MANILA, Philippines -- UAAP Commissioner Ato Badolato junked the protest of National University on Far Eastern University's RR Garcia's buzzer-beating layup on Wednesday.

Badolato upheld the 77-75 victory of the Tamaraws, saying that "the ball left the hand of RR (Garcia) in time upon the review of the game."

Badolato reviewed the game using league broadcaster ABS-CBN's camera angles to come up with the decision.

As it stands, the Tamaraws remained at 8-3 tied with the UST Tigers for the second spot while the Bulldogs is stuck at fifth with a 6-5 slate.

NU can still appeal to the Technical Committee with the UAAP Board having the final decision on the matter.
