Cani gets green light to play for Season 78
"He can play." - Ateneo's Richard Palou on Hubert Cani.

Good news for student-athletes, particularly Ateneo's Hubert Cani.

With the UAAP residency rule no longer in effect thanks to Senator Pia Cayetano's RA 10676 signed recently by President Noynoy Aquino, it seems that the talented recruit will indeed be allowed to play.

Reached for a comment by ABS-CBN Sports after their UAAP Board meeting, Ateneo's Richard Palou confirmed that the point guard will suit up for the Blue Eagles.

"He can play," he said in a message to ABS-CBN Sports.

Cayetano announced he passing of the new law last week. The senator also lashed out on the initial news that Cani won't be allowed to play for Season 78.

The Blue Eagles open their season against the FEU Tamaraws on Sunday, September 6, at the Mall of Asia Arena.
