PASIG--Raymond Almazan, Mark Barroca, Robert Bolick, Paul Lee, and CJ Perez make up the remainder of the final lineup for Gilas Pilipinas Men for the FIBA World Cup.
As per a tweet by the SBP on Sunday night, the said players will join Japeth Aguilar, Andray Blatche, June Mar Fajardo, Gabe Norwood, RR Pogoy, Kiefer Ravena, and Troy Rosario in the "Final 12" of Gilas Men to Foshan.
This means that Matt Wright and Poy Erram, who recently got hurt during practice, were the final cuts from the pool.
Guiao already said in separate interviews recently that Aguilar, Blatche, Fajardo, Norwood, Pogoy, and Rosario are cinches for the final Gilas Men lineup.
He then said last June that he is grooming Ravena to take over the Gilas Men point guard chore from Jayson Castro.
Interestingly enough, Guiao somehow gave a hint on the "Final 12" on Sunday night as it was the exact lineup that played Adelaide in the tail end of their two-game tuneup series at the Meralco Gym.
