The Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center will host two FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers groups as part of the February bubble window, according to a report by Philippine News Agency..

Gilas Pilipinas Men, the host squad, will be playing thrice in Group A play.

Gilas Men will take on South Korea in a rescheduling of their postponed November window game on Feb. 18.


Gilas Men will then face Indonesia on Feb. 20 before battling South Korea anew on Feb. 22.

South Korea was spared of any sanction from FIBA for begging off from competing in the November window in Manama, Bahrain, but the team will have to play four matches in five nights.

Sandwiched in between the two games against Gilas Men are South Korea's games against Indonesia on Feb. 19 and Thailand on Feb. 20 with only Feb. 21 as its day-off.

Indonesia and Thailand will face off on Feb. 22 as well.

Meanwhile, Guam and Hong Kong will be the busiest teams in Angeles as they will play five matches each within the entire bubble period.

In what would essentially be only the second window in Group C play, both the aforementioned teams will first face off on Feb. 17 in a rescheduling of their postponed first window match-up.

Australia and New Zealand will then swing into action the following day, battling Guam and Hong Kong, respectively.

Hong Kong and Guam will face off again on Feb. 19, while Australia and New Zealand will duke it out on the same day.

The official third window games for Group C would take place after the teams' day-off on Feb. 20.

New Zealand will battle Guam and Australia will take on Hong Kong on Feb. 21, while the rematches of the Feb. 18 pairings will happen on Feb. 22.

The tip-off times for all the games will be announced at a later date.
