GILAS Pilipinas is now on its final preparations for its colossal Fiba World Cup Asian qualifying game against Australia on Thursday.

Coach Chot Reyes shared a glimpse of the team’s first training in Melbourne on Tuesday as the Philippine crew finally got its full roster buckling down to work.

Gilas left for Melbourne late Monday night and arrived after an eight-hour flight before Tuesday morning.

Naturalized big man Andray Blatche led the session together with leaders Jayson Castro, June Mar Fajardo, Gabe Norwood and Calvin Abueva.

Also part of the trip were Japeth Aguilar, Allein Maliksi, Kevin Alas, RR Pogoy, Matthew Wright, Jio Jalalon, Carl Bryan Cruz, Kiefer Ravena, and “23-for-23” cadet” Abu Tratter.

Gilas Pilipinas takes on the Boomers on Thursday at Margaret Court Arena.
