STANLEY Pringle is more than willing to represent the Philippines once more n the Southeast Asian Games.
Pringle is in line for another stint with the national team after he was included in the initial 24-man pool submitted by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas to the Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (Phisgoc).
While the initial list is subject to changes, Pringle is definitely a prime candidate to stay in the pool with the relaxed rules on eligibility in multisport competition that allowed him to play in the Asian Games in Jakarta last year.
Pringle reiterated his commitment to play for the national team if his name is called.
“When it comes to the national team, anytime they need me to come, and hopefully, I’m healthy enough, I’m there. SEA Games, anything,” the Fil-American guard said after Ginebra's win over Korean side LG Sakers in a tuneup game on Tuesday.
Pringle has seen limited action for Gilas in Fiba events due to its rules that only allows one naturalized player per team. Pringle is classified as a naturalized player having obtained his Philippine passport after the age of 16.
After missing a medal in the 2018 Asian Games in Indonesia, Pringle said he is motivated to win one for the Philippines if he makes the final roster for the SEA Games.
“For sure. I think they will be more complete especially towards the end of the year,” said Pringle.
