lawyers from Mapua and JRU on their next move, had no to comment on the possiblity of calling off the basketball season.

"We have to answer the TRO and we’ll also heed advice from the lawyers regarding our next step," said MANCOM member Henry Atayde of the College of St. Benilde, who also seats in the policy board.

The board will meet today to discuss the TRO, as well as the alclash involving JRU coach Ariel Vanguardia, who claimed he was bumped by SBC mentor Frankie Lim at the hallway after the game.

As far as basketball commissioner Chito Narvasa is concerned, there are no penalties on the two coaches, saying: "It’s an outburst after an emotional game."

On the other hand, Albert Almendralejo will replace Fr. Paul de Vera as MANCOM representative of San Beda.

NCAA caging may be scrapped if Red Lions don’t relent

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

IF San Beda College continues to contest the NCAA Management Committee decision suspending the Red Lions’ ace player, Yousif Aljamal, for joining the PBA rookie draft last Sunday without seeking permission from the league, the ManCom may be forced to scrap the 83rd season of the country’s oldest collegiate league.

This was bared by a ranking league official yesterday, who added the eight-man ManCom, tasked to advise the league’s policy board composed of presidents and rectors of all participating schools, will not hesitate in taking this drastic action if the Red Lions do not stop their "hostile reaction" to Aljamal’s suspension.

The official, who requested anonymity for the meantime, said the possible scrapping of the league’s 83rd season was one of the "suggestions" put forward during a recent ManCom meeting.

The league’s policy board suspended Aljamal for the rest of the season last Tuesday but the Mancom shortened the suspension to three games. In response, San Beda, headed by its rector and president, Fr. Mateo de Jesus, sought a 72-hour Temporary Restraining Order from Branch 33 of the Manila Regional Trial Court that enabled Aljamal to suit up in the Red Lions’ 82-74 win over the JRU Heavy Bombers last Wednesday.

While acknowledging the plan may have drastic repercussions, among them the possible withdrawal of advertisers and the league’s broadcast partner, the source said canceling the season could be the only solution to prevent San Beda from bringing the Aljamal case to court, which could derail the operations of the league.

Informed of this development, De Jesus said San Beda will not blink in the latest controversy to hit the league.

Earlier this month, the league also hogged the headlines when National Bureau of Investigation agents arrested Paolo Orbeta of St. Benilde and three other persons for involvement in illegal gambling in the NCAA.

De Jesus said San Beda’s lawyers will seek an extension of the TRO that expires today.

De Jesus added that even if the league cancels the season, San Beda officials believe they are standing on high legal ground, adding the series of unfortunate events rocking the NCAA "is not our fault."

De Jesus stressed taking the case to court is their legal right, adding nobody, not even the league, can take that right away. At the same time, he said it will not have any direct impact on their relationship with the league.

"We don’t regret any of our actions, especially bringing the case to the court," De Jesus said. "There have been continuous TROs left and right in the previous years, but it didn’t tarnish the relationship among member schools. We’re open to settle this thing in the board room, but we’re doing this to fight for our right."

Mancom officials and their lawyers met late yesterday to tackle their response to San Beda’s legal action. They are also set to meet today to formally announce Aljamal’s suspension.

In another development, San Beda has tapped Albert Almendralejo to replace its erstwhile Mancom representative, Fr. Paul de Vera, allegedly due to De Vera’s failure to object to the Mancom decision.

De Jesus, however, denied de Vera was relieved of his duties, adding it was the latter who asked that he be replaced.

"He already has three campuses and two schools to work on and the Women’s National Collegiate Athletic Association and NCAA South are about to open. We decided to let him go since we needed a full-time person to represent us in the ManCom," De Jesus stressed.

NCAA Commissioner Chito Narvasa yesterday said the league has yet to decide what penalty to impose on San Beda coach Frankie Lim and Jose Rizal University counterpart Ariel Vanguardia who figured in a shoving match after last the Red Lions beat the Heavy Bombers 82-74 last Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan.

Meanwhile, Letran hopes to earn an outright Final Four seat when it battles San Sebastian at 4 p.m. today. Tailenders Perpetual and St. Benilde clash in the other game at 2 o’clock.

