2023 FIBA World Cup

Pogoy out as SBP registers 12 TNT players for 21-man Gilas pool


The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas has registered 21 players for Gilas Pilipinas’ pool in the FIBA portal for the upcoming second window of the 2023 FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.

Surprisingly though, Roger Pogoy was not part of the list.

Pogoy, a mainstay in Gilas since 2016, has been nursing a calf injury that made him miss the last two games of TNT.
