Toroman oversees Mighty buildup for Jones Cup

05:01 AM July 01, 2019

Serbian coach Rajko Toroman renews his love affair with Philippine basketball on Monday as he takes charge in the buildup of the Jones Cup-bound Mighty Sports, with coach Charles Tiu on another national tour of duty.

The coach of the original Gilas Pilipinas program, Toroman accepted the invitation of his former protégé Tiu to be the team consultant, but will oversee the team’s preparation in the meantime until Tiu returns from helping the national Under-19 team in Greece.


Tiu has worked for Toroman during his Gilas stint from 2009 to 2011.

“Coach Charles knows coach Rajko so well so there’s no problem with it. The team is in good hands with coach Rajko at the helm and Charles knows it, too,” said Mighty Sports owner Alex Wongchuking.


Most of the members of the team are excited to have Toroman as they prepare for one important mission–regain the title Mighty Sports won 2016.
