still a long journey ahead of them, like Brunei, they've started developing their Basketball going 10 years now but still couldn't. ( most of their exhibition matches are against Filipino Workers there and sometimes losing to this OFW's ). and also Myanmar.
If the Filipinos are short, Cambodians are even more shorter than Filipinos.

Even there is a good program, they need to love the sport itself. like Brunei, they have the money for a good program and training but the people would play Pencak Silat rather than Basketball. Cambodians loves playing Football and Pencak Silat.

The last time I remember the Philippines faced Cambodia in basketball was at the 1999 SEA Games in Brunei. I recall the venue was a small gym that would pass as a practice facility for some of the Filipino professional teams.

Anyway, the Filipinos led by Romel Adducul, Coach Louie Alas and the core of the MBA's Manila Metrostars crushed the hapless Cambodians (the score cannot even be remembered). A lasting photo image of that game was a pair of Philippine players helping out of the court a bloodied and frail looking Cambodian player.

Cambodia will be back again in the Southeast Asian Games basketball competition after long years of absence. Cambodia national team will try to erase the disaster they suffered in their last international basketball game, the 103 points loss to the Philippines.

Cambodia national team head coach Austin Koledaye is planning a trip to the US to seek experienced players with Cambodian blood.

He's landed one blue chip already.

According to coach Koledoye, Cambodian-American Soap Toun, co-captain of the US-NCAA Division II Stonehill Skyhawks, has agreed to play for the Cambodian national team.

Stonehill Skyhaws reached the final four of the US-NCAA 2006 Season.

Toun is a two-time All-State selection and the leading 3-point shooter in Rhode Island basketball history.

Currently in Southeast Asia excluding the Philippines, experts considered Toun as one of the regions top point guard along with former US-NCAA standout Mario Wuysang of Indonesia.

With the inclusion of Toun and possible more Cambodian-American recruits, Cambodian national team can not be denied this time.

The Cambodian national team lost its most recent international competition 137-34 to the Philippines, and until two months ago held its six weekly practices on the outdoor courts alongside Olympic Stadium-weather permitting.

The 103 points lost of Cambodia to the Asian powerhouse Philippines is the most lopsided lost in the Southeast Asian basketball history.

"The last time we went to the SEA Games it was a disaster, that's not going to repeat itself," said Koledoye. "We know we have no size, but we'll develop speed, fundamentals, accuracy and defense."

I think he is good a little and better than Mario of Indonesia. He can be a 1 man team in Cambodia NT. He'll can score atleast 50 more points if he'll join in Cambodia NT at SEA Games.

here's an article about that CAmbodian star:D


http://www.northeast10.org/sports/mbkb/2005-06/news/20060321stotounfeature

Brockton Enterprise: 'Stonehill Skyhawks' junior 'Soap' Toun has made his mark in Easton'
Mar 21, 2006

By Jessica MacNeil, Enterprise staff writer

EASTON - Basketball players are often given some pretty unique nicknames, but Sopheeng Toun of Stonehill College cleans up in that department.

"My full name is pronounced 'Sopain,' so in middle school, they called me 'Soap' for short," said Toun. "People usually say, 'Is that your real name - like Dial Soap?"

Toun has certainly made a name for himself this season as a junior guard with the 26-6 Skyhawks, who are preparing for their first appearance ever in the NCAA Div. 2 "Elite Eight", beginning Wednesday night at Springfield's MassMutual Center against Tarleton (Texas) State.

Soap is second for Stonehill in 3-point shooting percentage this season at 41.5 (39 for 94) and is third on the team in 3-point field goals made with 39 in 32 games, averaging 1.2 per game.

But there's more behind Toun, who has been a key contributor off the bench for the Skyhawks, than just a nickname. There's also an extraordinary story of courage and determination.

Toun was the first in his family to be born in the United States after they fled their native country of Cambodia to escape the killing fields enforced by the communist organization Khmer Rouge and its leader, Pol Pot.

"I have three sisters and two brothers," said Toun. "My younger brother and I were born here, but the rest of my family is from Cambodia. My family went through hard times in Cambodia and came here in the early '80s."

Toun doesn't know much about what his family went through to get here, but he appreciates his family's history and the life they have been able to provide for him.

"My parents don't say much about what they went through - just to be thankful for the opportunities I've had," said Toun. "Basically everything I know about it, I learned by reading.

"I've never visited, but I wanted to go with my parents (back to Cambodia) maybe after I graduate."

Toun's family started a new life halfway around the world in Providence, R.I., where his parents, Loeuth and Yann, and their four children had to start from scratch in the United States.

"I can't imagine what it was like coming here," said Toun. "By the time I was born, my family was pretty well adjusted. With so many people in the house, someone was always working, but we always took care of each other."

They eventually settled in Cranston, R.I., where Toun grew up and introduced himself to the game of basketball.

"I lived in Providence for three or four years, then we moved Cranston, the next town over," said Toun. "In Cranston, we moved a couple times, but when I was 11 or 12, I found a court close to my neighborhood."

Toun quickly became a student of the game and taught himself to play by watching others on the court.

"At first, I wasn't passionate about it," said Toun, "but I became interested and started practicing by myself and paying attention to kids playing to pick on stuff."

Toun's late start as a basketball player didn't slow him down, however, as he played wherever he could to improve his game.

"In sixth grade, I went out for my middle school team," he recalled, "but I didn't make it, so that motivated me to work harder.

"I got involved with a CYO (Christian Youth Organization) team with a local church, because they're allowed to have one non-parish member, so they let me play."

Despite having relatively no coaching, Toun entered high school with a dream to play basketball. He left Cranston East High School with 1,000 career points and as the leading 3-point shooter in Rhode Island high school basketball history.

