Marvin L. Cruz (born December 31, 1985) is a Filipino Professional basketball player.

Player Profile[edit]

This 5-foot-8 former UP Fighting Maroons is considered to be the league’s newest generation of point guards after the golden era of Johnny Abarrientos, Hector Calma, Dindo Pumaren, Ronnie Magsanoc, and Gerry Esplana, among others.

He is cat-quick and can easily finish a fastbreak. He was one of the premier amateur point guards in the country during his stint with UP in the UAAP.

Player Achievements[edit]

RP-Harbour Team[edit]

Cruz once played as starting point guard for the SEABA gold winner RP-Harbour Team.

He led the PBL in assists and made the Mythical Five, then he also made the All-Tournament team in the PBL Silver Cup while playing for Toyota Balintawak.

With UP Integrated School, he led his team to its first-ever UAAP juniors title in 2002, when he was also named Finals Most Valuable Player. He was also a Mythical Five member in the 69th UAAP season.
