Representing the country has always been Marc Pingris’ favorite calling.

On Instagram, the “Pinoy Sakuragi” reminisced his Gilas days where he was a defensive asset for the Philippines. His picture says it all about his role with the team, and how he enjoyed his experience as well.

“I miss you so so so so much!! #soon #pingris2.0 #pinoysakuragi 🙏,” said Pingris.

The Magnolia big man is currently recovering from an ACL injury he sustained last March. Only time will tell whether Pingris will still be called for Team Pilipinas or not.
