Mario Bonleon is out for the season.
Fresh from their worst loss in 10 years, the UST Growling Tigers were dealt with another huge blow after Mario Bonleon is set to miss the rest of Season 79 due to injury.
According to a report by The Varsitarian, the second-year guard aggravated the injury on his left hand Wednesday in UST's 62-100 defeat at the hands of La Salle.
Bonleon is set to undergo surgery next week and will be out for eight months.
"Dapat kasi nung off-season palang ipa-opera ko na kasi fractured na to," Bonleon told the Varsitarian.
"Gusto ko maglaro eh. Kaya I decided to play na lang kahit delikado," he added.
Bonleon was a key figure in the rotation of the Tigers last season, he averaged 4.6 points in three outings this year.
