    The truth is, I think Jordan is a much easier team to beat than SoKor. And since Jordan beat us today, logically our chances of winning against Sokor are a bit slim. But who knows, stranger and much less logical things have happened in this tournament ..... like Gilas actually barging into the semi-finals. Whowouldathunk right?

    Gilas for the bronze!!!

    It is our time to give them nightmares and a heartbreaking defeat for them.

    Koreans don't have tall, strong and athletic backcourts, they also don't have the body to contain Douhit, but they do have fast ball movement and sharp shooting 3's. While the Phil. has the tournament score leader as their center,
    Their backcourts can create problem for the Koreans like what Jordanians did to RP. Neither of the team enjoy home court advantage....I would say, tmrw's game is going to be 50:50, whoever is in better condition and luck will win the game. I will not predict nor bet on this one and since there is no clear evidence for me to follow, I'd go with my heart. Go Philippines!!!!!!!!!

    Whichever team overcomes their nerves better will win...I thought all four semifinalists looked nervous today and it showed in their play. Both teams are capable of playing a lot better.

    Default C'mon Philippines

    Firslty, though the Philippines did not reach their goal of winning the 2011 FIBA Asia Championships to book an automatic place in the 2012 London Olympics, I believe that the management, players and coaching staff should still have their heads held up high to reach this far as they have put Philippines back into the asian basketball map as a powerhouse.

    Secondly, the coaching staff and management did a great job in selecting a great pick for their choice for their naturalized player, Marcus Douthit. To have a 6'11 240lbs true big man in the post was a huge difference for the team both offensively and defensively.

    In conclusion, if the Philippines does not get the bronze to qualify for the pre-Olympic tournament, I believe that they should still keep coach Toroman for the goal of reaching the 2014 World Championships, which I believe Philippines would qualify. They have the coach, the player, the support and most importantly, the belief that Philippines can once again join the international basketball's elite countries.

    This is a battle of teams who came close but not enough. Also a battle of teams who had their worst shooting from the 3's yesterday.

    I can't recall when did the Philippines last beat a South Korean team in a major tournament...

    My heart says Philippines but my brain says S. Korea

    I'm all for keeping Toroman, however something tells me he would like to move on or at least take a break. Assuming this is the case, who is capable and likely to continue the Gilas program. the current assistants are Chot Reyes, Ryan Gregorio , Charles Tiu, while Norman Black is assigned to the SEA games team. Interesting ? and Olsen Racela coaches the youth team

    of course, i want my country to win in this game. it will be tough but doable. the team must do the ff:

    1. limit Korea's perimeter snipings- emulate on how China locked down on the Koreans shooters especially T.J. Moon. "asawahin" dapat nila yung mga shooters ng Korea.

    2. perimeter shots must fall- Gilas must not again have that 3/23 shooting from the 3-point area in this game. Lassiter, Alapag and Lutz must connect their outside shots for Marcus to have an easy job scoring inside.

    3. hustle and be aggressive- control those rebounds and box out Korea's big 3in the middle: Ha, Kim and Oh. fight for those every looseballs.

    4. good support from Kelly, Ranidel and Asi- holding Marcus will surely be the Korean's main defensive strategy. these 3 PBA players must help Douthit in scoring, rebounding and defending the interior lane.

    5. good start and strong finish- this is the last game for this Gilas generation. every player must play like there's no more tomorrow. players must play the "Gilas game" for the whole 40 minutes.

    GO GILAS! WE CAN DO THIS! BAG THE BRONZE FOR US AND MAKE THE FILIPINOS EVEN PROUDER!

    how do we stop Ha Seung Jin, in the Jones Cup he appeared to be unstoppable from the post and those hustle plays for Oh Se Keun.
    you know why I am happy
