Basketball Australia To Appeal Brawl Bans
While still days away from its next game against Alaska, GlobalPort faces the prospect of losing Terrence Romeo to injury after hurting his right calf during the Batang Pier's 103-115 defeat to Blackwater on Sunday. Moore said getting the Boomers squad home safely was Basketball Australia's No.1 priority. Australia used 11 players across the first two quarters as they ran the home side off their feet and forced a number of turnovers with suffocating defensive pressure up the court with Dellavedova particularly dangerous with three steals.
In the midst of the action, Goulding was trapped under what looked to be a mixture of approximately a dozen Filipino players, coaches, and officials, with the Melbourne United guard appearing to be mobbed by the group; punches thrown and chairs dropped on him.
Vice Ganda tweets amid Gilas Pilipinas-Boomers basketball brawl in FIBA. The suspensions only apply to 2019 FIBA World Cup qualifying games. The altercation broke out in the middle of a game in July 2, Monday at the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. Meanwhile, Romeo's father, William, came to the defense of his son following allegations that he supposedly received expensive gifts from Vice Ganda, including a condominium unit and a car.
MANILA - GlobalPort cager Terrence Romeo has finally gone on record to clarify his rumored ties with comedian Vice Ganda, who recently confirmed that he has broken up with his mystery boyfriend. It's understood the FIBA Terrence Romeo Issue appeal process requires a significant and non-refundable payment plus additional costs and this would make it unlikely any player appeals.
Terrence Romeo, Jayson Castro William, and Andray Blatche each received a three-game suspension; Roger Pogoy, Carl Cruz, and Jio Jalalon each received a five-game suspension; while Calvin Abueva received a six-game suspension, with his sanction more severe due to prior unsportsmanlike behaviour in FIBA competition.
