Statement of PBA Deputy Commissioner Eric Castro on the missed infraction during the Magnolia-Barangay Ginebra game:

Unacceptable. There was contact. We failed to make a call.

During the game - in real time while the play was on, the game crew did not see a foul. The officials failed to call a foul (missed call) on Barroca against Thompson in the last 11.5 seconds of the 4th quarter.

With this, the officiating crew of the game between Barangay Ginebra and Magnolia Chicken Timplados Hotshots are suspended for failing to assess the infraction.
