MANILA, Philippines—New-look Gilas Pilipinas had a successful run in the first window of the Fiba Asia Cup 2025 qualifiers, but there’s going to be a long wait before the national team plunges back into action again.

The national team call-ups will go back to their respective teams in the PBA and overseas leagues before they congregate again to prepare before July as Gilas vies for an Olympics spot through the the 2024 Fiba Olympic Qualifying Tournament.

Gilas Pilipinas begins its bid to qualify for the Fiba Asia Cup 2025 as the first window of competition kicks off on February 22.


The national team looks to give coach Tim Cone a winning start in the Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers in a road game against Hong Kong before Gilas Pilipinas hosts Chinese Taipei at home on February 25.


In the first window of the Asia Cup qualifiers, 24 games–including the Gilas assignments–are scheduled across four game days from February 22 to 26.
