MANILA--Gilas Pilipinas Men will play three games in the final window of the FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers from Feb. 18-22 at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

As announced by FIBA on Sunday night, Gilas Men will play South Korea twice with a game against Indonesia in between.

South Korea begged off from competing in the second window last month in Manama, Bahrain, leading to the postponement of its supposed match against Gilas Men there.

South Korea was spared of any sanction from FIBA, but the team will have to play four matches in five nights.

South Korea will first take on Gilas Men on Feb. 18 and then face Indonesia next on Feb. 19 in what would be its second window assignments.

South Korea's third window officially begins on Feb. 20 against Thailand before facing Gilas Men again on Feb. 22.

Gilas Men will battle Indonesia again on Feb. 20.

Feb. 21 will be reserved as the rest day for the Group A squads.

Like the November window, the February window will be played in a semi-bubble format due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
