UE center Bartolome to get stitches after cut to eyebrow
Will Bartolome busts open his eyebrow midway in the fourth quarter when UST import William Afoakwah's elbow landed on his face

MANILA, Philippines – Back-up center Will Bartolome will have his left eyebrow stitched up at the UERM Hospital after suffering a nasty cut during the UE Red Warriors’ 71-61 victory over the UST Growling Tigers in the UAAP Season 79 men’s basketball tournament on Saturday, October 8 at the Mall of Asia Arena.

The 6-foot-6 big man busted open his eyebrow midway in the fourth quarter, with the game already decided, when UST import William Afoakwah’s elbow landed on his face as he grabbed the rebound.

Bartolome bled profusely and was taken out of the game. He did not return.

Bartolome, who told Rappler the cut was as big as his pinky finger, finished with 6 points and 3 rebounds in almost 18 minutes of play.

UE, which won two straight in 8 games, next faces the FEU Tamaraws on Sunday, October 16. Bartolome expects to play that game. – with reports from Jane Bracher/Rappler.com
