University of the Philippines'Juan Gomez de Liano is only wishing University of Sto. Tomas rookie CJ Cansino the best as he recovers from an ACL injury.
"It’s sad to see a brother down on the ground. All the best to him," he said.
Gomez de Liano and Cansino share the same trainer in Patrick Tancioco of Better Basketball PH, and the two have known each other since the tryouts for the Philippine national under-16 team.
That's why it was tough for last season's Rookie of the Year to see his friend go down injured in the second quarter of UST's 83-69 defeat to UP on Saturday.
"From what I saw, there was no contact. It was his landing lang talaga. Pero from the previous games, di ba CJ has been getting injured din? I hope he’s all right. I’m praying for him," he said.
"I just told him to stay strong and I’ll pray for him," he said.
