Big men will be the key in our campaign: Racela
There are very few communities in FIBA Asia like the Philippines, which have a deep-rooted basketball culture running right down to the youngest of age-groups. Therefore, when a team comes from the Philippines with a well-prepared plan the expectations from the enthusiastic youngsters are sure to be high.
Time to ring in the home ‘advantage’: Toroman
Smart Gilas coach Rajko Toroman gave a clarion call to basketball fans in Philippines to “fill the PhilSports Arena” as his team attempts to achieve it best ever result in FIBA Asia Champions Cup history. “We are in with a good chance to produce our best ever result. The team is playing well, although we are capable of doing a lot better,” Rajkov said.
Rajko aims for a best representation at home
An impressive stint in the import-laden PBA Commissioner’s Cup where Smart Gilas lost in the semifinals has only increased the weight of expectations on Toroman as h faces his moment of reckoning in the next couple of months with the team playing in a competition – the 26th FIBA Asia Championship in Wuhan in September – for which it has prepared for the last two years. The 22nd FIBA Asia Champions Cup Manila hosts starting May 28 is the final stage of testing for Toroman before he gives the finish touches to his final assault. Toroman took time off from his busy schedule to talk exclusively to this website.
I think we’ve managed to maintain the continuity: Altamirano
Not everything about Philippines’ campaign here in the 21st FIBA Asia Championship has been perfect. The team, against all expectations lost to a buoyant hosts Yemen, but bounced back in style beating a clinical and ever-improving Japan. And eventually beat Iraq to book their quarterfinals, which many thought was the Filipinos’ for the taking before the competition began. “I think the key at this level is to play consistently. There is no point in playing well one day and going down the next,” Philippines coach Eric Altamirano told after the team reached the quarterfinals.
Coach Eric seeks to improve interior defense to counter taller players
Coach Frederick Altamirano of Philippines surely has his hands, and mind, full these days.

On the other hand, is the challenge of having to counter the taller and stronger players.
