Smart Gilas Team Statistics
2-Point Field Goal: 89/147 (60.5%)
3-Point Field Goal: 11/43 (25.6%)
Free Throw: 54/78 (69%)
Turnovers Per Game: 17

In Summary:
– 6 players averaging 9 or more points per game, this means ball rotation is good
– So far no player has fouled out of the game in the 1st round, this is crucial since we only have 10 players
– 2-point field goal percentage is 60.5%, but this is due to easy points earned against UAE and Bahrain
– Mac Baracael playing well in the 3 position as well as JV Casio in the 2 position, with the loss of Chris Lutz and Marcio Lassiter the others are playing out of their usual position. (Sometimes Toroman uses Alapag, Barroca and Tiu at the same time which is really a small line-up)
– Asi Taulava playing well despite his age and a good back up for Marcus Douthit
– Only Mac Baracael is averaging more than 25 minutes per game, Coach Rajko Toromans rotation of 10 players is good and will be very important since games are played almost everyday

Needs to Improve
– Three-point field goal percentage is only 25.6%, we cannot win against much taller players if we do not shoot well from the three-point line
– Kelly Williams and Ranidel de Ocampo must step up in their rebounding.
– Free Throw percentage is only 69%, in close games, free Throw shooting is going to be crucial.
– Smart Gilas is averaging 17 turnovers per game which is very high against just one tough opponent in 3 games
