PINATAWAN ng isang larong suspension si Lyceum of the Philippines star at last year’s MVP CJ Perez bunsod nang paglabag sa umiral na batas at regulasyon ng National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Matapos ang pagpupulong at masinsin na desisyon, ipinahayag ng NCAA Management Committee ang pagsuspinde kay Perez, miyembro rin ng Gilas Pilipinas Cadet.

“Mr. Jaymar Perez, a player from the seniors basketball team of Lyceum of the Philippines University, was meted with a one-game suspension for failing to inform NCAA that he applied for the PBA draft. Under the NCAA rules, a student athlete must inform the NCAA in writing of his intention to apply for draft in any professional league prior to submitting the said application.”

“In this case, Perez only informed NCAA of his application days after he submitted the same to PBA, and after the same was already the subject of numerous news reports. Thus, Perez is suspended for one game or on the scheduled game on Nov. 6, 2018.”

“Finally, it should be stressed that the NCAA’s action on this incident was made after carefully considering the best interest of the league and the student athletes. It is in accordance with existing NCAA rules and its ultimately intended to promote the spirit of sportsmanship and discipline in the league,” pahayag ng Mancom sa press statement na ipinamahagi sa media nitong Lunes.
