Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes hopes that the Philippine National Men’s Basketball team will be able to practice as a whole team before their game against Japan this November 24.
Coach Reyes made this appeal after announcing that Gilas will be resuming their practice this November 3 and will have at least three weeks to prepare for their first qualifying match for the 2019 FIBA World Cup.
Coach Reyes insisted on the importance of practice by pointing out that during the 2017 FIBA Asia Cup, the national team only had two weeks of practice and the players were never complete.
During the 29th FIBA Asia Cup in Lebanon, Gilas, who previously place in the Top 4, fell to seventh place.
Meanwhile, Japan has already unveiled their 24-man player pool for the upcoming game in Tokyo.
