    AS if the heartbreaking losses weren’t enough, College of St. Benilde suffered yet another blow in their NCAA men’s basketball campaign as it missed the services of star forward Paolo Taha against Letran Saturday.

    Taha, the league’s sixth-leading scorer with average of 15.4 points, along with 6.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 27.6 minutes per game, showed up at The Arena in San Juan in street clothes with a shoulder sling supporting his injured right shoulder.

    The 22-year-old forward suffered the injury in the Blazers’ 83-85 loss to Emilio Aguinaldo College just last Thursday in a collision against Generals slotman Cedric Happi.

    Taha said the injury was minor as he was just advised to rest.

    He hopes to be back in harness next week as the Blazers, in seventh place with a 5-9 win-loss card, are still mathematically alive in the playoff race.

    “Sino ba namang ayaw maglaro,” Taha said in a chat with Spin.ph while watching the EAC-Arellano curtain-raiser. “Pero kung pipilitin ko, baka mamaya lumala.”
