Noah Webb cleared from ACL tear after all-heart play in UAAP Stepladder

After spending days with his fingers crossed, University of the Philippines team captain Noah Webb can breathe a small sigh of relief as his left anterior cruciate ligament is still intact.

The MRI results for the 23-year-old showed that he tore his left meniscus, sidelining him for the next five to six months.

Though sidelined for that long, it’s better than a career-altering ACL tear.

Webb’s injury occurred during UP’s tough 65-68 Stepladder Semifinals Game Two loss to University of Santo Tomas last November 13.

With 2:16 left in the game, Mark Nonoy crossed up Webb, causing him to fall.

Though hobbling and favoring his left knee, the 6-foot-3 forward still mustered all his strength to foul Nonoy and stop the play.

He then had to be carried off the floor by teammates David Murrell and Jaydee Tungcab.

It was a heroic act that drew praise across the community.

Though in pain and heartbroken, Webb, who averaged 3.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game this season, still congratulated the Growling Tigers afterward — even throwing a quip at Nonoy and former DLSZ teammate Renzo Subido.

“Hats off to UST! Renzo Subido, puchangina mo kompyansa ka saakin ah. Good luck sa finals ha! Nonoy ang bilis mo kasi eh tuloy na-injure ako. Good luck din sa finals!

“Brent [Paraiso], Chabi [Chabi Yo], CJ [Cansino], good luck with Ateneo!” his tweet read.
