Teys penalty reduced, DKD appeal fails

THE two-match suspensions for Adelaide 36ers captain Brendan Teys and Perth Wildcats 3-point specialist Dexter Kernich-Drew were reviewed today by the NBL Tribunal, with Teys' penalty reduced to one match.

Independent Tribunal Chair Andrew Coleman SC this afternoon heard appeals for both after the NBL's Games Review Panel issued the two-match bans in the wake of Friday's end-of-game melee at Perth Arena.

Teys’ charge of unduly rough play was downgraded from high impact to medium impact, resulting in his suspension being reduced to one game.

He was cited for his heavy contact on Wildcats' development player Lochlan Cummings as he drove to the hoop with 0.9 of a second left.

Teys (right) was assessed with an unsportsmanlike foul for the contact at the time.

He now only will miss Adelaide’s game against Illawarra on Sunday in Wollongong.

Kernich-Drew’s appeal was dismissed and his two-game suspension stands.

Frustrated by Teys' foul on Cummings, Kernich-Drew (left) ran at Teys from his blind side and sent him flying with his unexpected hip-and-shoulder charge.

That set off a melee in front of the 36ers' bench, resulting in fines for eight other players.

Kernich-Drew will miss Perth’s next two games against Cairns and Melbourne.

Neither player previously has been reported in their NBL careers.

Teys apologised to Cummings right after the play which had set the sequence in motion. Post-game he also sought out Kernich-Drew to apologise and for a converstaion more civil than the one below.
