CJ Cansino wants to move on from grueling loss against La Salle


The UST Growling Tigers just suffered a 41-point blowout against La Salle Green Archers, 69-110, on Sunday.

Not only did the Growling Tigers gave current UST head coach Aldin Ayo’s worst loss in his coaching career, but it also jeopardized their Final Four bid this season.

However, UST rookie CJ Cansino remains confident for his team’s chances for the playoffs.

“Sabi ni coach [Ayo] we just need to move on. May chance pa kami for Final Four, so mas kailangan namin paghandaan ang next three games,” said Cansino who had 14 points and nine rebounds.

It looks like that 19-year-old-rookie and the rest of the Tigers are really leaving everything behind — even the questionable calls that also affected their game.

“Ayoko sanang sabihin pero wala na kasi sa kontrol namin yung officiating, kasi meron mga [unnecessary na] hawak-hawak,” Cansino revealed.

“Pero okay lang kasama naman sa game yun. Siguro hindi lang kami nakapag-adjust sa tawag ng mga referees, so ififigure-out na lang namin sa next game yun,” he added.

Although Cansino admitted that he lost his call during some bad calls that were slapped against him, none of that already matters to him.

“Frustrated lang siguro ako sa tawag ng mga referee, pero wala na ako concern doon,” he ended.
