Alex Vincent Crisano (born February 26, 1976) is a Filipino-American former professional basketball player.
He was directly hired by the Barangay Ginebra Kings in 2000. However, his stay with the Gin Kings was cut at the end of the 2004 PBA Fiesta Conference. He also played for the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters that were known as the Phone Pals.
Return to Barangay Ginebra
Before the start of the 2008 PBA Fiesta Conference, the management of Ginebra announced that Crisano will return for the team. From there, his game as an energy player and a crowd favorite was seen by the fans. He helped the team beat the Air21 Express in the finals 4-3.
After two conferences with Ginebra, he was acquired by the Barako Bull Energy Boosters during the 2009 PBA Fiesta Conference where he became the leader of the team. At the 2009-10 Philippine Cup, he had a career season averaging 8.9 points 6.2 rebounds and 32 percent from the 3-point line. However, the team did not make the playoffs finishing at the bottom of the standings with a 3-15 record. Also, due to financial problems of the franchise, he was not able to stay with the team for the following conference.
He was chosen as one of the players for the Philippine Patriots in the Asean Basketball League alongside Allan Salangsang and Egay Billones to defend their title. However, they lost to the Chang Thailand Slammers in the finals.
