Gilas Pilipinas arrived in Phnom Penh early Sunday morning, and shortly after, the roster was announced. The team is determined to regain the gold in the biennial showpiece, despite the opposition significantly improving in recent years.
The veteran guard Ross expressed confidence in the team’s chances of winning the gold medal. He said the team has been working hard for the past two and a half weeks to build team chemistry and camaraderie and get used to playing with each other. However, he acknowledged that the other competing teams had improved significantly and that the Filipinos must be prepared for a tough challenge.
“We like our chances, but we know that these teams aren’t just going to lay down. A lot of teams are beefing up their rosters,” Ross said. “But all the guys are ready for the challenge. We can’t wait to get started.”
