University of Santo Tomas head coach Aldin Ayo broke his silence on Sunday evening.

In a statement sent to Tiebreaker Times, the two-time collegiate champion coach opened by saying that the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to differences in the ways people adapt.

“These times of a Covid-19 pandemic crisis are very trying times for all of us throughout the country and of the world,” his statement opened.

“We have varying approaches and adaptation to cope with the crisis. And as we have differences in strokes for different folks, we labor to respect such differences and allow generously for people to grow in the best way they could in whatever situation best fitting them.”

And this is what happened between him and Growling Tigers’ UAAP Season 82 skipper CJ Cansino.

Last Thursday, Cansino and the Growling Tigers parted ways.

The 20-year-old Cansino has gone on record to say that he did not know the reason for his removal from the team.

Ayo shed light on this, saying that there were ‘marked differences’ between him and his player that ultimately led to his expulsion from the Growling Tigers.

“The circumstances of life today have brought out the marked differences between my orientation in life and the fundamental option of our player CJ Cansino,” he said.

“We have found that it would be best that we part ways and allow maximum growth for each other.”

The incoming third year UST head coach expressed his gratitude for the two years of service the 6-foot-2 utility guard.

“We wish him the Best of Providence in his new endeavor with a different team. We express our gratitude for the years and effort he poured so generously for UST.”
