Ronald "Ronnie" Magsanoc (born April 11, 1966) is a Filipino coach, basketball analyst, and retired professional basketball player in the PBA. He was known for his moniker The Point Laureate.

Collegiate career[edit]

Magsanoc played collegiate ball with Benjie Paras, Eric Altamirano, and Joey Guanio for the University of the Philippines basketball squad, then coached by Joe Lipa, where he helped the Fighting Maroons win the UAAP championship in 1986, their first basketball championship in 48 years.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Magsanoc joined the league in 1988 and became the lead point guard for Shell team that not only had 1989 MVP winner Benjie Paras but also had perennial best import winner Bobby Parks.

He was also a member of the all-professional Philippine National Team that took home the silver medal in the 1990 Asian Games.[2]

After his long stint with Shell, he also played for Sta. Lucia (after being traded for Gerry Esplana) and lastly, Purefoods.

In 2000, he was named a member of the PBA's 25 Greatest Players.[3]

In 2013, he was enshrined into the PBA Hall of Fame, along with Paras, Lim Eng Beng, and the late Ed Ocampo.[4]
