Jordan club foils Gilas 5



SMART Gilas-Pilipinas fell for the second straight time in the 24th Dubai International Basketball Tournament on Monday, taking a 65-75 loss at the hands of Sporting Amarex of Jordan at Al Ahli Club gym in Dubai.

Alpha Bangura, who played two conferences as an import for Air21 in the PBA, and Darrin Dorsey, led the Jordanians, whom coach Chot Reyes said were too tough for the “kids” he brought to the tough tournament.

The Philippines thus ended elimination round with a 1-2 card, its only win scored against Al Mouttahed, 79-77, last Saturday.

The Filipinos will play Sagasse of Lebanon in the crossover quarterfinals.

“Tried hard, but Dorsey and Bangura just too good, too experienced for our kids. But we fought till d end,” Reyes posted his Twitter account.

Meanwhile, the PBA Commissioner’s Office will propose to the board a resolution that would have at least one player from each of the 10 PBA teams to be included in the Gilas-Pilipinas team that will play in the Fiba-Asia Qualifying tournament in August.

It is not known, however, how the new proposal would sit with Reyes. Musong R. Castillo

    Commissioner Salud is really not a good Manager. The owners have spoken that they are more than willing to extend support to the National team and yet he is only coming up with this half baked proposal? If he is only requesting one player from each team then he is cooking up the recipe for failure. Look Petron has two good materials in the person of Santos and Fajardo, ROS has also two good players in Chan and Norwood and Talk and Text has around 6 players in the person of Alapag, Castro, Williams, Dillinger, De Ocampo and Fonacier. These are actually the top 10 players of the PBA needed by Coach Chot Reyes. And just include Douthit and Greg Slaughter. Viola, you have the team that can compete in the FIBA Asia. Meaning, Coach Reyes needs only three teams to contribute for the composition of the Smart Gilas team, no more no less. That’s why the 1 player per team proposal is not in anyway practical and realistic. It’s a useless proposal! And I don’t think MVP is biting!