NCAA, Lions brace for longer legal tussle
By Joey Villar
Friday, August 24, 2007

A protracted legal battle between the NCAA and San Beda loomed as the NCAA Management Committee met with its lawyers last night to come up with a response to the temporary restraining order (TRO) filed by San Beda against the league that enabled Yousif Aljamal to play against Jose Rizal last Wednesday.

“The league will meet with its lawyers tonight (last night) because we have to answer the TRO that San Beda filed,” St. Benilde board representative and Mancom member Henry Atayde said in a press statement yesterday.

“We will also heed the advice of our lawyers for our next step,” he added.

The NCAA Policy Board, headed by Vince Fabella of Jose Rizal, has set another emergency meeting today, their second in three days after it decided to reduce Aljamal’s tournament-long sanction to a suspension for the rest of the elimination round.

However, a source said the league might seek a forfeiture of the game where Aljamal played that saw San Beda score an 82-74 win over Jose Rizal after the 72-hour TRO expires.
But San Beda coach Frankie Lim said they might be forced to file for another TRO again.

“If they do that, we’ll file a TRO again,” said Lim.

The Mancom, chaired by Paul Supan of Jose Rizal, last Wednesday decided to disbar the 2006 Finals MVP until the end of the season after he took part in the camp conducted by the PBA as a prelude to its annual rookie draft without officially informing the league.

“We based our decisions on our league rules, nothing else,” said Supan.

The special rule was implemented three seasons ago with former league stars Gabby Espinas of Philippine Christian U, Boyet Bautista and Aaron Aban of Letran and Leo Najorda of San Sebastian informing the NCAA of their plans to join the PBA.

Meanwhile, Letran shoots for the second berth in the Final Four as it takes on San Sebastian today at resumption of the 83rd NCAA men’s basketball tournament at The Arena in San Juan today.

The Knights are currently at second place with a 7-2 (win-loss) slate with a victory over the Stags in their 4 p.m. encounter netting them the second spot in the semis while boosting their bid for a twice-to-beat incentive.

In the other game, Perpetual Help (2-7) clashes with St. Benilde (1-10) at 2 p.m. in a non-bearing contest.

Kilala ko pala yung ibang abugadong gumawa ng pleading ng Beda ;D Atenista pa yung isa ;D


Seriously speaking, though, the thing that scares the NCAA the most at this point is if the court grants Beda an injunction, which will run for the duration of the case, which will likely reach its full end after the basketball season is finished, so if all Beda wants is for Aljamal to get to play, then the TRO is the first step, and if an injunction is granted, that's it. The NCAA's only recourse will be drastic action.

The reason why I raised some concerns in the Red Lions' Den about taking this issue to court is because, again, of the scary precedents that this issue can set. I don't think the Letran TRO was contested heavily and I do not think it was even elevated on appeal. But (this is where my lawyer father and I disagree) I think that this issue, push comes to shove, will not (or should not prosper) beyond the issue of issuing an injunction, because decided cases show that the courts have declined settling things beyond the ambit of judicial power (the Supreme Court, for example, has dismissed cases such as those involving the selection of a valedictorian by a school, etc.). This is the best argument that the NCAA can use, I think. San Beda is likely to counter with an argument about possible abuses of rights, but the courts can simply rule that the NCAA, being a private organization, should be allowed to settle things internally since these issues aren't within the jurisdiction of the courts. Of course, I also don't think the courts can enjoin the NCAA from shutting down a basketball season if it wants to.

This is also a matter that concerns me, because as much as I do not think that Beda's Aljamal should have been suspended by the NCAA, I'm also not very happy with the fact that this might make teams comfortable with the prospect of suing the league (whose rules and regulations and other agreements they have agreed to as part of their membership) whenever there's something unfavorable that happens. And this is true not just for the NCAA, but for other leagues.

But that's just me, and my obviously unqualified take on things.

