Less than 10 days from now, the Philippines will once again be on the biggest stage of International Basketball where the best of the best National Teams converge, the FIBA World Cup. All the hard-work and sacrifices that our Philippine National Men's Basketball Team put in in the previous years, the foundation that our team officials laid down, will finally be tested and for 12-15 days, our country, The Pearl of The Orient will be put in the limelight where the greatest teams carved their respective niches. Hopefully, we can do the same.
As a Filipino and an avid basketball fan, I'm looking forward to the matches of our teams and on how they will compete against the upper echelon teams. I bet that you also feel the same, so, this is the Smart Gilas Pilipinas FIBA World Cup 2014 schedule of games with the corresponding Philippine Broadcast Schedule on Local Channels. You better take note of these dates below as our beloved Gilas Squad will be on deck to show to the whole world the meaning of #Puso and how it propelled Philippine Basketball to where it is now.
