University of Santo Tomas’ super rookie has been playing with one good leg for the majority of the second round of the UAAP Season 81 Men’s Basketball tournament.
Saturday afternoon, he went down again.
The 6-foot-1 utility guard went for a drive against David Murrell with 5:57 left in the second stanza. However, he landed awkwardly, clutching his left leg as she crumbled on the floor.
Unlike before, when he willed himself back up, Cansino could not muster enough strength to stand. The 19-year-old had to be stretchered to the back, as his mother raced from the crowd to be with her son in the locker room.
In an update by ABS-CBN Sports, the Growling Tigers’ medical team is hoping that it is just a mild sprain.
Cansino is averaging 13.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game.
UST are facing a 38-42 deficit at halftime against the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons.
