Roger Gorayeb Versus The San Beda Red Lions

So I mention Roger Gorayeb, local volleyball legend and current head coach of the Ateneo women's volleyball team, and the very next day he gets into a fight with nearly an entire basketball team.
Fight erupts in 87th NCAA volleyball match

A melee broke out at the sidelines of the women's volleyball match Friday between University of Perpetual Help and San Sebastian College in the 87th NCAA. The brawl involved Lady Stags coach Roger Gorayeb and several members of defending men's basketball champion San Beda College.

NCAA officials were forced to stop the match.

Witnesses took pictures of the brawl as it took place and then uploaded them on various social networking sites. The skirmish was also recorded by closed-circuit television cameras installed inside the SBC gym.

Gorayeb, according to reports, got into a heated argument with San Beda big man Dave Marcelo and Red Lions coach Frankie Lim inside the SBC gym, where Friday's volleyball matches were played.

The argument escalated to a shouting and shoving match until punches were thrown that resulted in a free-for-all.

Full story…
I wonder if and how Ateneo and Shakey's will respond.


Here is Coach Gorayeb's version of what happened, pieced together by sports blog BallersPinas from Tweets of NBN's Snow Badua (who is himself no stranger to these things).
