The game hasn’t reached its half yet, but the match-up between University of Santo Tomas and University of the Philippines has already seen its fair share of injuries. 

With 5:43 remaining in the second quarter, Kobe Paras went up for a lay-up against Soulemane Chabi Yo. After colliding badly midair, Paras awkwardly fell on his right shoulder, forcing him out of the game.

Paras headed to the Fighting Maroons’ dugout right away together with the team’s medical staff.

A few minutes after, Mark Nonoy fired a three-point shot. Unfortunately, his right foot landed on Juan Gomez De Liano’s left foot, spraining his ankle
