They Said It!
“Offensive at defensive team ang Gilas ngayon, puro defender like Hontiveros, Abueva at Pingris. Offensive player naman Castro, Romeo, Ranidel at Blatche. Tiwala lang mga kapatid, think positive. Tama si Coach Tab, wag hanapin ang wala." - Best Ever
The national team under Tab Baldwin will be facing a Palestinian team that could possibly have former GlobalPort import Omar Krayem in its lineup.
Gilas Pilipinas is no stranger to Hong Kong, having faced the former British colony in the 2013 Fiba-Asia Championship.
