Paras, Ravena included in Gilas roster for Jones Cup

MANILA, Philippines – Fil-German Christian Standhardinger, a 6-foot-7 forward who played college ball with Nebraska and Hawaii, arrives in the country next week to join the Gilas cadet team that competes in the 2017 Jones Cup invitational championship in Taipei from July 15-23.

Mike Myers, a standby import by TNT KaTropa in the PBA Commissioner’s Cup Finals, may also join the team as an import if SBP officials are able to make the necessary arrangements.

Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras
Gilas has submitted a lineup composed of the Gilas cadets plus new recruits Kobe Paras and Raymar Jose, and returning Gilas player Kiefer Ravena.

Coach Chot Reyes fields the Gilas cadets in the Jones Cup obviously in an effort to help them prepare them for the country’s title defense of the men’s basketball crown in the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur in August.

It’s past the original deadline, but the SBP has yet to submit its roster for the SEAG competition.

“It’s because the team has started training just last Tuesday. Coach Chot still wants to take a look at the guys,” Gilas team manager Butch Antonio told The STAR.
