Robinson on late foul: Refs make mistakes too

first_imgMargot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene View comments Photo by Tristan Tamayo/ INQUIRER.netLyceum’s historic 18-0 sweep of the NCAA Season 93 eliminations almost didn’t become a reality after referee Edmar Avis’ call late in the first overtime.After CJ Perez gave the Pirates a 97-96 lead with a gutsy drive with 3.4 seconds to spare, Robert Bolick desperately tried to fish for foul in the last 1.5 ticks, something that the official numbered 16 willingly gave as he whistled Jaycee Marcelino for a foul.ADVERTISEMENT “Mistakes will always be there. But what I can say is the referees really tried their best. If I will rate it, you already saw it and you can base it on what you saw, I’m happy with the way they called it,” Cristobal said.“I will not entertain that anymore. As far as the referees are concerned, we’ll always go on different ways. They will judge it according to what they saw and they will always call for what is good and right for the game.”Lyceum coach Topex Robinson also didn’t let the errant call affect his team’s psyche late in the game.“I trust coach Bai a lot. They’re also people who make mistakes. I told my players to just keep on playing. They don’t want to be in that situation also, and we honor them also. We know that they’re gonna make mistakes and it’s not a fault of their own. I told them that instead of making the referees as an excuse, we have to find a way. We have to find a way and we have to really, really grind it with them,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson NCAA Finals trip dream come true for Marcelino twins Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
