PASIG--Now that the PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals is over, Gilas Pilipinas Men coach Yeng Guiao looks forward to reuniting with Junemar Fajardo, RR Pogoy, and Troy Rosario in practice.

In fact, he said that he wanted them back as soon as possible.

"We're expecting them [on] Monday," Guiao said after the national team's Friday night training at the Meralco Gym.

Fajardo's San Miguel Beermen finished off Rosario and Pogoy's TNT KaTropa in Game 6 of the finals later Friday at the Smart Araneta Coliseum in Quezon City, but Guiao said that he is expecting the three to come back on Monday even if the series went the full length.

Game 7 was supposed to take place on Sunday night.

Gilas Men had an earlier practice during the morning of Saturday.
