The 2013 Dubai International Basketball Championships: Gilas Opens with a Win - Jan 11, 2013

This is a repost of the well-written article by my fellow writer, Sir Jude Roque, fromYahoo! Philippines:

Inspired by the recent announcement of FIBA Asia that this years Asian Championship will be held in Manila, the Smart Gilas Pilipinas national mens team got off to a rousing start here in the 24th Dubai International Basketball Championship by nipping Al Mouttahed Tripoli of Lebanon, 79-77, Friday at the Al-Ahli Club gym, to the delight of about two thousand Filipino fans.

The nationals shook off a slow start to thwart the No. 3 team in the tough Lebanese league that boasts of three American imports - Marc Salyers, Eric Chatfield and Larry Cox. Salyers is a 69 forward who has played all over Europe, while Chatfield is a hotshot from the University of New Mexico. Cox is a 610 behemoth who leads the Lebanese league in blocks with 3.9 per game.

The Lebanese started the game on fire, leading by as many as 15 points, at 18-3, on two triples by Salyers. Mouttahed was ahead, 22-10, after the first period, ut the gritty young Philippine squad unloaded five treys in the second quarter, two of which came from Meralco Bolts ace gunner Ronjay Buenafe, to take the half, 41-40.
Naturalized import Marcus Douthit took control in the third canto as he scattered ten markers to keep Gilas still on top, 59-58, going into the payoff period.

In the fourth quarter, it was a Garvo Lanete and Kevin Alas show as the former NCAA rivals collaborated with a run-and-gun attack to counter the clear size advantage of Mouttahed. Alas, the former Letran standout, fed ex-San Beda star Lanete with a couple of excellent assists. Lanete connected on a triple and two floaters in a three-minute span.

Alas also fed Greg Slaughter with an alley hoop pass that the former completed with a slam, and delivered a crucial three-ball with just under four minutes left. But in the end, it was excellent team defense that sealed the victory for this Philippine squad that was formed in less than two months before the tournament, capped by a Lanete steal in the dying seconds of the game.

Douthit led Gilas with 20 points and 8 boards, while Lanete and Buenafe added 15 and 10 markers respectively. Alas also had a superb game with 9 points, 5 assists and 4 steals.

In the Jones Cup, all of our wins came from behind. Never, never give-up. But I thought the key in the endgame was our ability to make some stops, said head coach Chot Reyes.

Gilas and Mouttahed engaged in a shooting contest, but the Filipinos prevailed with 11 out of 25 triples as opposed to their opponents 8-of-31. The bigger Lebanese, however, won the battle of the boards, 35-29, including 17 offensive rebounds. Gilas had more assists, 15-9.

Gilas faces home team Al-Ahli Club, UAEs top professional team, later today.

Smart Gilas and Mouttahed are joined in Group B by Al-Ahli Club and Jordans Al Riyadi Sporting Aramex Club. In Group A are Sagesse and Al-Riyadi, both from Beirut, Lebanon, and the United Arab Emirates national team. A team from Kazakhstan was supposed to be part of Group A, but backed-out at the last minute.

Two years ago, the first batch of Gilas under Serbian coach Rajko Toroman placed second behind Egypts El Ettehad Club in this tournament. The only remaining member of that batch is Douthit. Slaughter was part of the 2010 Gilas squad that placed third behind Mahram of Iran and Al-Riyadi of Lebanon.

The Philippine team will easily become the most popular squad here as Dubai has over 800,000 Filipino overseas workers. Pinoys make up the biggest crowd in this annual tournament as they look forward to seeing the nationals in action.

The other members of the squad are KG Canaleta of Air 21, JayR Reyes of Meralco, RR Garcia, Ronald Pascual, Jake Pascual, and Matthew Ganuelas of NLEX, and Fil-Am recruits Justin Melton and Isaac Holstein. Coach Chot is assisted by former national coach Jong Uichico.

Charles Rhodes gets MVP of the Week award for Filipino PBA - 6 days ago
Experienced American Charles Rhodes (203-F/C-85) had a very impressive game in the last round for SM Beermen and that's him to receive a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 5. The 31-year old power forward had a double-double of 20 points and eighteen rebounds, while his team outclassed Mahindra (#11, 1-6) with 29-point margin 109-80. SM Beermen is placed at 7th position in Filipino PBA. They would have been even better if they hadn't lost that single game earlier this seas...   [read more]

Tim Cone
PBA Coach being recommended for Knicks staff - 8 days ago
The name of Barangay Ginebra San Miguel Kings coach Tim Cone was being floated to the National Basketball Association's (NBA) New York Knicks president Phil Jackson to be part of the teams' coaching staff. The most accomplished coach in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) with 19 titles under his belt including two grand slams was recommended by American sportswriter and book author Ronald Lazenby to the Knicks due to his deep understanding of running the Triangle (Triple Post) O...   [read more]

Greg Smith
Smith number one in Philippines for round 4 - 12 days ago
American Center Greg Smith (208-C-91) had a great game in the last round for Blackwater, receiving a Asia-basket.com Player of the Week award for round 4. The 25-year old player had a double-double of 40 points and 19 rebounds, while his team beat Globalport (1-4) 118-113. The game rather meaningless between the teams, which do not have any influence on top of the standings. Blackwater is placed at 9th position in Filipino PBA. Too late to salvage the team, which is currently ranked such...   [read more]
