Ateneo de Manila University head coach Bo Perasol has been suspended for one game by the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Board after an altercation with a La Salle alumnus moments after the Blue Eagles’ game with the Green Archers at the Araneta Coliseum last Sunday.
Ateneo lost the game to La Salle, 64 to 66.
The La Salle alumnus, identified as JJ Atayde, was banned from watching UAAP games for one season.
Atayde heckled Perasol as the coach and his players were heading for the dugout. “Thank you for handing us the game,” Atayde shouted at Perasol in Filipino.
Perasol lost his temper and tried to go after the heckler.
