    The Eagles' victory was dented by the referees' sloppy officiating. Mapua mentor Oscar Tanedo debated with the two refs regarding the bad calls and was slapped technical fouls in the process.
    Angered, the crowd responded immediately by throwing bottles, plastic cups and debris in the court. Even NCAA president Julian Malonso's plea to the crowd to behave fell on deaf ears and it took the intercession of policemen who mingled with the crowd to restore order after 20 minutes.
    It was the second straight year Mapua was beaten in the finals, The Carlos Badion led-Mapuans lost to La Salle last year.
