Philippine national men’s basketball team Gilas now has its final 12 for the 2013 FIBA Asia Championships in Manila.
After a thorough selection process, coach Chot Reyes picked the following cagers for the Gilas crew:
Talk ‘N TextMarcus Douthit
Ranidel De Ocampo
Rain or Shine
San Mig Coffee
June Mar Fajardo
Rain or Shine big man Beau Belga was the last to be cut from the team, with Reyes commending the bruiser via his Twitter account @coachot:
Beau Belga: the ultimate professional. Tough to tell him. But in the end he understood whats best for the team. Dakila ka @bigboybelga30

The national team is currently in New Zealand as part of a 10-day training tour that Reyes hopes will allow the team to simulate the grueling schedule of the FIBA Asia Championship.
