Another change of plan: SBP will send Guiao-coached Rain or Shine core to Asian Games

By: Inquirer.net August 05,2018 - 07:21 PM

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas on Sunday reaffirmed its initial decision to send the core of Rain or Shine mixed with members of Gilas cadets and other PBA stars as the country’s representative in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta this month.

In a press conference on Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum, the SBP also announced that NLEX head coach Yeng Guiao, who once led the Elasto Painters to a couple of PBA titles, will be calling the shots.

Plans of a Philippine team joining the Asian Games were finalized on July 26 with the SBP and the PBA agreeing that the Elasto Painters, along with some members of the Gilas Cadets, will be playing in Indonesia.

However, those plans were scrapped before the day ended with SBP claiming that they need to regroup after the incident Gilas Pilipinas got involved in with Australia in the Fiba Worla Cup Asian Qualifer.
