Batangas Vice Gov. Mark Leviste wants referee out of DLSU basketball game
Looks like it’s not just the UP Fighting Maroons who have some beef with a UAAP referee.
Batangas Vice Gov. Mark Leviste, a La Salle graduate, said on Facebook that he does not want referee Nestor Sambrano officiating the match between De La Salle University and Ateneo de Manila University on October 13.
According to Leviste, Sambrano breaks DLSU’s momentum during the game and makes game-changing calls in favor of Ateneo.
It is something he had been doing for years, Leviste alleged.
Among these calls were ones made when DLSU was leading by 8 points, which allowed Ateneo to catch up, he further said.
He accused Sambrano of destroying the game.
If he had his way, this Sambrano would not be seen in DLSU matches.
Will he get his wish?
“REFEREE NESTOR SAMBRANO Must Not Be Allowed to Call Our Game Against Ateneo on October 13!
Everytime he is there, he makes sure to break our Momentum time and again.
He makes those Game Changing Crucial Calls Always in Favor of Ateneo.
He has been doing this for years!
In Game One Against Ateneo, he made those dubious Calls in Succession in the 2nd Quarter, at the time we were leading by 8, if I remember correctly.
And Not Calling Fouls on us by the Eagles.
With about 6 minutes more to go, we were already in Penalty.
Giving Ateneo the chance to catch up.
To Think we were already Playing a Tough 1st Scheduled Game for Season 82 Playing the Champions
This Referee Destroys the Game, Always!
He is the Same Referee CAAyo was giving Glasses to years ago.
This was after that Flagrant Foul on MBala was not called (see photo).
There have been so many instances.
#SelectiveBlindness,” Leviste said in a Facebook post.
