SMART Gilas Pilipinas Nat'l Team Program

alright! im sure its gonna be a thrilling game later this afternoon now that the team is complete
Whoa! Lassiter is in after being told before the game that they are again ineligible to play. 20-11 after the 1st
How come they are ineligible again?what's happening with FIBA? No wonder Qatar got pissed. LOL!
^ nice!
Great, great win. Really gotta give Douthit props for keeping on despite the ankle.
That was a pretty damn bad fall.
Doughtit got sprained and my reaction to seeing him wearing low cut kobe shoes were
 hpe he can play tom against Japan. This game shows the true value of Lassiter and Lutz who displayed excellent D on Wright and Daghles.
great game. i was at the edge of my seat. and that last dunk by kelly was a bug statement! that 3rd qtr with marcus, kelly, marcio, chris lutz and jv wat a good combination just want to know, does Jordan have the right to protest the game because of lutz and lassiter?
most FIBA players are now wearing kobe vi, probably the game is faster there for quicker cuts...(as the ad goes)
we got it going when we concentrated on our defense since we can't break down their defense in the first half,great adjustment for coaches toroman and asst chot reyes..
don't forget,jimmy alapag also got us going with his penetration and ball movement, JV was the last to be sended as PG,it did prove that we have a great team once we get it going..
Lassiter was amazing, Jimmy provided spark, Douthit was his usual self but dont forget Asi!!! guy is 38 y/o and still provided solid minutes.

great recovery again from an 8 pt deficit,looks like the guards are deciding the games lately,when they start with barroca they did start strong but went haywire and japan got back into game,when we fielded in jimmy and casio, it changes the game...intangible game from chris tiu who's playing like a little rodman in getting tacky defense to get better position during plays both on offense(screens) and defense (boxing out) made it for our team pilipinas
i do hope other players also could get their playing time, japan almost went all players just get the right groove in the game
