The protest filed by the University of Santo Tomas (UST) regarding Ateneo De Manila University’s 68-66 win last September 15 was rejected by University Athletic Association of the Philippines men’s basketball Season 75 commissioner Ato Badolato on Monday, September 17.
According to Commissioner Badolato, the goal-tending call made by the referee that occurred in the last 5.1 seconds of the game was deemed ‘a judgment call’ and cannot be reversed.
UST, however, has the option to elevate its protest to the UAAP technical board.
