FIBA : Former PBA import Ricardo Ratliffe leads Korea's charge in Asia Cup qualifiers

It will be a homecoming of sorts for Ratliffe as the qualifiers will be held in Clark, Pampanga in the Philippines, where the 31-year-old played as an import for the Purefoods franchise in 2016 and 2017. Guna, who was naturalized by South Korea in 2018, makes his return to the national team after sitting out their first two qualifying games in February 2020 due to injury. He had previously played for South Korea in the 2018 Asian Games and the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

South Korea will bring a 12-man roster to the Philippines. Joining Guna in the team are: Heo Hoon, Kim Nakhyun, Byun Junhyung, An Younghun, Lee Kwanhee, Kim Sirae, Yeo Junseok, Jeon Junbeom, Kim Jongkyu, Lee Seounghyun, and Kang Sangjae. Junseok, a standout for Korea's youth program, is making his debut for the senior team.
