GILAS Pilipinas was nearly at full-strength on Wednesday night when it wrapped up a string of two-a-day practices at the Meralco gym.

Terrence Romeo finally reported for duty after missing the first four days following a previous commitment abroad as all but one of the players in a pool that looks trimmed to 16 men showed up in their night session.

Romeo joined Jayson Castro, June Mar Fajardo, Calvin Abueva, Japeth Aguilar, Gabe Norwood, Troy Rosario, Matthew Wright, Raymond Almazan, and Allein Maliksi.

Carl Cruz, Roger Pogoy, Mac Belo, Kevin Alask, and Kiefer Ravena completed the players in attendance.

Andray Blatche was the only one missing as the Gilas naturalized player is set to arrive on Sunday.
