MANILA, Philippines — Fresh from a stint in the FIBA 3x3 World Cup in France, Kiefer Ravena and Kobe Paras joined the national team's practice at Meralco Gym on Tuesday night.

Jeron Teng also showed up for practice, but sat out and left early as he is still recovering from the flu.

Teng, Ravena, and Paras represented the Philippines in the 3x3 World Cup last week, winding up in 11th place out of 22 teams. They arrived Saturday morning and joined the first Gilas Pilipinas practice of the week.

Also present at Meralco Gym was TNT's stand-in import Mike Myers, who is being eyed to reinforce the Gilas team that will compete in the Jones Cup in July.

Other Gilas pool members who attended the practice were: Ray Parks, Von Pessumal, Matthew Wright, Mike Tolomia, Carl Cruz, Ed Daquioag, Fonzo Gotladera, Almond Vosotros, Raymar Jose, and Kevin Ferrer. 

Russell Escoto and Mac Belo, who are both recovering from knee injuries, observed from the sidelines.