Hindi lang pala uaap ang ma DRAMA, NCAA din. ;D

But seriously, what transpired in the last 2 days is really serious. I guess, mancom would stick to its position (whatever it is) and i have no doubt that San Beda is going to fight till the end for the oh-so-obvious persecution that they just received. And with both camps holding still, expect things to still heat up and unless there's a willing 3rd party going to intervene and put some senses back to mancom.

No doubt mancom imposed an illogical harsh penalty and San Beda's defiant reaction was expected. I'm not too familiar with the way the proceedings are being done in the NCAA (a case is through mancom first then elevate it to the NCAA's board of trustees?) and i'm not even sure if San Beda exhausted all possible avenues within the NCAA before they seeked the help of the legal court thus getting the TRO?

But with San Beda already invoking its right through the legal court via a TRO, i guess there's no turning back for them - the possibility of San Beda bolting out of NCAA becomes real. I guess they know already the consequences of not being a part of a real competitive league as they've been in that situation before and I do admire their courageous stand fighting the all mighty ncaa mancom but is it the only way to settle this case?

Even mancom's threat of cancelling the season if San Beda pursue its legal challenge has to be taken seriously... after all, it's the usual cocky stand of another board trying to impose its might (kung baga kahiyaan na ito kapag tumiklop sila at pangagatawanan na nila ang desisyon nila).

I don't know what's the right question; Is San beda going to survive without the NCAA? Or is the NCAA going to survive without San Beda?

davrub2003
08-24-2007, 04:32 AM
so if aljamal sought permission he won't be suspended? i think suspending him is indeed harsh.

and who had a more hostile reaction to the issue - was it san beda or the mancomm? going to the courts is the more peaceful thing to do to defend one's right. the mere announcement by the mancomm of possibly stopping the games is more hostile, arrogant, immature, presumptuous, antagonistic, despicable, etc. and this won't do any justice to anybody at all.

it would have been more appropriate if they suspended the san beda seniors basketball team altogether. but i guess they wouldn't do that lest they will be branded as sore losers since san beda is leading the pack. but remember, basketball is not an individual sport. it is a team sport. the sin of one is the sin of all.

the more mature thing to do is to just give a warning to san beda and the rest of the league. the mere fact that joining the pba draft did not cause harm to the other teams. the punishment imposed should merit the crime.

FGT, hindi lang madrama, may wrestling match pa. It was a classic basketball cum wrestling event c/o JRU. ;D

The Memo to suspend Aljamal, which was submitted to the Court, was drafted and signed August 8, 2007.* Typo error? The PBA training Camp and Draft, which was suppose to be the violations cited, were held* August 15,17 and 19 respectively. San Beda received the letter suspending Aljamal in the Afternoon of August 21,2007.

The TRO was granted by the judge on August 22 because of the urgency of the situation. This was delivered to the NCAA ManCom at around 1:00 PM of the same date.The game against JRU was to be played August 22 at 2:00 P.M. * San Beda was deliberately not given ample time to respond by the NCAA. The suspension letter was dated 8th of August but was received only on the 21st. Nice try.

Now we have this belligerent reaction by ManCom proposing* the suspension of the 83rd Season.

Is there an exit strategy for the impasse.? Of course.* ManCom can call ACCRA or the Fr. Rector. A face saving exit strategy might be available to these* "bullies".. Oooops.. "bullies"? Kami daw pala yun.;D

Survival? Sus. Sa Law, Accounting at* Nursing lang, buhay na San Beda. Maliit lang ang paarlan namin. Will the San Beda Seniors Basketball program survive? Probably not. Will the NCAA survive without San Beda. OO naman. (I just don't know if a group of zealous Bedan lawyers will make it hard for the NCAA to continue it's existence.) ;D

If those people want the issue to end this way then so be it. We won't cower just because they issued such veiled threats. They should think long and hard, if the season abruptly ends this will tarnish the integrity and standing of the NCAA. I will have to doubt that advertisers will allow themselves to be associated with the NCAA anymore. Of course, there is the partnership with ABS-CBN, the broadcasting giant have already invested alot to broadcast and promote the games. The NCAA is willing to burn down the house so that no one can use or benefit from it, especially San Beda.

