And now, it seems the height is the most legitimate reason why we are struggling to be on top of this region. The presence of three or four seven-footers in other countries line up intimidated us a lot. It is also the excuse we got in Tehran, Iran, and it is probably the reason why Chot is considering slight changes in RP line - up with tall players who can run and the first thing in his mind are Williams, Norwood and Anthony Washington (206-C, college: Portland St.)

ETTING TOUGHER AND TALLER

Washington

The first impression for our beloved national team in FIBA Qualifying in JAPAN is they can beat anybody here in Asia except maybe the powerhouse CHINA. With the line up presented are compose of PBA All Stars and more than half of it were born outside the Philippines or Fil - foreigner .Meaning they learned their basketball mainly in USA.

With the line up presented are compose of PBA All Stars and more than half of it were born outside the Philippines or Fil - foreigner .Meaning they learned their basketball mainly in USA. And does it stopped there?


The forgettable finished of Centennial team in 1998 showed what we really got but excuses prevented them from the watchful eyes of disappointed basketball fanatics. Unfamiliarity of amateur basketball rules and a very short time in getting to know each other are the biggest reason why we were not on the top three.


And now, it seems the height is the most legitimate reason why we are struggling to be on top of this region. The presence of three or four seven-footers in other countries line up intimidated us a lot. It is also the excuse we got in Tehran, Iran, and it is probably the reason why Chot is considering slight changes in RP line - up with tall players who can run and the first thing in his mind are Williams, Norwood and Anthony Washington (206-C, college: Portland St.)


As the Chinese paraded a seven-footers decades ago, putting the ball on the rim is hardest thing for them to do. It is not the situation anymore as they have a seven foot- five giant with very soft touch of the ball plus a couple of walking and running walls.


To make things worst, we are now bracketed with Iran, Jordan and China. The group of WALLS which is considered by Coach Reyes as “ Group of Death”. Gone are the days being anxious to be bracketed against the Koreans and Chinese. The Middle East countries have proven to be part of the elite group.


All the teams are team to beat. They are tougher and bigger, and the only assurance is that we have a bigger heart. For many of us here in the Phils, we are better and we can give them a tough fight and like Ed said , lets give them hell.

Actually, I have issues with asia-basket's articles. They tend to show self-contradictory information. For example, Asi Taulava is sometimes listed as having graduated from Bakersfield College, and sometimes as an alumnus of BYU-Hawaii.

The Anthony Washington playing in the PBA now graduated from Eckerd College.

Billy John Mamaril - went to Bakersfield College
Asi Taulava - BYU - Hawaii
J-Wash - Stand out from Eckerd College

Jwash did not attend Portland State. He spend 3 years playing for Eckerd College (a division II college in Florida).

Asi, on the other hand, spent his first two college seasons at California State - Bakersfield teaming up with former NBA player Kebu Stewart to win back to back NCAA division II titles. Afterwards, he transferred to BYU Hawaii where he played one season (95-96)

Billy Mamaril indeed went to Bakersfield College.

DaveMap, you know your fil-ams well.
