Cyrus M. Baguio (born August 19, 1980 in Iligan City) is a professional basketball player in the Philippine Basketball Association for the Alaska Aces. He is a former stalwart of the UST Growling Tigers during his college tenure with the team. The former UST star was known for his open court forays and one-on-one skills. Upon arriving in Alaska, many thought Baguio would be like a square peg in a round hole because the squad is known for its triangle-offense and deliberate style, a complete opposite to his uptempo game. But, he proved all doubters wrong. Baguio fit in right away, often leading the Aces' offense. The result was, the Alaska Aces winning their 13th championship with the PBA Fiesta Conference Cup. Cyrus Baguio was given the Finals Co-MVP together with L.A. Tenorio. Baguio is also a long time AND 1 endorser.
He got married to Katie Uy in Antipolo City last May 28, 2011.
The guard is known for his dunks and acrobatic moves, thus his moniker "Skyrus." He was drafted by Red Bull in 2003 as the fourteenth overall. Before the draft, many basketball pundits were expecting him to be a first round draftee because of his illustrious college career at University of Santo Tomas. But during draft day, he was only picked in the second round causing a shock to many basketball observers.
He led his team in scoring and in other departments during his time with Red Bull. And on his last year with the team, he ended his stint still scorching the net by being among the top 10 leading scorers in the league, and by being an All-Star caliber player. During the latter part of the 2008-09 PBA season, he along with Red Bull teammate Celino Cruz were traded to the Air21 Express for future picks. This trade then led Yeng Guiao to resign as Red Bull coach.
In the middle of the eliminations of the 2010 Fiesta Conference, Barangay Ginebra Kings shipped the high-flying Baguio via a blockbuster one-on-one trade to Alaska Aces for 2-time MVP Willer Miller. In his debut game with the Alaska Aces on April 30, 2010, he sparked a fourth quarter rally by playing tough defense, hustle and scoring 12 of his 14 points in the final canto to help his team to a come-from-behind win over his former team, the Barangay Ginebra Kings.
