PLAYER'S BIO


College career Cruz studied at the Colegio de San Juan de Letran and played for the Letran Knights varsity squad. Teaming up with Kevin Alas and Raymond Almazan, and later Kevin Racal and Rey Nambatac, he propelled the Knights to the finals in 2012 and 2013, only to lose to the San Beda Red Lions on both occasions. After missing the Final Four the year before, he flourished under new coach Aldin Ayo, leading the Knights in his final collegiate year. In 2015, he led the Knights to an NCAA Championship against their archnemesis San Beda, ending a 10 year title drought. He was awarded the Finals MVP. Professional career Cruz was drafted 30th overall in the 2015 Rookie Draft by the Star Hotshots. Unlike his fellow rookies, he signed a one-conference contract with the Hotshots. In his PBA debut he tallied 7 points, 2 rebounds and 1 steal in a loss to the San Miguel Beermen On May 2016, Cruz was traded by Star to Phoenix Fuel Masters in a three-team trade that also involved GlobalPort Batang Pier. Personal life Cruz is the younger brother of former UP Fighting Maroons star and PBA player Marvin Cruz. His favorite player growing up is Jimmy Alapag. He took up a degree in Operations Management and hopes to start a business someday.
