      Taulava and Baroca are not included in the 24 man line up submitted to FIBA. Hence, my final 12;
      Center – Fajardo, Slaughter
      Power Forward – Blatche, Aguilar
      Small Forward – RDO, Norwood, Rosario
      2-guard – Lassiter, Abueva,
      Point Guard – Castro, Lee, Romeo

      Reserves – Park (G), Chan (G),Matt Rosser (F),Tautuua (sub for Blatche in case of injury)

      Pwede namang si Alamzan na lang instead of Taulava. Mas bata si Almazan and mas athletic kumpara kay Asi.
