    BLACKWATER guard Paul Desiderio has confirmed that he has suffered an ACL injury in his left leg during a preseason game against TNT Tropang Giga last week, but but vowed to come back stronger once he recovers.

    Desiderio, 25, suffered the injury when he slipped awkwardly while going for a drive in the second quarter of the preseason game at the Moro Lorenzo Sports Center inside the Ateneo campus which the Bossing won, 81-79.

    An examination confirmed the ACL tear on Tuesday.
