BIÑAN—Kevin Quiambao gets a chance to experience what it is like to play at the Philippine Arena in Bocaue as he has been inserted into Gilas Pilipinas' final lineup against Jordan in the last game of its campaign in the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers on Monday night.

Quiambao will take over the spot of Calvin Oftana, who played sparingly on Friday night against Lebanon.

The other 11 players from that Gilas win, Mason Amos, Justin Brownlee, June Mar Fajardo, Jordan Heading, Jamie Malonzo, Ray-Ray Parks, CJ Perez, Dwight Ramos, Scottie Thompson, and Kiefer and Thirdy Ravena, have been called up anew against Jordan.

In effect, Jerom Lastimosa and Schonny Winston will need to wait for a while before they could get their Gilas debuts.

Jordan has already booked its place in the FIBA World Cup following the other Friday results, making their Monday night clash a no-bearing one.
