DLSU guard Nelle slapped with one-game ban

De La Salle University will begin its second round campaign in the UAAP Season 85 men’s basketball tournament on Saturday sans starting guard Evan Nelle.

Nelle was meted with a one-game suspension by the league after committing an unsportsmanlike foul during the Green Archers’ game against Adamson University last 22 October.

The incident occurred with 2:13 left in the first quarter of the said game which La Salle lost in overtime, 86-84, to end the first round.

He will serve his one-game ban suspension when the Taft-based squad takes on University of Santo Tomas at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in the 2:00 p.m. curtain-raiser.

DLSU is on a three-way logjam with a 3-4 win-loss record tied with the Falcons and University of the East.

Nelle has committed his third infraction of the rule.

He was called for an unsportsmanlike foul last 1 October in the last 5:04 of the Green Archers’ game against University of the Philippines.

Nelle was also whistled for the same infraction on 9 October against Ateneo de Manila University with 6:25 remaining in the second quarter.
