How times have changed.
With Gilas Pilipinas and Japan in a heated race for the third spot in Group F of the 2019 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers, Yeng Guiao made sure to go all-out against the lowly Kazakhstan team.
Headlining the cast is Greg Slaughter, who is making his seniors team debut.
Joining him are fellow Gin Kings Scottie Thompson, LA Tenorio, and Japeth Aguilar.
Moreover, the dream twin tower combination will finally come into fruition, as June Mar Fajardo also cracked the lineup.
Fellow Beermen Alex Cabagnot and Marcio Lassiter were also included.
Completing the cast are Beau Belga, Gabe Norwood, JP Erram, and Matthew Wright. Stanley Pringle was tapped to take the naturalized position spot.
The Philippines will enter Friday’s game at the SM Mall of Asia Arena with a 5-3 record. Kazakhstan, on the other hand, is in fifth place in Group F with a 3-5 slate.
