PBA moves 3rd conference for FIBA Asia Championship

The Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) Board has approved to move the PBA Governors Cup to pave way for the Training of our Philippine National Basketball Team, Gilas Pilipinas. The PBA 3rd conference will now be held from August to October 2013 instead of May to July 2013. Two full months of preparation for Gilas Pilipinas plus Monday training after announcement of line-up.

The FIBA Asia Championship will be held from August 1 to 11, 2013 and will be hosted here in the Philippines. Gilas Pilipinas Coach Chot Reyes will announce the FIBA Asia Championship roster on Thursday.

Let us pray and give our all-out support to Gilas Pilipinas!
