SWU’s Valdor given green light
5 p.m. – CEC vs. USPF (Jrs.)
6:30 p.m. – SWU vs. CIT-U (Srs.)
The Board of Trustees of the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (Cesafi) has upheld the decision of league commissioner Felix Tiukinhoy to allow Southwestern University’s (SWU) Bendly Valdor to replace injured import Justin Aboude this season.
This was the consensus of the board during their meeting last Tuesday night in light of the protest that was filed by the University of San Carlos (USC).
USC claimed that Valdor, a standout from Deerfield Beach High School in Florida, should not have been allowed to replace Aboude, who has been sidelined indefinitely after being diagnosed with coronary artery disease, because he was not properly screened. USC took exception and contended that Valdor’s inclusion had come long after the screening of athletes.
In a statement released by the Cesafi yesterday, it said “After careful review, reflection and deliberation, the Cesafi Board has determined that the decision of the Commissioner to allow Bendley Valdor to replace Justin Aboude in the Cesafi 2014 basketball tournament is justified.”
