Matthew Aquino a mere spectator against UE as eligibility status still in question


Fox Sports Asia reports that NU Bulldogs opts to sit out Matthew Aquino against UE as eligibility status still in question.

The proud son of former pro league great Marlou was reduced to a mere spectator in the course of National U’s 72-66 victory over University of the East on Wednesday, with a big cloud of uncertainty hovering above his eligibility status in the UAAP Season 79 men’s basketball tournament.

The 6-foot-7 Aquino, 19, was in uniform and was supposed to be the starting power forward until NU coaching staff, led by chief tactician Eric Altamirano, opted to scratch him off the starting list at the last minute to avoid any complications with his eligibility.
