The Gilas Philippine Team fought hard and gave their hearts out as they finished second in the 2013 FIBA Asia Basketball Championships. The whole tournament was held here in the Philippines and there was a huge downpour of support from the Filipinos every time the Gilas team is on the court playing against other Asian countries.
The game against South Korea was breath taking. The Philippine Team gave their 110% and took the win even without their main man, naturalized Filipino, Marcus Douthit. Gilas Pilipinas lost to Iran in the finals but despite the setback, I am still proud of these guys. I don’t need to mention every single player who contributed to the team because each and every one of them showed a huge heart and passion for the sport and for the country.
