    Four schools eyeing PCU’s spot in NCAA

    Four schools eyeing PCU’s spot in NCAA
    FRIDAY |MARCH 14, 2008

    NCAA Management Committee member Henry Atayde of College of St. Benilde yesterday revealed that four schools have signified their intention to join the league in the wake of a controversy hounding one of its members.

    Atayde related the four schools have called the ManCom a day after reports came out that Philippine Christian University is facing year-long suspension anew after a continuing probe by league officials uncovered more Dolphins culpable of identity switching violations.

    "Yes, we received calls from other schools saying they want to join. But I told them we are not really looking for a replacement (for PCU)," Atayde told Malaya in a phone interview.

    "I also told them we’re still awaiting the result of the meeting between the Policy Board and (PCU president) Dr. Oscar Suarez. Pero ang sabi nila, they are ‘just here’ if we need them."

    Atayde did not name the schools but said that they are participants in the Fr. Martin’s Cup.

    Rumors also circulated yesterday that PCU is mulling to bolt out the league although Atayde said it is highly improbable.

    "I don’t think they will do that. But if they do we can’t do anything about it, it’s their decision. Basta kami we just wait, we don’t want to jump to conclusions," said Atayde who added the Board and representatives from PCU will meet anytime next week.

    In a statement sent to media offices Wednesday, ManCom chairman Paul Supan said a consensus has been reached by the ManCom but refused to make formal announcements until the Policy Board has met with PCU officials.

    A source, however, revealed that the consensus is for the Dolphins to sit out one more season while their status will be reduced to probationary when they return next year.

    The Dolphins were banned from joining the league last year after Vincent King Importante was found to have falsified his documents to assume the identity of his younger brother, Jaypee.

    The investigation, however, did not stop there and more names were discovered, including 2006 rookie MVP Elvin Pascual.

    "The NCAA is transparent. PCU is aware that the league is still conducting investigations and hindi naman namin sila binigla sa balita na ito," Atayde added.

    4 schools want to join ‘NC’

    FOUR schools are said to be waiting on the wings in the event Philippine Christian University (PCU) is dropped or withdraws from the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

    PCU is said to be headed for another year of suspension after an investigation conducted by the league showed it switched the identities of not one but five players on its juniors team two seasons ago.

    College of Saint Benilde’s Henry Atayde, a member of the NCAA Management Committee (Mancom) confirmed four schools have indeed signified their intention to join the league that turns 84 next year.

    He, however, refused to identify the four schools although he hinted they are members of the Fr. Martin Cup tournament.

    “We have received calls from other schools saying that they want to join,” said Atayde. “But we will still wait for the result of the meeting between the [NCAA] Policy Board and Dr. [Oscar] Suarez [PCU president]. Ang sabi ko lang sa kanila, we are just here if they needed them.”

    The NCA deferred announcing its decision on PCU until after its officials have formally informed PCU top brass.*

    The NCAA also announced Wednesday that five players from its high school basketball team were found to have cases of identity switching.

    Mancom chairman Paul Supan of Jose Rizal University, in a statement, said that the NCAA Policy Board, led by Vincent Fabella of JRU, has formed a consensus but said that they will only announce it in public after talking with PCU officials.

    PCU did not object to the league’s findings and only said that they are asking for “mercy” and “understanding.”

    Four schools hot on PCU’s slot in NCAA

    Four schools have signified intention to join the National Collegiate Athletic Association should the NCAA take a more drastic action against erring member Philippine Christian University, or should PCU opts to leave if its suspension gets extended to another year.

    College of Saint Benilde representative to the NCAA management committee Henry Atayde yesterday admitted prospective applicants have called, inquiring about the possibility of joining the league should PCU decides to leave the league for good.

    Atayde hinted these schools are currently seeing action in the Fr. Martin’s Cup.

    Sources from the collegiate circuit floated Trinity College, Lyceum of the Philippines, Arellano University and Emilio Aguinaldo College as possible applicants.

    Trinity used to be a member of the NCAA was but was dropped in 1986 after failing to meet some requirements.

    “There were some schools who already expressed their intention. In fact, they’ve been calling us since the other night, asking how they could join,” Atayde, the most outspoken member of the eight-man panel, said. “Eight is a very ideal number. If PCU leaves, then we really have to find a school that will become our eighth member.”

    “I can’t give you their names right now. But for the sake of conversation, all of them are playing in the Fr. Martin’s (Cup).”

    Atayde emphasized the league is not entertaining applications for membership as it has yet to formally sit down and discuss its general consensus with the PCU administration.

    4 schools jockey for PCU’s NCAA slot

    Although it’s improbable for Philippine Christian University (PCU) to leave the NCAA following a decision by the league’s Policy Board, some schools have expressed intention to join the country’s oldest collegiate league if a vacancy occurs.

    A reliable source said yesterday that four Metro Manila-based schools have sent feelers that they are ready to fill the void should PCU decide to leave the NCAA instead of accepting another one-year ban being poised by the league.

    Reportedly knocking on NCAA’s door are Lyceum, Arellano University, Fatima University and Emilio Aguinaldo College.

    "There are several schools who want to join the NCAA," the source said. "But it’s unfair to PCU to discuss this issue or even entertain those interested because it is still a member of the NCAA."

    An official of EAC was first to confirm its intention to join the NCAA.

    The Policy Board, chaired by Vincent K. Fabella of Jose Rizal University, reportedly reached a consensus the other day to ban PCU another year. The decision was arrived at after the board discovered that two players allegedly falsified documents so they could join the PCU junior team during the 82nd Season. The NCAA has deferred the announcement pending a meeting with PCU president Oscar Suarez.

    PCU was suspended for one season last year because of this infraction.

    The Bulletin tried to contact Suarez but was not available for comment.

    In the 83rd season of the NCAA, the league suspended PCU after three players were found to have committed identity switching and false academic records.

    In the NCAA report given to the Policy Board and presented to PCU, the players from the high school team allegedly involved in the falsification of documents were identified as Jaypee Importante, Victor Miguel Oliveros, Jundell Navaja, James De Gano and Elvin Jake Pascual

    Importante, whose real name is Vincent King, Oliveros and De Gano were previously implicated in the first NCAA report last April. Pascual, the 2006 NCAA winner of Rookie of the Year and Most Valuable Player awards, is currently with the Team B of back-to-back champion San Beda College.

    However, despite intention of some schools to join the NCAA, sources said that it’s "very unlikely for PCU to leave."

    "It’s really hard to accept another one-year suspension," said an NCAA official, who requested anonymity. "But they’ll stay, I doubt it kung aalis sila."

    IF any one among Lyceum, Arellano and EAC do join the NCAA that means more talent across the board for the NCAA. I'm not too sure of Fatima though.

    Too bad the UAAP is swapang and are not keen on expanding.

    Why not consider St. Francis of Assisi College? With the success of Yancy De Ocampo, Ranidel De Ocampo, Ervin Sotto and Chris Pacana in the PBA and Al Vergara with Harbour Centre in the PBL, St. Francis has one of the best college programs outside the NCAA and the UAAP.

    St. Francis is in Las Pinas, a few km away from UPHDS... how is that a factor?
