    RR Pogoy is set to make his return to Team Pilipinas while Thirdy Ravena also made it to the final 12 of the Nationals' crucial tiff against Kazakhstan in the Fiba Basketball World Cup Asian qualifiers.

    Pogoy and Ravena join by Andray Blatche, Japeth Aguilar, Mark Barroca, Jayson Castro, Poy Erram, June Mar Fajardo, Marcio Lassiter, Paul Lee, Gabe Norwood and Troy Rosario.
