Will UAAP Juniors MVP CJ Cansino be the next King Tiger?
The first Thomasian Juniors MVP since Kevin Ferrer is still a long way before getting considered as such, but will be in the years to come, if he continues to improve and become the dominant player he was in high school.
As reported Monday night, Cansino said to ABS-CBN Sports that he is indeed staying with the Growling Tigers, joining new coach Aldin Ayo and his famed "Mayhem" defense.
The two-time champion coach posted on his Twitter account Monday night, confirming the news that the teen is indeed staying in España, with Cansino posing with Ayo and his staff.

The swing will share his rookie playing time with team veterans such as Regie Boy Basibas, Jordan Sta. Ana, and the returning Embons Bonleon for Season 81, which is half a year away.
That means more practice time for the 6'3" homegrown forward.
