Smart Gilas Pilipinas is Now Ready to Bag PH’s 5th FIBA Asia Title

Philippines will be hosting the 27th FIBA Asia Basketball Championship, which serves as qualifier to the 2014 FIBA World Cup in Spain, beginning Thursday at the Mall of Asia Arena. Gilas Pilipinas has hometown advantage. Can they win the country's 5th FIBA Asia title?

Gilas Pilipinas

For the first time in 40 years, the Philippines will serve as host for the FIBA Asia Basketball Tournament after hosting rights was pulled out from Lebanon citing the Syrian civil war and security concerns in the Middle East in general.

The Philippines is tied with Iran and Lebanon for having the most wins in the FIBA Asia Championship – four. If Gilas Pilipinas wins this year, the country will be on top of the leaderboard not to mention that it will represent the Asian continent in the 2014 FIBA World Cup to be held in Spain.

The 2013 FIBA Asia Tournament is happening on August 1 to 11, 2013 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City. Watch it live on TV5 and Baskeball TV.
