Ayo, Paraiso throws shade at crucial non-calls against Adamson


The UST Growling Tigers just suffered a heartbreaking 71-78 loss against Adamson Falcons, but what happened during the game was a controversial one, to say the least.

UST head coach Aldin Ayo declined to hold an interview, but he would leave a statement to the reporters which might sum up his thoughts about the game.

“Sinindikato kami,” he stated.

To only prove his point, the two-time titlist mentor took on Twitter to post a picture of this play that the Adamson considered as a huge “defensive play”.

UST was still leading at 71-67, but this inbound play where Renzo Subido’s arm was purposely entangled by Jerom Lastimosa, which became a turnover the moment Brent Paraiso passed the ball.

This mishap would pave the way for the Falcons to ignite a 16-0 run led by Val Chauca.

Paraiso, on the other hand, received some questionable foul calls which led him being fouled out of the game.

The former La Salle forward was not shy to comment on the officials’ calls, but he chose not to dwell on it.

“Uh yeah manipis nga yung mga tawag today pero you have to play through it and maturity lang dapat kami. Wala, ganoon talaga,” Paraiso shared.

“Yeah, we can say that, but we were in control of the whole game pero yun nga the refs decided the game so we can’t do anything about it.”

With that loss, UST now has a 3-2 win-loss record.