Talk about the ultimate LUMPEN tendecy.

There are three schools who want the season to be scrapped in retaliation against San Beda's legal right. Who are these schools?

If they are really on the rigth side of the law, there is nothing to be afraid of.* What are they afraid now when they did not even react when a similar TRO was used by Letran in 2004 against the suspension of a Letranite? Now they want to burn the house together with the non-existent rule book. Something is really wrong here.* ;D

SBC needed a relief that would immediately effect the suspension unenforceable, thru the court issued TRO.
If the suspension order could have just served a lot earlier me thinks that SBC would question the matter within the organization be it thru the commissioner or thru the board and exhausted all necessary means to settle it internally. but the circumstances forced us to take legal relief.

Judging from the series of events me thinks that ncaa mancom has lost the credibility to fairly deliberate some league concerns by the manner (and haste) of penning resolutions.

and without any iota of doubt that they have became selfish,self serving bigots and imbecile the moment they met and conspired to take SBC out sinisterly.

They are persecuting the remaining founding member of the league, as a result these ingrates shall not see what will come their way because they will not see SBC coming.

Wow, may "scrap the season" option na pala.

I'm sorry that things got this ugly, this fast, but then what do you expect when the league or a disgruntled member-school tries to bring such flimsy charges against one of the stars of the defending champion team. (Not that I'm saying San Beda wouldn't do the same for any of its players, kahit hindi kasing-high-profile ni Yousif Aljamal.)

To the NCAA Mancom, before you start whining that Aljamal didn't ask your permission before applying to the draft, please establish that he was supposed to do that. With legal basis, please, because arbitrary statements just aren't going to fly.

And if he was supposed to do that, don't disqualify the guy just to make things right in your eyes. You're not supposed to care that PBA draftees are still playing in the NCAA, so if all the guy did was fail to ask permission (and why does he need to do that if you don't care?), I think disqualification is way too harsh a punishment. OTOH, if he wasn't supposed to ask permission because you don't have any explicit policies/rules and regulations on this matter, you'd better let him off because he didn't violate anything the league has in writing. (You might want to send him a letter of apology and a basket of fruit, too, while you're at it. And one for the school as well. Har.)

If you think PBA draftees playing in the NCAA should get league permission (Why the league? Why not just the school? Ano bang paki niyo?) before applying, then write something down and for goodness' sakes, implement it next season. It's too d@mn late now.

Judge didnt approved of it and said that if they will not produce their attorney, Judge Cruz will just have to extend our TRO for 20 more days. Mr. Supan rebutt that an extension is not possible because it will affect the schedule of the games.

Judge Cruz still denied his request and gave the Mancomm an extension until 2pm this day to present their side and their attorney. If they will not comply, Judge Cruz will extend the TRO granted for Mr. Yousiff Aljamal.

I don't know what's the right question; Is San beda going to survive without the NCAA? Or is the NCAA going to survive without San Beda?

Both will. *Yes, San Beda is going to survive without the NCAA. *As an educational institution, definitely. *Its Seniors basketball program, eventually. *Its players, definitely; they will no longer play against, say, players from Perpetual and JRU who may have been urged by a few unscrupulous team officials to maim them under the guise of hard fouls in the confines of the playing court and encouraged by slap-of-the-wrist sanctions from league officials. *San Beda may even offer all its players to the national team for the South East Asian Games, for a higher cause. *

[Yes, the at-stake back-to-back championship may give us added bragging rights. *But ending the 28 year drought was like reaching the top of Mount Everest, - what other higher peaks are there to scale. *Like the climbers, the Seniors team members were the symbol of the committed few, - in the Philippines, North America and other places where alumni were willing to support -, who decided that 'we can end this and in the 82nd season'. *Incidentally, the NCAA certainly will miss the Red Army who reserved their leaves and saved their allowances to support the team this coming September. *It is obvious by now that SBC has already earned the twice-to-beat advantage even if it loses its last 2 games. *But, hey, the Red Army will fill the stands during TNT games to cheer on their Aljamal, and if some players will don the national colors and play here, it will root for them as passionately as it has done for them.]

