PASIG--The first Gilas practice for 2018 turned out to be a very special one as the current crop of the Gilas pool and the future national team stars practiced together at the Meralco Gym.

"Both the mature ones and the younger ones in one court is simply a sight to behold," SBP chairman emeritus Manny Pangilinan told the media after the practice on Monday night. "It is a heartening experience."

He even thought both the senior team and the Cadets will lock horns.

"Well, I thought they would play tonight—a scrimmage," Pangilinan said specifically.

The practice lasted for only 45 minutes with only shooting drills and some play setting as the main components of the session.

"I think Chot [Reyes] intends to mix them up so they would learn how to play with each other," Pangilinan aired his thoughts on the practice.

Still, he hopes to see the Cadets take on the veterans in the near future.

"I’d like to see them play the mature ones and the young ones," continued Pangilinan. "It is up to Coach Chot."
