Blatche ready to win in return to Gilas

MANILA, Philippines – Naturalized Filipino center Andray Blatche is back and he's ready to win once again with the national team.

Last seen leading Gilas Pilipinas to victory in the 2017 SEABA Championships last May in Manila, Blatche arrived back in the Philippines very early Sunday morning and participated in a practice with the national team.

Blatche, who played with Gilas in the 2014 FIBA World Cup, the 2015 FIBA Asia Championship and the 2016 Olympic Qualifying Tournament, does not anticipate an adjustment period with the team ahead of their campaign in the FIBA World Cup qualifiers.

"I'm pretty much comfortable with the offense and the defense, the players and the coaching staff," he said in a brief interview ahead of the national team's practice on Sunday morning at the Araneta Coliseum.

"It's a quick adjustment for me," added Blatche, who was visibly in good shape as he headed to the court to put up shots.