NCAA will certainly survive without San Beda, but in what form and status I am uncertain. *It will have lost all its founding members altogether; perhaps it can still grow some roots to rebuild a new history. *Perhaps the remaining member schools can equal or surpass the ending-28-year-drought campaign of SBC that media found refreshing and covered adequately last year; after all, Perpetual has not won a Seniors basketball title since it joined the NCAA and JRU has a title drought of 35 years. *If it doesn't, then the lack of substantial profits from crowd attendance, advertising placements and media coverage will eventually lower the status of the NCAA. *MANCOM members may also be deprived of perks like, among others, the alleged bonus all expenses-paid vacation in Hong Kong early this year given by the broadcasting company in recognition of the substantial earnings from the coverage (especially the San Beda-Letran, the final 4 and the finals games) last year.

There is life after the 83rd season of the NCAA and the NCAA itself and, there is life after basketball. *I can not just swallow all the bad faith that have been manifested and the inimical acts bereft of collegiality that have been thrown at us, on the court and off the court, in the association we helped found. *

As all things happen for a reason, we owe the NCAA ManCom, and the Policy Board as well, for hastening the consensus building process of the whole community of Bedans/Benedictines towards the right time for San Beda to submit its application to CHEd for elevation to a university, an idea that has been lying in wait since the time of the previous Rector-President.

My personal take on this. *

WHEN we switched to Studio 23 to watch the San Beda-Jose Rizal University game last Tuesday, we were pleasantly surprised to see Red Lion’s hotshot Yousif Aljamal in action since the league’s so-called management committee had banned him for the rest of the season.

The reasons cited was Aljamal’s failure to inform the Mancom of his entry into the Philippine Basketball Association Annual Draft and apparently for his participation in games, which were part of the Rookie Camp activities.

For a moment, we thought that good sense had prevailed and the National Collegiate Athletic Association realized its mistake and let the young man play. Instead, it turned out that San Beda obtained a Temporary Restraining Order, which enabled Aljamal to play in what was a crucial game to Jose Rizal University in its bid to earn a place in the Final Four.

To begin with, the attempt by management committees or boards of governors to interfere in the operations of any leagues goes against the grain of ensuring fairness and integrity, since team owners or their representatives obviously have partisan and selfish interests to protect. This is true of the PBA, PBL, UAAP, NCAA or any other league for that matter. That is why the leagues appoint commissioners, who are presumably fair-minded individuals, who don’t favor any team and have no particular interests other than the good of the league as a whole.

“Think League” was the cry of the late, well-loved PBA commissioner Jun Bernardino, who followed the path of independence and fairness, which were espoused by his eminent predecessors and mentors Leo Prieto and Rudy Salud.

The fact that JRU, the host of this year’s NCAA, was playing San Beda in a game that meant so much to them and stood to benefit from the ban on Aljamal made a mockery of the concept of fairness and sportsmanship that we presume is inculcated in the youth by our educational institutions. Whether JRU influenced the Mancom or not is immaterial, because whether they like it not, it looked in very poor taste. Besides, it didn’t speak well of the NCAA itself especially since Aljamal was a key player and proved it beyond doubt in Tuesday’s (sic) game.

The resort to the courts as a means of obtaining justice in a sporting environment runs counter to the very essence of the philosophy that games should be won or lost on the hardcourt or the playing field and never in board rooms, where personal interests override the good of the league. Beyond that, it sets a disturbing trend that all genuine lovers of sport should guard against.

Of course, San Beda was left with no choice but to seek redress in the courts for what seemed like a terrible injustice both to the team and the player by the NCAA management committee, which should, in the first place, merely set the goals and the guidelines and allow its commissioner to run the league and decide on issues of eligibility, violation of rules, etc.

Aljamal had an inherent right to join the PBA Draft and there is no earthly reason why he should have been severely penalized for not informing the NCAA other than it being an act of courtesy. That he played in the Rookie Camp games as a basis for the disqualification rings hollow. The games were not part of a sanctioned tournament and was merely an attempt to size up the skills of the amateur players in the draft.

