Nicole Tiamzon of University of the Philippines is taken out of the court after sustaining a right ankle sprain in the second set.
University of the Philippines’ veteran hitter Nicole Tiamzon went down with a right ankle sprain after an awkward landing near the closing stretch of the second set in the Lady Maroons' battle against Far Eastern University in the 79th UAAP women’s volleyball tournament Wednesday.
Tiamzon was helped to the bench by team officials and medics with the Lady Maroons trailing, 20-23, in the second frame of the match held at The Arena in San Juan.
There was an inflammation on the graduating player’s ankle when medics removed her shoe to put an icepack on her ankle.
