Player Profile

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.

During his rookie year, he played the support role but did well. Slowly, after Red Bull traded away its main men like Willie Miller, Kerby Raymundo, Lordy Tugade, Enrico Villanueva, and Mick Pennisi, Baguio then emerged as the team's leading scorer and main skipper. The then-budding PBA superstar proved that he was worth a player.

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 2008, Baguio was named into the National Team under his former mentor in Red Bull, Coach Yeng Guiao.

In 2009, Baguio, reportedly unhappy with his tenure in Burger King, was dealt to the Barangay Ginebra Kings. Now he was part of the super talented backcourt of the Gin Kings, together with National Teammate Jayjay Helterbrand, Mark Caguioa and Ronald Tubid. He was then with his class 2003 batchmates, Enrico Villanueva, Sunday Salvacion and Ronald Tubid.

Baguio, led the Powerade Team Pilipinas into its 8th place Tianjin cruise. He is the revelation of that Team Pilipinas, that wowed, international basketball fans.
