    AFTER being involved in a brawl in a preseason tournament, John Amores got into a fight under the bright lights of the NCAA.

    The Jose Rizal University forward went on a rampage, hitting three College of St. Benilde players on Tuesday in San Juan.

    After a fight looked to have been averted and Amores pulled back to the Bombers bench, he jumped over the benches and shoved his way past crowd of players and officials to the other side of the court.

    Coach Charles Tiu fears Pasturan may have suffered a fracture and Davis a concussion.

    "Jimboy got a big black eye. Taine Davis got sucker punched and he didn't do anything. He was dizzy for a while. Those are the two guys who got hurt. Thankfully they're okay but we'll take them to the hospital to see if they sustained anything worse," said Tiu.
