NCAA Commissioner Arturo “Bay” Cristobal upheld the protest of CSB regarding its match against Perpetual Help.
Cristobal overturned a 69-65 victory by the Altas after coming in with the wrong set of jerseys.
Perpetual Help, which was supposed to wear its light jerseys, checked in at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan City on Tuesday with its maroon kits instead.
Following a 45-minute window, the Altas were assessed with a technical foul, but the game pushed through.
The ruling was made based on Article 22.214.171.124 Section 20 of the NCAA Rulebook, which states that an athlete who does not bring the right jersey in a certain game is ineligible to play for the said game.
The reversal of the outcome gave TY Tang his first NCAA win as CSB coach.

Currently, he is under the tutelage of personal coach Ige Lopez, renowned triathlon coach Ani Brown, Mt. Everest conqueror Romi Garduce, and TV and radio host Sam Gogna, who himself is a marathon runner.
“We’ve been training for this marathon by doing a lot of long runs,” Sangalang continued, baring that he added a trail run to his training.
On his preparations for the -30-degree Celsius temperature of the North Pole, Sangalang said, “We’re doing it in stages. The first phase is basically terrain and mileage. The second phase is going to be acclimatizing to the cold.”
Sangalang’s team will depart for Tromso, Norway on March 30 to start the acclimatizing phase. The team will then head to the Longyearbyen for the final stages of preparation before going to the North Pole for the race itself.
