Cruz, Standhardinger honored to do double duty for Gilas

Getting the nod to represent the country in any international tournament is already an honor for any player.

So to be named for two teams in back-to-back tourneys is incomparable feeling for  Carl Bryan Cruz and Christian Standhardinger.

Despite the exhausting task at hand, the two ready for action as Chot Reyes picked them for both the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup and 2017 Southeast Asian Games squads.

“It’s going to be tiring, but opportunities like this is rare. You can’t mind fatigue if it’s for the country,” said Cruz in Filipino.

“I feel very honored that I’ll play for two tournaments for the Philippines. I think that means that the coaches like what they see or they wouldn’t let me participate in both. I’m going to try my best to help win us as a whole to win both tournaments,” Standhardinger added.

They will suit up in the 2017 Fiba Asia Cup in Beirut, Lebanon from August 8 to 20, before flying to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for 2017 Sea Games from August 19 to 30.
