PASIG—With 13 players showing up on Monday night, Gilas Pilipinas Men coach Yeng Guiao finally got to accomplish what he wants to infuse early into the national team practice for the FIBA World Cup.
This after only eight or nine players were present in the practices last week.
"We have enough people to go five-on-five, so this is our first complete practice," Guiao said after practice at the Meralco Gym.
He even added, "It's our best practice so far."
He then thanked the newcomers to the practice, CJ Perez, Robert Bolick, Kiefer Ravena, and Stanley Pringle, for joining.
"We're very appreciative of the guys who came in," continued Guiao. "We had a really good practice today."
