Lady Eagles team manager Tony Liao said in a report on sports website Spin.ph that the versatile attacker will undergo surgery after the Holy Week break.
“Confirmed ACL. For surgery na po siya ,” Liao said, as per Spin.ph.
Madayag emerged from the Ateneo bench to become the best server of the first round while averaging 7.3 points per game.
