Gilas to put finishing touches to Fiba Asia build-up with secluded Cebu camp

/ 11:46 PM September 11, 2015

Could a change in scenery be what Gilas Pilipinas needs as finishes touches to its preparations for China?

Coach Tab Baldwin thinks so.

That’s why a week before the team leaves for Changsha for the 2015 Fiba Asia Championship, he will be bringing the national team to Cebu.

Baldwin didn’t really enumerate the things the team will do once they get there to the Queen City of the South, but he said they will “be working on everything, refine everything.”

Baldwin said is looking to employ changes on the system especially on the offensive end with less than a month to go before the Olympic Qualifiers.

Recent trips to Estonia for the 2015 Toyota Four Nations Cup and to Taiwan for the 2015 Jones Cup saw Gilas play with a hybrid of Chot Reyes’ dribble-dive offense and Baldwin’s own swing offense.

“Probably the only thing different or new is we might put in some new offensive stuff,” he said.

But if there’s something Baldwin is really looking forward to in Cebu is the absence of the crippling Manila traffic.

“There will be no traffic there. We’ll get to the stadium on time and we’ll have plenty of time to train,” he said.
