Smart Gilas vs Korea ( Sang Moo) is at 3:00 pm today. Our team might as well end this tourney with a bang - you know win its last two games and grab 5th place. This equals PBA Team Pilipinas placing in the 2005 Fiba-Asia Champions Cup - not bad for a team made up of amateurs. Smart Gilas has defeated Korea in the elimination phase before. I hope the team keeps its focus and win.
Coach's Toroman target was to reach the quarterfinals according to the Inquirer and mission accomplished. Although I believe Toroman wanted his team to reach the finals. Yes, it is better to set our sights higher. Man, if it happened, it will be a reason to celebrate - making it to the finals of a Fiba competition is no joke.
But Smart Gilas showed a lot of promise in this tournament. Yes, coaches of the Iranian and Qatari team has complimented the nationals. This team handled by Toroman is amazing - they have this never say die attitude and intense competitive spirit. They want to win for our country and hopefully the can fulfill their goal - qualifying for the 2012 London Olympics.