"My first year at Cranston East," Toun said, "I tried out for the freshman team, but they sent me up to the varsity and I made it, so I was thrilled."

Apart from his sharp shooting, Toun is known best for his upbeat personality. His easygoing and friendly demeanor earned him yet another nickname - "The Mayor of Stonehill."

"Coach McLaughlin gave me that name," said Toun. "My freshman year, I came in to make friends and everyone here was so friendly that I just say hi to everyone I see."

In his first three seasons, Toun has served as the Skyhawks' spark, on and off the bench, with his shooting, defense and cheering.

"I bring energy because the team needs support from the bench," said Toun. "I know my role is to play defense and hit the open shot. That's what's so good about our team, everyone knows their role; we don't fall back on one guy."

Toun, a Communications major, has approached his role on the team much like he, and his family, have approached everything else, with selfless determination.

"I do what I can," said Toun.

they could naturalize some Filipinos for the right price :D

And to think that the current batch of OFW in Camboadia might have already started improving their stock as second cropping.

In a decade or so they have a legitimate local (with filipino-Cambodian blood) to play for their national team and no need to naturalized.

Permit me to clarify some matters with the naturalization issue. Naturalization basically, is defined as a proceeding whereby a foreigner is granted citizenship.

A good example of a naturalized player is Japan's J. R. Sakuragi formerly known as J. R. Henderson, an afro-american with no Japanese blood nor lineage.

Danny Siegle, is of Filipino and American blood but considered to be a local player and need not be naturalized. He is considered both by the U. S. and Philippine state as their legal citizen (dual citizenship).

So if the Cambodians decided to employ Filipino-Cambodians by virtue of the law on dual citizenships and of Filipino blood/ancestry (courtesy of the OFW's), then these recruits can very well play anytime as local not naturalized....:D

Curiously, although this is out of topic, but permit me to state some facts comparatively talking about the Philippines and Cambodia. Why are there OFW's in Cambodia, like how come and why is that.... ?? here are some answers to some questions, the Cambodian economy by far, is growing faster each year (10% growth) after decades of war, it now employs a lot of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW's), despite its history of turmoil, they're developing faster than the Philippines. Although the Cambodian economy is still considered developing, in a few decades or so, they would probably become the next Singapore inspite of having a controlled economy (communist/socialist).

The parody of things is that, Filipinos do often make a mockery of other people's weaknesses and to this regard which is basketball or whatever sports, they believe too much of themselves and feeling superior. The irony of it all is, an OFW in a country like a poor and underdeveloped Cambodia or Vietnam, the probability that in the near future they would eventually hire Filipino domestic helpers. Ironic, don't you think ?

Going back to basketball, Cambodia within a few years, once the recruitment process proved to be successful of acquiring Cambodian-American players and with the inclusion of Cambodian-American Soap Toun as their cornerstone, the Cambodian national team will surely improve their status in international basketball, with a highly disciplined populace and a robust economy there's no other way but up...:) "tayo kaya ? " (what about us)

For my fellow Filipinos, (althought I am of Filipino-Irish descent, and chose to be Canadian but Filipino by heart, we stayed in Baguio city for 11 years, my mom is from Fuente Osmena, Cebu), and here's something to be proud of.....

The Philippines is now a newly industrialized country in South-East Asia. In 2004, it was ranked as the 24th largest economy by the World Bank according to purchasing power parity. It is one of the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia, posting a GDP growth rate of 7.5% in the second quarter of 2007, and has been compared to the economy of India in its sudden and rapid growth. Once considered the perpetual sick man of Asia is making an unexpected recovery.

In the 1950's once among Asia's most prosperous nations (second only to Japan), the Philippines had languished economically for decades while neighboring countries, big and small, raced ahead. But for the past two years -- almost lost amid the international excitement about the growth of China, India and Vietnam -- the Philippines has been rebounding.

This year, the nation's economy is expected to post its fastest growth rate since the early 1990s, despite the economic shadow cast by the global credit squeeze sparked by problems in the U.S. mortgage market.

The Philippine economy is at full speed ahead, thanks to current Philippine president whether you like her or not.

Hopefully, the SBP would do its share for Philippine basketball......:)

HAHAHAHAAAAA, with 14 million people they don't have one person with 2 meters height?

They (Cambodians) are asians, You (Puerto Ricans) are latinos. It's obvious that latinos are taller beings than asians so it's not possible for Cambodia to find a player 2 meters and above.

For our case (Filipinos), we could've been the kings of basketball in the world if only we had the height. This is true because Filipinos are capable of dominating a sport if the people are crazy about it. Example is Billiards.

As for Puerto Ricans, I don't think basketball is the most popular sport there but baseball rather.

2007 SEA Games was their last tournament.

Best player was former US NCAA Division 2 player Soap Toun (played at Stonehill, a strong D2 team). Soap was a good defender who had great verticle, solid ball handling skills, and was a known to be a great shooter (has all-time 3pt record in Rhode Island HS history).
He averaged a tournament high 29 ppg (from what I calculated) and 13.5 rebounds (got to be near the top), and 4 steals per game (near top I assume). He lived up to the hype, as he was one of only two Cambodians to average double figures scoring but his shooting percentages were way low.
Here is what I calculated:
24/59 (40.7%) 2 pt, 14/62 (22.6%) 3pt, 38/121 overall (31.4). He was an 82% FT shooter (26/32). As a whole, the team shot terribly and heavily relied on Soap to score, rebound, do everything, and he's only 5'11!

Other good player from the 2007 squad was 5'10 G Monh Puthrothna (17.8 PPG). Everyone else averaged less than 5 ppg and under 4 rebounds.
