Two UAAP stars are set to join MPBL clubs before they enter the 2024 PBA Rookie Draft.

Iloilo announced that it has signed CJ Cansino while Quezon has tapped L-Jay Gonzales.

This will mark the two reuniting with their former coaches in the MPBL.

Cansino will play for former University of the Philippines assistant coach MC Abolucion.

For Abolucion, getting Cansino was his first order of business in his first full season with the United Royals.

“Getting CJ on board was our top priority. His leadership and all-around skills make him a game-changer. He embodies the spirit we need for our upcoming MPBL campaign,” said the young head coach, who is also an assistant coach for National University.UAAP86-MBB-LJ-Gonzales-5190 CJ Cansino reunites with MC Abolucion in Iloilo; L-Jay Gonzales joins Eric Gonzales in Quezon Basketball MPBL News  - philippine sports news
