Stags coach not taking ‘dirty player’ accusations lightly

San Sebastian coach Egay Macaraya lashed out at San Beda counterpart Boyet Fernandez for calling his player Michael Calisaan “dirty.”

“Boyet (Fernandez) has no right to call Michael (Calisaan) a dirty player. He is destroying the dignity of Michael, as well as the referees and commissioner,” said a livid Macaraya.

He was reacting to Fernandez's accusation that the 6-foot-4 Calisaan was up to no good in the Lions’ 76-65 win over the Stags in a second-round game in the 93rd NCAA basketball tournament at Filoil Arena Friday.

Calisaan was initially assessed a disqualifying foul on San Beda’s Javee Mocon with 3:33 left in the first quarter that would have automatically ejected the former and resulted in a one-game suspension.

But the referees downgraded the call to an unsportsmanlike foul after a video review.

Calisaan has been suspended in the first round after he was ejected for two flagrant fouls on Emilio Aguinaldo College’s Sydney Onwubere.
