Kiefer Ravena bannered the list of players who made the final Gilas lineup set to play in a road game against Indonesia on Feb. 23 to start the 2021 FIBA Asia Cup qualifiers.
Gilas head coach Mark Dickel bared the composition of the 12-man squad on Wednesday night after the team’s training. Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas formally announced the composition of the team through their Twitter account.
PBA players CJ Perez, Troy Rosario, Poy Erram, RR Pogoy, Abu Tratter and Justin Chua made the cut together with Dwight Ramos, Matt Nieto, Isaac Go, Juan Gomez de Liano and Thirdy Ravena.
“Look, it was not an easy team to pick,” said Dickel. “We had numerous combinations that we could have gone with, and in a few positions we felt like we had covered it with some young players, so, they had an advantage thinking towards the future.”
Javee Mocon, Jaydee Tungcab and Rey Suerte were listed as reserves.
Gilas is set to fly to Indonesia on Friday.
