UAAP finds no evidence of referee bias in La Salle-Adamson game

MANILA, Philippines – The UAAP on Tuesday confirmed that it has completed a "judicious review" of the controversial Final Four game between De La Salle University and Adamson University, following a complaint lodged by the latter.

The Green Archers hacked out an 82-75 victory over the Soaring Falcons in that game to march to the Season 80 Finals, but at the end of the contest, most of the attention was on the free throw and foul discrepancy between the two squads.

In its complaint filed November 20, Adamson noted that the Falcons were called for 33 fouls against only 12 on La Salle, and that the Green Archers were awarded 39 free throws, while they only received five trips to the line.

While Adamson stopped short of asking for a "re-play" of the game, it did ask for a "judicious review" from league commissioner and executive director Rebo Saguisag.

In a letter to Fr. Aldrin Suan, Adamson's representative to the board of managing directors, Saguisag explained the foul discrepancy cannot be taken at face value.
