Uichico sees gold in SEAG

Veteran coach Jong Uichico believes that the national team to the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games has what it takes to win the gold medal but makes it clear it is not going to be easy.

“For sure lahat ng mga makakalaban natin todo yan pagdating sa SEA Games,” Uichico said yesterday. “Of course, we have a good chance. But it’s going to be a tough tournament.”

Gilas Pilipinas coach Chot Reyes named the 12-man roster to the biennial meet for August 19-30 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Uichico is likely to call the shots.

This is because the SEA Games runs in conflict with the schedule of the FIBA Asia Cup in Lebanon where the national team, which Reyes coaches, is also set to compete in.

The 12 players for the SEA Games are PBA players Troy Rosario, Almond Vosotros, Baser Amer, Mike Tolomia, Kevin Ferrer, Von Pessumal and Carl Bryan Cruz, while joining them are amateur standouts Bobby Ray Parks Jr., Kiefer Ravena, Kobe Paras, Raymar Jose and Filipino-German Chris Standhardinger.
