National University Bulldog Dave Ildefonso faced his contemporary University of Santo Tomas Growling Tiger CJ Cansino in the UAAP.

Ildefonso hold on to win against Cansino, 75-70, but the two went head-to-head in the court.

Ildefonso scored 19 points and grabbed seven rebounds while Cansino recorded team-high 20 points and 10 rebounds.

“Nung laban namin kanina, it was really a great game between us since may bond kami,” said Ildefonso.

“We really know each other well, kung may sagutan man don, kulitan lang yon sa court,” he added.

Cansino echoed Ildefonso’s statement, saying that it’s just basketball.

“Magkaibigan kami ni Dave. Medyo naglolokohan lang kami kanina,” he revealed.

“It’s just a game, basketball lang.”

Well, the fans of the UAAP will see more of Cansino-Ildefonso as both men are still in their first playing year.
