KUALA LUMPUR - Gilas Pilipinas will play with only 11 players in its Southeast Asian Games debut as Mac Belo was not in uniform for its game against Thailand.
Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) deputy executive director Bernie Atienza said its request for Belo to take the place of Carl Bryan Cruz in the lineup has yet to be approved by organizers.
Atienza said they are still waiting for the letter of approval from the SEA Games organizers, but added Gilas is ready to take on the competition even with an incomplete lineup.
"We are ready (to play) with 11 (players)," said Atienza.
