The recent Jones cup stint of Gilas Pilipinas not only proved our great desire to perform well in FIBA Asia 2015 in Changsha, China but also served as a gauge on how the coaches are preparing our team. I was really amazed on the intensity of the players especially right on the first game. Their desire to get back against a loss to the Taiwanese in FIBA 2013 combined with the running swing offense of coach Baldwin worked well against the Taiwanese. However, the win sucked the wind out of our players which resulted in a dismal showing in the next game against Korea.
In his 1st game in the Jones Cup, Terrence Romeo led Gilas Pilipinas with 18 points and 4 steals to a win vs host Chinese-Taipei A. Do you think Terrence Romeo should be in the Final 12 for the FIBA Asia?
