NCAA ManCom to Perpetual: Sorry, Thoyib is not eligible

26 06 2007

THE National Collegiate Athletic Association Management Committee (Man Com) has declared officially that Indonesian player Isman Thoyib of University of Perpetual Help Dalta System is not eligible to play in the 83rd NCAA men’s basketball.

Based on the documents obtained by the Man Com, the 6-foot-9 Thoyib had played for the Indonesian Basketball League (IBL) in 2006, a commercial league like the Philippine Basketball League (PBL).

The Man Com said the NCAA has a rule that stated: “Any athlete who played in any commercial league prior to his first season is not eligible to play in the NCAA.” The Basketball Association of Indonesia (BASI) also confirmed to the Man Com that Isman played in the IBL.

Isman has been included in the line-up of the Altas along with another Indonesian Ryan Frebyan. Both Frebyan and Korean Sang Myeon Lee, on the other hand are qualified to play in the league.

Three foreign players so far have been playing in the NCAA, including six-foot-eight Nigerian sophomore Samuel Ekwe.

Perpetual coach Arturo “Bai” Cristobal said they might appeal the case, considering that Indonesia has no other league but the IBL. And the IBL took the place of Indonesia’s collegiate basketball.

“There is no malice on our part,” said Cristobal whose charges lost to San Sebastian College, 59-56, in Saturday’s opening day third game.

Actually, we should commend the NCAA Mancom for acting swiftly and efficiently on the issue.

Ahay, bat naman kasi kuha pa ng imports? Ganito na ba talaga ka-commercialize ang NCAA ngayon? Bat hindi na lang all filipino di ba? Pero naman wag lang daanin sa dayaan at wag na sabihin “no malice” para namang mga bobo ang bumabasa.. nyahahaha

savvied, sa iyong question, suspended ang PCU dahil may illegitimate na player from last season. Yan ha UPHD baka sumunod kayo sa PCU, lalong walang chance maging champions
