MANILA--FIBA officially released the balls that will be used for the FIBA OQT and the Rio Olympics.

The said balls bear a special design at the white part, which in a statement by FIBA on Friday (Philippine Time) "reflects the movement and agility of the most elite players in the world and will add excitement to the game for players and spectators alike."

The FIBA OQT ball was actually used during Gilas Pilipinas' friendly against Iran at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Wednesday night.
