    From the introduction of the players, where every Gilas player got cheered, Reyes got the opposite treatment as he was jeered by the packed crowd when his name was called by the stadium announcer.

    Even when he was shown complaining about calls or pleading his case to the referees, the audience were giving the Gilas coach a hard time - all the more as the Philippines trailed early on.

      The boos didn't stop even after Gilas went on a late run behind Jordan Clarkson and Dwight Ramos to open a 37-28 lead at halftime of the Fiba World Cup Asian qualifier.
