UAAP lifts Perasol’s suspension

 

University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) basketball commissioner Jensen Ilagan lifted the third and final game suspension imposed on University of the Philippines head coach Bo Perasol.

This comes after a meeting between Perasol and Ilagan last Saturday, October 12 in which the Fighting Maroons mentor expressed his sincerest apologies to the league, more importantly, to referee Jaime Rivano.

“Last Saturday was the first time our office heard directly from Coach Bo and we appreciate his sincerity and evident humility in expressing his regret regarding the incident between him and referee Rivano which happened last September 29,” said Ilagan.


“Coach Bo emphasized how he deeply regretted his actions towards the official and extended his apology towards the UAAP Board, organization, and the entire community.”

With this, Perasol will make his return to the sidelines when UP takes on University of Santo Tomas on Wednesday, October 16 at 4 pm, SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
