Alex Cabagnot wants to try out for spot in Gilas team for SEA Games
MANILA, Philippines—Alex Cabagnot has been vocal about his interest to represent the country in the coming Southeast Asian Games and the San Miguel Beer guard expressed that desire anew.
“Is there a tryout for SeaGames ? I would love to try and compete for one of those elusive roster spot. #WithAllDueRespectOfCourse,” Cabagnot wrote on his Twitter account Monday.
It’s possible that the Philippines ends up fielding in an all-PBA team in the SEA Games and if that’s the case, Cabagnot certainly has a chance to earn a slot in the lineup.
The 36-year-old Cabagnot wore the country’s colors for the first time in September last year in the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifiers.
Cabagnot already has a decorated basketball career with eight PBA championships and one Finals MVP award but one thing missing from his trophy case is a gold medal.
