    GILAS Pilipinas will play Korea twice in the third window of the 2021 Fiba Asia Cup qualifiers come February.

    Fiba released a schedule for the last window of the qualifiers for the continental tilt, giving the Philippines a favorable draw for the scheduled bubble in Clark.

    Gilas will play Korea on Feb. 18, actually the rescheduled game originally slated in the second window in Manama, Bahrain last November.

    Indonesia tests the home team on Feb. 20, while the second clash between the Filipinos and Koreans will take place on Feb. 22.

    It currently stands with a 3-0 win-loss slate in Group A. The Nationals only need one more victory to formalize its ticket to the continental tourney in Lebanon next year.

    Korea, meanwhile, is facing a grueling schedule in the said window.
