Former USJ-R star Luther Justiniani reminisces playing career

By Kevin Estrada

The final buzzer had sounded for Luther Justiniani in his playing career, but for him, the game of life continues.

Touted as one of the Cebu’s best gunners, Justiniani was a legendary figure for USJ-R, with the guard sharing the court with two of the biggest names in the Queen City of the South: Greg Slaughter and June Mar Fajardo.

After five years with the Jaguars, including a finals stint in 2008 where they lost to the Slaughter-powered UV Lancers in four games, Justiniani stepped out of the limelight for quite some time.

And now, BurnSports.Ph had caught up with the former CESAFI All-Star, as he had his hands full on his 10-year old son, Sean Lucas Justiniani, who is looking up to him as his inspiration.

“Compare right now, maliit pero malakas at saka ambilis nilang tumakbo,” he said.
