Here’s the game schedule for the Gilas Pilipinas Philippines men’s national basketball team which is seeking double homecourt wins against Lebanon and Jordan in the 6th and final window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers.
The Gilas Pilipinas team will wrap up its games at the Asian Qualifiers looking to revenge win against Team Lebanon which bested the locals in their match-up last August 2022 during the 4th window which also saw NBA’s Filipino-American superstar Jordan Clarkson and international player Kai Sotto leading the team in winning against Saudi Arabia. The Philippines is also seeking to repeat its 5th window win against Jordan last November 2022.
The Philippines, one of the tournament’s host nations, carries a 5-3 win-loss record in the Asian Qualifiers and is the 3rd nation in Group E that has already qualified for the games, after Lebanon (1st, 7-1) and New Zealand (2nd, 6-2). Jordan is in 4th place (4-4) behind the Philippines.
The three best teams from Group E and Group F – currently top-billed by Australia, China, and Iran – will qualify for the FIBA Basketball World Cup scheduled for August 2023.
The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) announced the preliminary roster of players for the upcoming window, which includes PBA stars, UAAP luminaries, and international players. The SBP has yet to announce the final 12-man crew to play the two home games.
