Cesafi penalizes CIT-U-A A +A
Wednesday, August 8, 2012
CEBU Institute of Technology-University (CIT-U) Wildcats skipper and ace player Floyd Taboada is this year’s first recipient of a penalty from the the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi).
Cesafi commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy Jr., who watched the CIT-U game against UV last Tuesday evening, told reporters that the league will impose a one-game suspension and a P5,000 fine on Taboada.
Tonight, the Wildcats will be playing without Taboada and coach Gilbert Demape needs to find someone who can lead CIT-U as the Wild cats play defending champions University of Cebu Webmasters at 6:45. The UC Baby Webmasters will face the DBTC Greywolves in the opening game at 5 p.m
Taboada was thrown out of the game after he was slapped with his second unsportsmanlike foul for swinging an elbow on Eman Calo in the last 17.8 seconds of the third period.
The first came at 7:45 of the second quarter when he also swung an elbow on UV power forward Hernan Escocio.
“If a player is ejected because he committed two unsportsmanlike fouls, the penalty is a one-game suspension and a fine of P5,000 on the first infraction and will vary on the next infractions. But if a player is ejected because of technical foul or a combination of an unsportsmanlike foul and a technical foul, there is no penalty for that,” said Cesafi deputy commissioner Danny Duran.
Escosio was thrown out in UV’s first game last Aug. 2 but was not penalized because it was because of an unsportsmanlike foul and a technical foul.
Without Taboada, Demape will need to devise game plans to match UC’s quickness and outside shooting prowess.
