After making a crucial shot, Daniel was hit by Parks’ elbow when he tried to block the two-time UAAP most valuable player (MVP) from taking a jumper. Cameras captured a video of him spitting blood on the court. Reports said the young actor’s lower lip got stitched.

His loveteam partner, Kathryn Bernardo, in an interview said she was worried about what happened. The young star’s facial expressions showed her concern for Daniel.

The singer-actor was named Player of the Game along with a teammate, La Salle green archer Jeron Teng.
