Let’s take a step back and get to know more about CJ Cansino. His full name, his dreams, his passion, and his favorites.
University of Sto. Tomas may have found the answer to its recent struggles in UAAP basketball in the form of homegrown super rookie CJ Cansino.
The former UAAP juniors MVP has been consistently putting up monster numbers, as well as displaying skill, and leadership way beyond his years.
Let’s take a step back, however, and get to know more about CJ Cansino. His full name, his dreams, his passion, and his favorites.
His FULL name.
Everybody knows him as CJ, but what’s his full name, you may ask? He was born Crispin John Cansino on October 27, 1999 to parents Rowena and Ariel.
His basketball background.
Cansino practically burst onto the scene in the UAAP juniors to eventually bag the highest individual honor of the tournament last year. But it shouldn’t have a surprise, since he was already balling at age 11.
The players he look up to the most are all-around beasts such as Russell Westbrook and Jayson Castro, which is apt since he became the first rookie to ever tally a triple-double in the UAAP seniors since 2003. His favorite basketball teams are Ginebra and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
CJ Cansino is currently taking up Marketing, but says his dream is to one day make it to the NBA. He likes collection sneakers and you can see glimpses of his shoe game on his IG feed.
