PASIG—As expected, Robert Bolick and CJ Perez made their way to the Gilas Pilipinas Men practice, and Kiefer Ravena took part in his first basketball practice since the FIBA-imposed 18-month ban on him.

But Stanley Pringle made a surprise appearance as well in the national team's third training session for the FIBA World Cup at the Meralco Gym on Monday night.

Although he will not be with Gilas for the FIBA worlds due to him only being eligible as a naturalized player, Pringle still showed up to help the national pool gear up for the said event.

Japeth Aguilar, Raymond Almazan, Mark Barroca, Poy Erram, June Mar Fajardo, Marcio Lassiter, Paul Lee, Roger Pogoy, and Troy Rosario were the other attendees for Monday night, totaling the players present at 13.
