    NCAA suspends Aljamal

    NCAA disbars Aljamal

    The Philippine Star

    The NCAA is barring Yousif Aljamal from playing for San Beda in its game against Jose Rizal University in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament Wednesday after the Red Lions failed to inform the league that their prized cager would be joining the PBA rookie draft last Sunday.

    “We just learned that the NCAA is not allowing Aljamal to play tomorrow (Wednesday),” said San Beda team manager Mukesh Advani. He admitted that the school did not seek any clearance from the NCAA for Aljamal to join the draft.

    Aljamal was drafted eighth overall by Air21 but will suit up for Talk 'N Text due to a previous deal by the two ballclubs.

    San Beda said it will ask the NCAA Mancom for reconsideration.

    Otherwise, the Lions will play without one of their key players when they mix it up with the JRU Bombers in the 2 p.m. opener at The Arena in San Juan.

    The third running Bombers are gunning for their sixth straight win and seventh overall in 10 games as they try to firm up their bid for a semis berth.

    “It’s always tough playing San Beda because they’re not the defending champions for nothing,” said Jose Rizal coach Ariel Vanguardia. “If we could play harder and show a lot of heart, we’ll have a chance against them.”

    San Beda shows the way with an 8-1 mark while Letran is just a game behind with a 7-2 slate.

    Meanwhile, Mapua, currently toting a 5-6 record, tries to keep its hold of fourth place as it faces also-ran St. Benilde (1-9) at 4 p.m.

    The Cardinals are also on a three-game run as they moved from sixth to fourth with a 5-6 card heading into the crucial phase of the double round elims.

    Led by Kelvin dela Peña, Mapua mowed down Letran, 89-82, last Aug. 8, blasted San Sebastian, 80-71, two days later and then smashed Perpetual Help, 83-64, last week. Changing The Face of The Game!

    Can a PBA draftee still play in college?

    NCAA debates case of San Beda’s Aljamal


    YOUSIF ALJAMAL was among the surprise picks — No. 8 — in last Sunday’s PBA Rookie Draft.

    But while he’s close to realizing his dream of playing in the PBA, his other dream of winning back-to-back NCAA championships for San Beda is over – or perhaps, on hold – as his school debates with NCAA officials whether he can play in college even after accepting a PBA draft.

    The 6-foot-4 Aljamal, drafted by Air21, found himself scratched from the San Beda lineup followng a decision by the NCAA management committee (MANCOM) that he no longer qualifies as an NCAA player after he was drafted by the Air21 Express.

    Aljamal was selected eighth overall by Air21. But his stay with the team may be shortlived as reports say he has been dealt to Talk ’N Text in exchange for future picks.

    A reliable source said the decision to bar Aljamal was based on the league’s constitution and by-laws.

    "Not only did he fail to inform his school and the NCAA that he was entering the draft, he also participated in a three-day camp," said the source, who asked not to be named.

    He said the PBA Rookie Training Camp last week is considered a tournament outside of the NCAA.

    The source said that the league already has a rule that disallows NCAA players frm joining the camp which it considers as a separate tournament. But the NCAA relented and said it would allow its players to partcipate on condition that the player or players seek permission from the league.

    "In his case, Aljamal did not (ask permission). It’s simple as following the rules" the source said.

    Aljamal’s school, however, disagrees with the MANCOM ruling and has appealed for reconsideration.

    In a statement, San Beda Rector Fr. Mateo de Jesus said the policy on this matter was vague.

    "There’s no clear-cut policy or any written ruling that an NCAA player who wishes to be part of the PBA needs to secure the permission of the MANCOM. This decision of the MANCOM is clearly unfair and one-sided, and quite contrary to the spirit of collegiality that the NCAA seeks to foster," Fr. de Jesus said.

    "Aljamal’s drafting should be a source of pride for the NCAA. Instead, this episode could create the misperception that the NCAA is in fact not supportive of its players seeking to move up to the professional ranks," he added.

    MANCOM chairman Paul Supan of Jose Rizal University said that they will discuss San Beda’s protest and will make a final decision afterwards.

    The Bulletin tried to contact Aljamal, as well as his representatives, but calls were not answered. Changing The Face of The Game!

    ^ Si Gabby Espinas din, pinayagan di ba?

    My understanding is that the NCAA is more lenient and allows PBA draftees to continue playing (provided, of course, they're still enrolled in the NCAA member school for which they are playing).

    Does the NCAA have a requirement that they at least be notified that Player X is applying for the draft, or is this a surprise regulation penalizing players who have been drafted, that they're springing on people in the middle of the season?

    Re: NCAA disbars Aljamal

    Dalawa ang punto ng Mancom.

    1. Hindi nagpaalam.

    2. Naglaro sa rookie camp while the league is ongoing.

    Sa una, if proof can be shown that Najorda, Aban, Bautista and Espinas ALL had asked and were granted permission by the NCAA, then the same should be apply to Aljamal. Di pwede yung pasabi lang. Pakita sila ng sulat o document attesting may humingi at binigyan ng pahintulot.

    Sa punto naman ng paglalaro while the NCAA is ongoing, tanda ko lahat ng mga nauna kay Aljamal ay naglaro sa PBA camp. Kung ano yung camp sa panahon ng mga unang nabanggit, yun din yung camp sa panahon ni Aljamal. Kung di ako nagkakamali, Aban even registered the highest vertical leap among applicants then.

    Harang talaga itong ginawa kay Aljamal at San Beda.
    We had a head start in this game. At one time we had a glorious 3rd place finish in the World Championship and was the undisputed power in Asia. But the world has learned how to play it. They may not be as good as us,but they have enough smarts to make use of their height. That is enough to beat us.

    ^^^ Second the motion ako sa sinabi ni Sir Irate.

    Sa ganang akin mahirap yatang tanggapin ang turing ng NCAA sa isang Predraft Camp bilang isang "tournament". Kung ganun dapat ituring din nilang tournament ang Elite Camp, ganun din kasi 'yon, na-TV at nagpakitang gilas ang players dun.

    Isa pa, kung sa akin lang hangga't walang kontrata ang isang player hindi pa siya pro at dapat pwede pa siyang maglaro sa NCAA. Huwag na nating idamay ang ahente, alam naman nating lahat na may ahente na din ang player sa college. Na-draft lang naman 'yung tao. Sa pagkakaalam ko hindi ka pa officially pro ang manlalaro hangga't wala ka pang kontrata.

    Tsaka ano ba itong paalam-paalam pa? Ang hilig-hilig ng Pinoy sa paalam system na 'yan. Bakit naman kailangan pa niyan sa kaso ng player na gustong mag-PBA? Kung ayaw ba ng NCAA pumayag sa "paalam" ibig sabihin hindi na pwedeng mag-pro ang player?

    Kung ako sa NCAA tigilan na nila itong mga ganitong rigodon at hayaan ng maglaro si Aljamal.

    Re: NCAA disbars Aljamal

    may nalalaman pa silang paalam-paalam eh matagal na naman nilang alam na may balak mag-PBA si Yousif, last year pa yang balita na yan ah! after na mag-champion ang San Beda. haay ginagawa lang nilang excuse yan at gaya nga ng sinabi ni Ed Picson, hindi pa siya final hangga't walang contract-signing. Ewan ko ba kung bakit pinalalaki ng bwisit na NCAA Mancom na yan yung issue. tsk tsk tsk!
