    Ano meron sa korea, why is it ganito lagi and scenario in the end. missed freethrows by ph 3pts by korea main gunner. final score by 2 or 3 korea. How many times this happen to ph! very frustrating but not blaming ph.

    yup. missed it again. game of a life time. what can we say. Hey guys naisip niyo ba na kung hindi dahil kay Manny Pangilinan, wala naman tayong smart gilas?? Politics kasi! Im disappointed not to the players and coaching staff. Kaya naman natin eh. Will power naman pinoy! Give support to our athlethes! Im still optimistic we can reach the olympics someday! Kaya natin!

    Korea just went ahead sa dying seconds pa ng game! Toroman is right.. We are not mentally prepared for this games.. Give more exposure to the players. Continue the program please! Malaki ang improvement natin overall!

    For all the skeptics and pessimists. Lets just support the program! Its not easy. If you don’t have anything good to say, shove it up your ass and shut up! Your not doing any better anyways!

    Go gilas! You need that JV, so you can be a better baller! Heads up! We are back as asias top teams again!

    Animo La Salle!!!!!!

    Oh one more thing.. Sorry Coach Toroman, i didn’t understand why you let Chris tiu stay for so long on the court when you could have used baracael earlier in the game.. sigh…

      fajardo is a former UC collegiate player and slaughter is a former UV green lancer which dominate Cebu basketball. They just need a little honing up for the big time…
