MANILA, Philippines—University of Santo Tomas star sophomore Milena Alessandirini may have suffered a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in her left knee against Far Eastern University on Saturday, initial diagnosis say.

The Filipino-Italian outside spiker had to be stretchered off the playing floor then, was rushed to UST Hospital.

It was a tough blow for the Golden Tigresses as they went on to lose in four sets to the Lady Tamaraws that brought their record down to 2-2.
