/ 01:48 PM October 09, 2018

University of Santo Tomas center Steve Akomo suffered a head trauma and is confined at UST Hospital in Manila, as per The Varsitarian, the school’s official publication.


Akomo sustained the head injury after getting hit with what appeared to be a shoulder block from Adamson big man Papi Sarr last September 22.

He also has a blood clot in his brain, according to reports.


The 6-foot-8 Akomo has already missed the Growling Tigers’ last two games against La Salle and University of the East.

UST is currently in sixth place in the standings with a 2-4 record. The Tigers face fourth-running University of the Philippines next on Wednesday.
