Fajardo joins Gilas practice

After missing the first practice session, Junemar Fajardo made an appearance as the weekly Gilas training for the FIBA World Cup Qualifiers second window continued Monday night at the Meralco Gym in Pasig.

Also in attendance among the seniors were Japeth Aguilar, Gabe Norwood, Kiefer Ravena, Allein Maliksi, Jio Jalalon, Matt Wright, Carl Cruz, Troy Rosario, and Kevin Alas. RR Pogoy also showed up, but he did not suit up for practice.

Calvin Abueva, Jayson Castro, and Raymond Almazan were absent in practice, but according to team manager Butch Antonio, Abueva excused himself.

“Calvin has to attend to some personal matters," Antonio said.

Also making his first Gilas practice is cadet Abu Tratter, joining fellow youngster CJ Perez.

Only Perez returned to practice among the cadets who were there last week with the majority of the other players playing in the Philippine Collegiate Champions League qualifiers.*PNA
