In the 2018 Asian Games, Jordan Clarkson finally suited up for Gilas Pilipinas.
Clarkson led the Philippines to 5th place in the Asiad, the country's highest finish in the tournament in 16 years.
Jordan has his first international tournament under his belt and he's looking for more.
"More to come!" Clarkson said in an Instagram post.
"Can't wait for the next time I get to put the [Philippine] colors on. Laban Pilipinas! Puso!" he added.
The entire experience, where he ended up battling with traditional Gilas rivals China and South Korea, was one to remember for Clarkson.
"This experience was one I will never forget," Jordan said.
"So blessed to play for the country and represent the flag and the people," he added.
