Raymark Woo of De La Salle University is suspected to have suffered a left anterior cruciate ligament injury.
De La Salle University ace Raymark Woo is feared to have sustained a left anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear Wednesday after he landed awkwardly during the closing stretch of the first set against Adamson.
Woo was helped back to the Green Spikers’ locker room and never returned to the match DLSU surrendered 24-26, 26-24, 20-25, 26-28, to the Falcons in the 79th UAAP men’s volleyball tournament at The Arena in San Juan.
“Parang may tumunog. Masakit pero sanay na kasi ako dun sa sakit kaya di ko masabi eh,” said the fourth year player, who landed on one foot after trying to reach for an attack near the net.
Woo, who is averaging at least 13 points per game, wore a leg brace and will have his knee examined.
“Parang baka ACL yata sabi nu’ng therapist,” said DLSU coach Nes Pamilar, whose squad dropped its fourth match in five outings to tie Adamson at sixth to seventh spots.
Woo skipped Season 77 after suffering an ACL tear on the same knee while playing in a ‘ligang labas’ during the offseason.
The Taft-based squad will take on University of the East on Sunday before facing three-peat seeking Ateneo de Manila on March 4 to close the elims first round.
