    TEAM Pilipinas may end up playing one tune-up game before two crunch matches in the sixth ans final window of the Fiba Basketball World Cup Asian qualifiers.

    National coach Yeng Guiao bared the squad is scheduled to play a tune-up game against Meralco on Friday, a day before leaving for Doha for their away match against Qatar on February 21.

    “Baka Friday, maka-set up kami ng practice game with Meralco,” said Guiao.

      The tune-up game also comes during the PBA break for the qualifiers.
