Lyceum will go into a very important game 1 in the NCAA basketball season of 94 men against champion champion and top seed San Beda without superstar CJ Perez.
Perez, one of the top top players in the country, was closed on Tuesday on the eve of the final opener after violating the NCAA rule after not telling the League that he had asked for a PBA proposal next week.
24-year-old Perez has an average of 18.7 points, 8.4 rebounds, 3.9 assists, and 3.3 this season.
Lyceum is reportedly attempting to appeal to the League's decision to suspend Perez.
Do-it-all helped Lyceum deal with San Bedou with the only loss in the elimination round, and without it the Pirates would have to hope that, like Mike Nzeusseu, the twins Jaycee and Jayvee Marcelino and MJ Ayaay would release.
Game 1 tip for 4 hours. at the Mall of Asia Arena, while Game 2 is set next Monday. If necessary, the race for winners of all races is planned on November 15th.
