Topex Robinson will not be present when the Lyceum of the Philippines University Pirates take on neighbors Colegio de San Juan de Letran Knights on Friday, August 18, as he is suspended for one game after incurring two technical fouls last Thursday when Lyceum faced EAC.
The announcement was made by NCAA Management Committee chairman Fr. Glyn Ortega, Saturday morning.
Robinson, 37, was slapped with two quick technical fouls with 6:34 left in the second frame during Lyceum’s 97-93 win over EAC.
“The boys really did their best for Coach Topex, who was early on was ejected [sic] because of two technical fouls,” said Lyceum assistant coach Jeff Perlas, who will call the shots ofr Lyceum on Friday, after the road win.
And the Pirates will have to dig deep once again come Friday if they want to keep their unblemished slate intact against the Knights, a team that has won its last three games.
