Wuhan, China – The Pilipinas Smart-Gilas won its first 2nd round game in the 26th FIBA Asia Championship for Men held in Wuhan Gymnasium, Wuhan, China. The Gilas defeated 2009 Fiba-Asia 3rd place finisher Jordan, 72-64. It was the first time in the tournament that the Philippine team was able to field a full line-up.

Marcio Lassiter and Chris Lutz who had their eligibility questioned were finally allowed to play minutes after the game has started. The team was trailing by double digits, 5-17 when Lassiter entered the game as a substitute. The team even had deficits as high as 18 points before rallying and trail just by five at the end of the first half, 26-31.

Lassiter, Jimmy Alapag, and Marcus Douthit conspired in the third quarter to make the game even going into the final 10 minutes of the game. The Gilas started the payoff period with a 12-4 run to take a 59-51 lead but Jordan rallied to trail just by a basket at 64-66. The Philippine’s defense held the Jordanian scoreless in the crucial minutes game. Chris Tiu and Kelly Williams made pressure-packed free throws to secure the game for the wards of Serbian coach Rajko Toroman. Coach Toroman intimated that the game is the biggest win so far in his life, bigger than his FIBA Asia championship victory with Iran in 2007 .

Douthit topped the scoring for the Gilas with 19 points while Alapag and Lassiter combined for 25 points. The win upped the record of the Philippines to 2-1 in the second round while Jordan fell to 1-2 in Group F.

Wuhan, China – The absence of wingmen Chris Lutz and Marcio Lassiter were clearly felt when China (2-0) drubbed the Pilipinas Smart-Gilas (1-1), 75-60, in the 26th FIBA Asia Championship. The Chinese used its height advantage to the hilt as they more than doubled the Philippine‘s output in the fist half, 43-21. The Gilas tried to rally in the second half to no avail as China took advantage of the absence of Lutz and Lassiter, as their not cleared by FIBA Asia to play in the tournament.

A fist fight almost ensued between the coaching staffs of the two teams as China coach Donewald apparently called Gilas coach  Rajko Toroman an a$%hole when Toroman was talking to the tournament director during a break.

Marcus Douhit lead the Gilas with 17 markers and 10 rebounds and he was able to somehow negated the numbers of  Yi Jianlian (Washington Wizards) who finished with 20 points and 17 rebounds. Chris Tiu finished with 12 points.

The scores:
China (75) – Yi 20, Wang 16, Sun 15, Zhu 13, Zhang 3, Liu 2, Zhang B 2, Yi L 2, Ding 1, Yu 1, Su 0, Xirelijiang 0.
Smart Gilas (60) – Douthit 17, Tiu 12, Williams 6, Casio 5, Alapag 5, Baracael 4, Aguilar 4, De Ocampo 3, Barroca 2, Taulava 2,.

Quarterscores: 22-13: 43-21; 55-40; 75-60

caloycomment: It was an expected win by the Philippines.  Tonights match-up with Taipei will determine their chances in advancing further in this tournament. A loss will mean that they will face the host China in the quarterfinals.  China will be tough to beat at home.  A win will make them battle Korea which is somehow beatable.

The Smart Gilas Basketball Team lost to the reigning FIBA-Asia champions Iran at the start of Group F competitions of the Asian Games Basketball tournament.  The offense was not able to penetrate the vise-like defense of the Iranians.  The Philippines only managed to score 48 against the 65 of Iran.

Chris Tiu led the scoring with 14 points buoyed by his 4-5 shooting in the 3-point range. Unfortunately he also had 5 of the teams 25 turnovers. Kelly Williams had 8 points and 13 rebounds.

The Smart-Gilas will next face Qatar tonight at Huangpu Gymnasium.

Update: Philippines rip Qatar 90-68, will face Japan next

Other Notable results for the Philippine Asian Games team:

65 kg sanshou of wushu : Mark Eddiva battles China’s Junyon Zhang for a spot in the finals. Eddiva is assured of a bronze

Swimming: Men’s 4 X 100 team is in the finals after finishing with the 6th best time.

Billiards: Iris Ranola beats Haifa’a Alanser of Athletes from Kuwait (9-ball women); Rey Grandea beats Thailand’s Thongchai Punyawee (carom 3 cushions)

caloycomment: Well, I expected them to lose against Iran even without its NBA star. This team was not built to win the Asian Games.  I just hope that they can somehow find the chemistry to be competitive in this tournament.  The talent in the Asian Games is quiet high and it seems that the country has not kept up with its neighbors.  I have read comments that we should not have sent mediocre athletes because we are just wasting money.  I totally disagree. How can we gauge our talent-level if we do not expose our athletes to tough competitions? I think the government though should focus on certain sports that we have infrastructure, and body-type to win. They should not care much about popularity since it will come when the athletes start winning.
