CJ Perez of Lyceum and Abu Tratter of La Salle were the lone invitees from the “23-for-23” cadet pool who were present for the session.

Roger Pogoy also attended the training but was in street clothes.

Deputies Jong Uichico and Josh Reyes directed practice in lieu of coach Chot Reyes, who is currently in Japan for vacation.

PBA Officer-In-Charge Willie Marcial and deputy director for basketball operations Eric Castro also paid the national team a visit.

Gilas Pilipinas is gearing up for its game against Australia at Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne on February 22, before facing Japan again, this time at home at Mall of Asia Arena on February 25.
