We struggled mightily against Iran because we couldn’t shoot from the outside,with him on-board, hopefully, that problem will be addressed.”Gilas is also going to bank on its guard play and rely on its speed against a depleted Qatar side, which will miss the services of several of its key cogs due to injuries.“The inclusion of Stanley Pringle will add stability in our guard rotation as we want to take advantage of our quickness against the guards of Qatar.”ADVERTISEMENT Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
