Gilas planes back home in the early afternoon of July 24.Reyes had submitted a 24-man pool for the Fiba Asia that includes naturalized player Andray Blatche, and if the names playing in the Southeast Asian Games are put into consideration, most of those going to Beirut will come from the list of PBA veterans. The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas had named Baser Amer, Mike Tolomia, Vin Pessumal, Kevin Ferrer, Carl Cruz, Almond Vosotros and Troy Rosario together with amateurs Bobby Ray Parks, Kobe Paras, Raymar Jose and Kiefer Ravena.Energetic Fil-German Christian Standhardinger will be the 12th man for the team seeking to defend the gold medal in Kuala Lumpur.June Mar Fajardo, Terrence Romeo, Japeth Aguilar, Allein Maliksi, Raymond Almazan, Jason Castro, Kevin Alas, Norbert Torres, Gabe Norwood, RR Pogoy, Jio Jalalon, Mac Belo, Matthew Wright and Calvin Abueva are then left, and Reyes would just have to drop three names from there.Blatche has been the Philippines’ naturalized player since the World Cup in Seville, Spain, in 2014 and in case his camp doesn’t come to terms with the SBP this time, Reyes made it clear that the replacement would be Standhardinger.Born to a Filipino mother, Standhardinger will not be eligible to play for the Philippines in Fiba-run events as a natural born Filipino because he failed to obtain a Philippine passport before he turned 16.ADVERTISEMENT Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks PLAY LIST 01:40Filipinos turn Taal Volcano ash, plastic trash into bricks01:32Taal Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite Photo by: Tristan Tamayo/Inquirer.netTAIPEI – Chot Reyes will wait until the literal final hours of the July 25 deadline before submitting his “Fighting 12” for the Fiba Asia Championship for fear of disrupting what little chemistry this Gilas Pilipinas team playing in the Jones Cup has achieved.But, by using the simple process of elimination, basketball fans back home could figure out, more or less, the composition of the team that will try to win the Asian title for the first time since 1973.ADVERTISEMENT LIVE: Sinulog 2020 Grand Parade MOST READ Johnson dazzled by Ball magic for Lakers 787 earthquakes recorded in 24 hours due to restive Taal Volcano Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

St. Francis 17, St. Paul 7

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week After a crucial goal-line stand by St. Paul midway through the third quarter kept the score 17-7, the Swordsmen got the ball back with 5:15 left in the quarter and began to drive. Reaching the Golden Knights’ 40, the Swordsmen then fumbled not only the ball but their best chance at reaching the end zone in the second half. “We really made some mistakes tonight,’ said St. Paul running back Rigo Macias, who kicked off the scoring by returning the opening kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. “They played well, but we could have done better.’ Andrew Campa The Swordsmen entered Friday night’s game with the No. 2 passing game in league only to finish the night with only two yards passing on two completions. “I have to give a lot of credit to St. Francis,’ St. Paul coach Marijon Ancich said. “They completely took us out of our game tonight. They play very well, but we also made some bad mistakes and put ourselves in tough situations.’ LA CANADA — A lack of a passing game, coupled with a rash of mistakes, was all that was needed to thwart St. Paul High School in its Mission League opener as the Swordsmen fell to St. Francis. Despite a strong defensive performance, St. Paul (3-3, 1-0) was victimized by three turnovers and almost no passing game. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
