BIÑAN--His team may be the champion of the PBA D-League Foundation Cup, but for Phoenix's Mike Tolomia, the party can be set for a later date as he and four of his teammates set their attention to the FIBA Asia Challenge in Tehran next month.

"Wala na kaming time na mag-celebrate. Derecho na kami sa Gilas practice," Tolomia said to sportswriters at the Alonte Sports Arena.

On Friday, Tolomia, along with fellow Accelerators Ed Daquioag, Mac Belo, Russel Escoto, and RR Pogoy, was named to Gilas' final lineup for the qualifier to the FIBA Asia Cup.

Asked about his expectations for the international tournament, Tolomia that he will just enjoy the experience he can get from it.

"Wala akong ine-expect talaga sa kung anong mangyayari sa Iran kasi first time ko sa FIBA Asia," he said specifically.
