Our very own basketball team’s performance is showing why we love this sport. With the tag ‘gilas’ the team has kept every Pinoy proud. Gallant and elegant as they are termed, our proud ballers are working at their best with all the support from their fellowmen not to mention the home court advantage.
With the recent standing 4 (wins) – 1 (loss) currently tied with Chinese Taipei and a point low from Iran, Smart Gilas does have a good chance to get a Championship crown. I believe the warm-up games held before the opening of the tourney did help in beefing up our players. Tune-up games are deemed important in building the team, enhancing skills and preparing for the big mission. The Legend – Robert Jaworski’s “never say die” words of advice may have boost their morale. The senator’s impromptu arrival at the team’s practice instilled trust among its players.
If Smart Gilas Pilipinas will make it to the top three, they will have a chance to qualify for the 2014 FIBA World Cup which will be held in Spain.
Our team will be up on a single elimination ball game (Quarterfinals) with Kazakhstan on the 9th of August 2013 at 8:00 in the evening Mall of Asia in Pasay. Sure do hope that not only celebrities will watch our local ballers but also the rest of the country. Keep it up Smart Gilas! No matter what happens you are our basketball champs!