In the end, Aljamal played, San Beda won as expected despite a pathetic effort of JRU to play dirty at times, which incurred the ire of coach Frankie Lim, and JRU was embarrassed, not so much because they lost but how they tried to win.

I am pretty sure San Beda would survive without the NCAA, I think they may even flourish in the UAAP with their rivalry with Ateneo and possibly DLSU. Right now I dare say that San Beda is the main reason why the NCAA is considered as one of the best collegiate leagues in the country right now. Their level of play forces other teams to improve and try to recruit good players too. As for the NCAA, of course they would survive, but it won't be the NCAA that we know of today, I think ABSCBN would want to commit to the NCAA without San Beda. The NCAA would probably revert back to the pre-studio23 NCAAs and they wouldn't enjoy the same media coverage as they are experiencing now.

No scrapping NCAA season – Mancom

By JOEY VILLAR
The Philippine Star

The NCAA Management Committee on Friday quashed off reports that the 83rd NCAA men’s basketball tournament would be scrapped in the face of a snowballing legal showdown between the Mancom and San Beda sparked by Yousif Aljamal’s alleged violation of a league rule.

League lawyers have already submitted documents and position papers in a hearing at the Manila Regional Trial Court on Friday after San Beda filed a TRO (temporary restraining order) on the league’s suspension order against Aljamal Wednesday. The TRO will expire Saturday.

“Since it is with the court already, we cannot talk about the case. The NCAA hopes San Beda College will do the same. But rest assured, while the court hearings are taking place, the games will continue. Besides, we never entertained the thought of aborting the season,” the Mancom said in a statement.

Sources said San Beda is poised to seek an extension of the TRO in anticipation of the league’s implementation of its suspension order on Aljamal after the expiration of the first court order.

The top San Beda cager was disbarred from playing by the Mancom for the rest of the season after the school failed to notify the league of Aljamal’s intention to join the PBA three-day camp, which served as a prelude to the PBA draft. The NCAA 2006 Finals MVP was chosen eighth overall by Air21 before he was dealt to Talk n Text.

The Mancom Policy Board later decided to suspend Aljamal only until the end of the elimination round.

But San Beda obtained a TRO, enabling Aljamal to play against Jose Rizal last Wednesday. The Lions’ next game will be on Aug. 29 against the Perpetual Help Altas.

Observers note the filing for an extension of the TRO would pave the way for a long-drawn-out legal battle between the league and San Beda.

Talks on scrapping the tournament could also lead to legal complications since the league is bound by a contract with television giant ABS-CBN’s UHL channel Studio 23, which expires on 2011.

Meanwhile, officials of the Mendiola-based school had refused to confirm nor deny reports that San Beda is also considering an option to pull out of the league.

Lions get 20-day TRO extension

By JOEY VILLAR
The Philippine Star

San Beda has secured a 20-day extension of the court order disallowing the NCAA Policy Board from imposing its three-game suspension on Red Lion star forward Yousif Aljamal.

Fr. Mateo de Jesus, OSB, who recently replaced Fr. Anscar Chopungco, OSB, as San Beda rector and president, made the announcement, saying the Manila Regional Trial Court approved their appeal to extend the 72-hour TRO (temporary restraining order) which expired Saturday.

“We’re happy with the development,” said De Jesus on the TRO extension guaranteeing Aljamal’s continued stint with the Lions at least until Sept. 14.

It allows Aljamal to play for San Beda against Perpetual Help Wednesday at The Arena in San Juan.

The Manila RTC has set another meeting Tuesday with the league, headed by Vince Fabella of Jose Rizal, to explain their position on the issue.

It will be the second hearing in five days since the league’s legal group led by Jose Manuel Diokno III attended one Friday.

The Management Committee chaired by Paul Supan also of Jose Rizal said that it will consult with the Policy Board and league counsels first before making an official statement.

The recent development could pave the way for a long legal battle between the league and San Beda, which is already assured of a place in the top two at the close of the double-round eliminations.

