MANILA, Philippines—National University guard Kean Baclaan and two players in the women’s division have been given a one-match suspension by UAAP.

Baclaan is suspended after being called up for two technical fouls—both for “fake fouls”—in Bulldogs 63-58 loss to La Salle Green Archers on Wednesday.

He will miss NU’s final game in Saturday’s knockout against Adamson. The Bulldogs (9-4) are still vying for the top two spots to reach the UAAP Season 85 Men’s Basketball Quarterfinals.

La Salle’s Niantcho Tchuido and Ateneo’s Sarah Makanjuola were also forced to sit out their respective teams’ games in Saturday’s women’s basketball tournament.
