Para sa Bayan! After Fiba ACQ stint, CJ Perez back to train for Gilas 3×3


Less than 24 hours after helping Gilas Pilipinas notch a big road win in Indonesia, CJ Perez is back in home soil to train with another national team — Gilas Pilipinas 3×3 — at Gold’s Gym Athletics Sheridan in Mandaluyong City.

Perez chimed in 11 points in Gilas’ rout of Indonesia on Sunday, 100-70.

The 26-year-old combo guard is currently training with Joshua Munzon, Alvin Pasaol, and Mo Tautuaa to develop chemistry as the FIBA 3X3 Olympic Qualifying Tournament was just 23 days away.

Gilas 3×3 is also pressed for time as head trainer Stefan Stojacic will only be around until Thursday before flying back to Serbia.

In the two sessions the team has had, Gilas 3×3 figured in numerous tune-ups. One of the teams includes top Serbian players.
