So to add a tentative depth chart to it, this is what the Philippines will be working with.
|C||Marcus Douthit||Greg Slaughter||Isaac Holstein|
|PF||JR Reyes||Jake Pascual||Japeth Aguilar|
|SF||Matt Ganuelas||KG Canaleta|
|SG||Ronjay Buenafe||Ronald Pascual||Kevin Alas|
|PG||Garvo Lanete||RR Garcia||Justin Melton|
I know what you are asking. Who in the hell are Justin Melton and Isaac Holstein?! Well we tried to do some research.
Holstein went to West Virginia State University where he averaged 0.7 points per game and 0.9 rebounds. The might not have outstanding numbers in his one year in the NCAA, but he is 6-foot, 9-inches tall. That’s a lot of dude right there.
As for Melton, he is a 5-foot, 11-inch point guardout of Mount Olive College. He is a sharpshooter with some speed. I’m getting the Chris Banchero feeling here.
