The 28-year-old Standhardinger has impressed in his short stint with Gilas Pilipinas, leaving a strong impression thanks to his fearless style of play down low.

He averaged 11.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in his debut for the national team in the 2017 Jones Cup and upped his scoring in the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup, netting 15.5 markers and 6.5 boards through the three games in the group stages.
