LAST year, the entire nation stood as one as our very own Gilas made history by playing in the Fiba World Cup for the first time in nearly four decades - a momentous occasion for Philippine basketball.
And now, the Philippines’ men’s national team has another goal to conquer - make it to Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. To get there, our boys must first take on the region’s top clubs in the 2015 Fiba Asia Championship.
As Gilas prepares for this new endeavor, Basketball TV once again sets the stage for Filipinos to support its team in the BTV Festival.
Hoop junkies can now cheer on their hardwood heroes in the LIVE viewing of Gilas Pilipinas’ first assignment against Palestine at 11:30 a.m.
Other fun and games are also in store for those in attendance, such as the three point shootout, where the premiere marksmen aim to light it up from downtown.
Another spectacle to look forward to will be the 2-ball competition, in which teamwork will be the undeniable measure of success.
Capping off the list of activities is the skills challenge, as the finest playmakers in the land take center stage as they dazzle their way in the playing court.
Be part of the exciting event and head on out to the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall on Wednesday. Admission is absolutely FREE!
