2023 FIBA World Cup

Japeth Aguilar, Ian Sangalang out for Window 4


Two big men will not be part of Gilas Pilipinas Men’s campaign in the 2023 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers’ fourth window.

And it’s because of things beyond their control.

Japeth Aguilar is currently in isolation after he and his family contracted COVID-19.

Japeth’s wife Cassie tweeted the development.

Japeth last played for Gilas back in the 2019 World Cup.

Meanwhile, Ian Sangalang has begged off from Gilas duties as he has yet to recover from the wear and tear of the PBA Philippine Cup.

Yet to appear in practice are Northport’s Robert Bolick.

Consistent attendees for the practices are Kiefer Ravena, Thirdy Ravena, Ray Parks, Dwight Ramos, Carl Tamayo, Kevin Quiambao, Francis Lopez, Jamie Malonzo, Kevin Alas, and Calvin Oftana.

Kai Sotto already attended practice on Friday while Jordan Clarkson will join the team on Saturday.

Chris Newsome has also attended every session since Thursday while Raymond Almazan and Allein Maliksi joined the team on Friday as well.

Already out of the pool are San Miguel’s June Mar Fajardo and CJ Perez.

Gilas face Lebanon in Beirut on the 25th before hosting Saudi Arabia in Pasay City on the 29th.
