I mean, the rules are we play with a quotient and if I remember correctly, one team got eliminated last conference when they didn’t have a higher quotient, they didn’t get a chance to play a knockout game,” he said, relating the unfortunate case of Blackwater in the 2018 Philippine Cup.

That’s all I can say about about that one,” he said.Black made it clear that Meralco meant no disrespect with Newsome’s shot and was just trying to position itself at the best possible outcome it can without breaking the rules.“We’ll just play by the rules. If the rules says that you have to win via quotient at the event of a tie, then we’ll try to score as much as we can. If they take that rule out, we’ll respect the game and not try to score at the end game,” he said.Black added: “Me as a coach, I’m not naive. I know that normally, if the game is over, the game is over. You don’t want to put it in the coach’s face or the other team’s face, but until the PBA changes the rules or something else, and until they continue this rule which is the quotient rule, then we’ll follow the rules.”ADVERTISEMENT Tenacious Alaska defense shuts down Columbian guards LATEST STORIES Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.
