    Chris Tiu: Smart Gilas Team Captain




    The Smart Gilas Team is a developmental Philippine national basketball team sponsored by Smart Communications and the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP). The team is bannered by collegiate and amateur standouts whose ultimate goal is to reach the 2012 London Olympics. The team, formed in early 2009 to instill a long term program for the Philippines men's national basketball team, is coached by former Iran national basketball team coach Rajko Toroman. The team's captain ball is Chris Tiu. He is the owner/manager of the Discovery Suits in Boracay, he is also formerly the team captain of the Ateneo Blue Eagles where he won his first ever collegiate champioship, he is also a talent of the famous GMA Kapuso. With his credentials we can say that he is an achiever and that he can share a lot of great piece of experiences with his teamates who are characters in themselves. Hopefully with all of them working on the same goal of bringing the Philippines back into the basketball world where she is being looked up to by other Asian Countries as a great Nation with great athletes who are WELL-ROUNDED individuals. Kudoz to the team and hopefully with Chris as their anchor and as their prayer leader they'd go the distance.
