MANILA, Philippines — Gilas Pilipinas is set to play longtime rival South Korea twice and another against Indonesia in the third window of the Fiba Asia Cup 2021 Qualifiers in February in a bubble in Clark, Pampanga.

The Philippines opens its campaign against Korea on Feb. 18 before taking on Indonesia two days later.


The second meeting between Gilas and Korea will be on Feb. 22.

Korea missed last month’s bubble due to health and safety concerns brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Gilas currently leads Group A with a 3-0 record after coming off a sweep of Thailand in the second window last month in Manama, Bahrain.

The Philippine team is expected to again be bolstered by PBA players after going with an all-amateur roster against the Thais.

The latest window could also see Ateneo center Angelo Kouame make his national team debut as a naturalized Filipino.