The Lions clinched a twice-to-beat advantage in the Final Four following an 82-74 win over Jose Rizal Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the league reprimanded coaches Frankie Lim of San Beda and Ariel Vanguardia of Jose Rizal for their misconduct during and after their emotional game Wednesday.

Lim and Vanguardia nearly figured in a fistfight after the game.

“They were issued stern warning, commissioner Chito (Narvasa) will issue written forms next week,” said Mancom member Henry Atayde of St. Benilde.

Atayde said another offense by the two coaches would mean suspension.

Lim accused Vanguardia of ordering his players to deliberately play rough on the Lions citing three flagrant fouls slapped on the Bombers.

The third – a clothesline tackle by Alvin Se on Rogemar Menor with a minute to go in the third quarter – nearly triggered a brawl between the two teams as Lim charged into Jose Rizal’s bench.

“Isn’t it obvious that they’re hurting my players? I can’t just allow them to do that,” Lim told The STAR.

SAN BEDA EXEC SAYS


‘Bolting NCAA an option’


By Julius Manicad

08/26/2007



As if the troubles hounding the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) were not enough, a ranking San Beda College official yesterday bared the school’s possible withdrawal from the league if no solution is found to diffuse the ongoing case involving ace Red Lion Yousif Aljamal.

The official, however, said although “withdrawal is an option, San Beda will still pursue an amicable ending to the Aljamal case,” which started last week after the league’s Management Committee (Mancom) suspended Aljamal for the season for joining the Philippine Basketball Association’s rookie draft without seeking permission from the NCAA.

The NCAA Mancom decision, however, did not hold. First, it reconsidered the season-long suspension of Aljamal, shortening the sanction to three days which wasn’t served still as San Beda was able to secure a temporary restraining order (TRO) from a Manila court.

San Beda is now seeking a permanent injunction, an action which a ranking league official may drive the NCAA to scrap the ongoing basketball season. But ABS-CBN, the league’s television partner, warned against the cancellation of the season, saying the league may face a possible court case if it turns its back on its contractual obligations with the television firm and their sponsors.

While waiting for a permanent order, San Beda just received a 20-day extension of the TRO, allowing Aljamal to play for the Lions for at least three more weeks.

The league has been beset with numerous problems, including illegal gambling where the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) had arrested a player and several other personalities for running an illegal gambling ring within the league. On and off-court fights are also a common sight in the NCAA. A player was also found to have falsified his records to be able to play.

For these, a San Beda source revealed school officials are not closing their thoughts on the possibility of transferring to another league.

The Tribune source stressed San Beda is willing to leave the NCAA “only after we teach them a lesson that injustice does not pay.” The school’s administrators will meet soon to make a “crucial decision,” but everything still depends on the outcome of their legal tussle against the country’s oldest collegiate league, the source further said.

For the meantime, San Beda is leaving its fate at the hands of the civil court and the seven-man NCAA Mancom headed by Jose Rizal University’s Paul Supan.

“Isn’t it pretty obvious that they will use all means, fair or foul, just to get ahead?” the source, a San Beda hardliner who begged off to be identified, said. “Leaving the NCAA is always an option but not a priority for now. And it will become an option only after teaching them a lesson that injustice does not pay. If they need the courts to do that, so be it.”

Bannered by Nigerian Sam Ekwe and Aljamal, who averages a team-high 15.2 points per game, the Red Lions enjoy a 9-1 mark entering the final week of the two-round elimination. With the way things go, San Beda is heavily tipped to proceed all the way to its second crown in 29 years. The source, however, said even if the resolution of the case would take long, they are willing to wait, before deciding whether they will stay or go.”

“Don’t they know that we’re willing to go (and wait) all the way even after the championship if needed to be?”

A top basketball official also testified on the veracity of San Beda’s possible action, saying leaving the NCAA has been an open-secret in and around San Beda’s Mendiola campus since the controversy started.

“I always hear about the possibility of bolting out of the NCAA, but I do not know where it came from. Maybe it’s true. Your guess is as good as mine.”

Along with Letran, Ateneo, La Salle , Mapua and JRU, San Beda is an original member of the NCAA when the league opened shop 83 years ago.
