Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 25) — Raffy Verano and Jolo Mendoza are at risk of sitting out UAAP Season 82 for the Ateneo Blue Eagles due to academic suspension.

Blue Eagles head coach Tab Baldwin bared this development hours after they clinched the title in the PBA D-League.

"They are both on academic suspension," he told CNN Philippines in a text message.

The two players were part of Ateneo's back-to-back championship run in the UAAP men's basketball tournament.

Verano logged in 7.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per outing, while Mendoza averaged 3.9 points on 40 percent from beyond-the-arc last year.

The Blue Eagles will enter this season with an intact lineup with only Anton Asistio graduating.
