GILAS Pilipinas lured a 100 percent attendance for the second straight week in its Monday practice for the coming 30th Southeast Asian Games.
Present at the Meralco gym were big men June Mar Fajardo, Christian Standhardinger, Greg Slaughter, Japeth Aguilar, Vic Manuel, and Troy Rosario, wingmen Marcio Lassiter, Art Dela Cruz, Matthew Wright, and Roger Pogoy along with guards LA Tenorio, Stanley Pringle, Scottie Thompson, Jayson Castro, and Chris Ross.
This is the fourth straight week the national team held practice under coach Tim Cone.
It helped that all players attended the PBA Development Orientation Program at the nearby Meralco Theater just hours before Gilas practice.
"We have great attendance today. I told the players I came here thinking that two or three guys wouldn't show up because that's kind of what the national team goes through," said Cone after practice.
"But we had all 15 guys today and we wanted to keep them coming. We're proud with all these guys who are showing up."
