    VETERAN Val Acuna was rushed to the hospital after a hard collision with Chris De Chavez during the PBA 3x3 game between Purefoods TJ Titans and Platinum Karaoke on Wednesday.

    Acuna fell on the floor after a clash of heads with the 6-foot-5 De Chavez, and had to be stretchered out of the Ynares Sports Arena on the way to the nearby Medical City.
