Smart Gilas can win games in William Jones Cup 2011. That's my belief. But, I didn't expect that they will be able to beat Iran by such a huge cushion. Imagine, they won via 73-59 against a powerhouse team like Iran. That's just very impressive considering that Kelly Williams, Jimmy Alapag, and Ranidel De Ocampo were still unavailable for them.
Our players just showed their vast improvement against the defending champions of the Jones Cup, Iran. They played as if Hadaddi was just 6'7 in height.
Talent wise and height wise we can now compete internationally. That's just a breakthrough for Philippine Basketball.
I was so hyped up and so excited after their win and so I tried to look for some highlights of the game in YouTube. Luckily I found one. Thank you YouTube.
