UE apologizes to UniGames

University of the East officials reportedly apologized to the organizers of the 17th Sandugo University Games in Bacolod City for its men’s basketball’s forfeiture of their championship match against National University.

A report posted on the ABS-CBN website said UE executive director for marketing, Dr. Jesus T. Tanchanco Sr. and Department of Physical Education director Rodrigo Roque, sent a written apology to UniGames president Roger Banzuela explaining the circumstances that led to the team’s departure from Bacolod City the night before the final match.

“The Red Warriros were caught between vying for the UniGames crown or heeding the call of flag and country. The Red Warriors are representing the country in the Asian University Basketball Federation (AUBF) championship and were scheduled to fly to Taiwan on Sunday,” the report said..
