MANILA, Philippines — Schonny Winston was off the bench for La Salle in his playoff playoff game as he spent his final UAAP season from the stands with his father on Sunday at the Mall of Asia Arena.

Winston, who was the top scorer in the first round of the ’85 season before suffering a calf injury, cited a report saying “he can’t come with the team.”

“Sprained calf lol? … a torn calf. I will always support my brothers, whether I am allowed on the bench or have to buy tickets for the game. I can’t stop my love for them,” Winston tweeted afterwards. La Salle’s 80-76 loss to Adamson.

The two-year-old guard has missed four games and only played a total of 22 seconds in the last three games of the second round. Although he missed the chance to help in the winning or returning match, he expressed his gratitude to the team.

“Thank you, La Salle. I will always be an Archer at heart. Few people know this, but I suffered a calf tear after the first round and have been trying to recover since, but I guess it’s not wasn’t fast enough…wish I could have competed – Love y’all thanks for the support!! he wrote.

La Salle coach Derick Pumaren declined to comment on the report, saying the school would issue a statement.

“Well, I don’t have a comment on that. I think in due course La Salle will issue a statement on that,” Pumaren said.

“It’s internal with us at the moment. Let’s keep it that way.

But Pumaren said Winston was allowed to train and play without restrictions.

“Yes yes. He was allowed to train without restrictions. He was allowed to play without restrictions,” he said.

This has been Pumaren’s problem throughout the season as they have missed players in most of their matches, missing Michael Phillips due to dizziness and headaches and Kevin Quiambao, who went into health protocols and safety, in their last two games.
