Pilipinas Smart Gilas Advance to Quarterfinals of FIBA Asia 2011

Go Philippines!! wuhooo!!, Pilipinas Smart Gilas has been consistent for the past games as they won all the 3 games in the Group F of the second round of Fiba Asia 2011.

Their first game in the second round was, Jordan with 72-64, Jordan was not an easy team to beat but our national team has defeated them with the new system of Coach Toroman, and the second game was against Japan with 83-76, this was a big boost for our national team because Japan is considered as one of the power house team in asia and their are the top team in their group in the first round of Fiba Asia. And the last team is Syria with 75-52, in this game our national team were almost defeated by Syria but the good thing is during the second half a lot of players stepped up and they manage to get the lead before the 3rd quarter ends.

Now the Smart Gilas rank second behind China in Group F.
