GILAS Pilipinas had a film session before walking through the plays in its final practice on Thursday at the Meralco Gym before leaving for the Jones Cup.
The national team spent the first hour of training watching videos of their foes in the annual tournament that will also serve as warmup for the Southeast Asian Games and Fiba Asia Cup next month.
All players were present in the training supervised by deputy coaches Jong Uichico, Josh Reyes and Jimmy Alapag.
Head coach Chot Reyes is in Los Angeles for a business trip but will join the team in Taiwan in time for the tournament.
The Filipino dribblers leave for Taipei on Friday afternoon before taking on Canada on Saturday at the Taipei Peace International Basketball Hall.
Gilas will also play the two Taipei squads, South Korea, Japan, Lithuania, Iraq, India and Iran.
