    Thanks!

    Have teams been announced yet? Is the Women's tournament taking place at the same time?

    This is exciting!
    A few questions if you have answers. Will the national teams be representing all those countries? I can't imagine Gilas suiting their players up so soon. Japan, Korea and Iran?

    Will USA be represented by Sacramento State instead of that sorry lot of scrubs who have come for the USA the last few years? Man, those teams were awful to watch.

    Gilas Pilipinas seniors are out of the question, but it seems that they are sending a motley crew composed of foreign players to fill ceiling alongside prospects.

    For Korea, it is their Team A with 13-14 players. Japan will be sending a Team B. I don't know about Iran.

    BTW, this year ROC-A will be a U25 NT while ROC-B is a Universiade Team being developed for next year's Universiade basketball in Taipei.

    Sounds like a pretty gross year. If Korea A comes, they'll mop the floor!

    I don't know about that. Korea Team A has an average age of 24.7 years old with Heo Il-Young being 31 to lead them:

    Kim Sun-Hyung (Seoul SK Knights)
    Byeon Gi-Hoon (Seoul SK Knights)
    Hur Hoon (Yonsei University)
    Lee Jae-Do (Busan KT)
    Hur Hweeung (Wonju Dongbu Promy)
    Lee Seung-Hyun (Goyang Orions)
    Choi Jin-Soo (Goyang Orions)
    Heo iL-Young (Goyang Orions)
    Choi Joon-Young (Yonsei University)
    Kang Sang-Jae (Korea University)
    Kim Jong-Kyu (Changwon LG Sakers)
    Kim Junil (Samsung)
    Lee Jong-Hyun (Korea University)

    But Kim Jong-Kyu and Lee Jong-Hyun have been active since 2012.

    Fair enough, I guess they are young as well.

    Some years the Jones cup is amazing with full squads and some years it is lacking a bit, this could be one of those years.

    If Philippines bring Ravena, along with Brickman and those two imports they could actually do some damage. Reminds of the year that Ratliffe played with the Korean club and they did really well.

    Looks like a more organized version of the USA team that goes to Taiwan for the Jones cup. I've heard of the name before but never paid much attention.

    Are they confirmed for Jones Cup? First I've heard anything about that squad

    No Philippines? That is interesting, I wonder what happened there. Perhaps too many import caliber players?

    JC organizers tried the last minute in inviting Canada 3D, but the official schedule is up for ROC-A and I don't see Canada among the fixtures.:

    Couldn't find information about Mighty Sports' exclusion. Does anyone have a link to the tournament's official website?

    I was kinda looking forward to seeing Mighty Sports play.

    Did the Permanent Court of Arbitration decision regarding Spratlys affect the Philippines' status in the Jones Cup somehow?

    Silly Taiwan, denying the Philippines a slot in the WJC after the mainland lost the Spratlys case. They did that once before after a Philippine Coast Guard member shot a Taiwanese fisherman, plus it kinda gave the motivation for Taiwan NT to beat Gilas on Philippine soil in 2013.
    At last, the New Jedi Order has returned!
    They shall liberate Philippine basketball
    from the clutches of the Evil Empire
    and carry on the dream of reaching the world.
