    It is still a good news having 6ft 10 OR 6ft11 beside KAi.
    Unfortunately, UP is not known for developing players. So It is hard to imagine that ethan will improve under them.

    Jake Figueroa highlights, people can form their own opinions but I think hes a low ceiling player, talented yes but I don't know if his game translates in Fiba.

    Being 6-2 frontliner speaks for itself..

    I see Jake Figueroa as another Jeron Teng. Perfect for PH basketball but not much else.

    Sayang.We really need a reliable big for this team.Tolentino and Demisana would have been good contributors as well while I think NU's Jaime Vittorio Papa is not yet ready for such competition.Given those 3 mentioned earlier on the team, with a 7'' (213 cm) Tolentino,a 6'10 (209 cm) Chiu and a 6'8(?) (203 cm?) Demisana, we could have been the one of the tallest if not the tallest Asian team in the U-16 competition.Lopez will have to play the wing instead of the post.

    I think this team could pull off small ball really well, no offense to Demisana but he’s not exactly the quickest and as he is right now more a liability, Tolentino is definitely a missed prospect but I think the length and athleticism of the wings can make them effective small ball frontliners. Unless they encounter Australia, New Zealand or China, I don’t see any country except maybe India having an athletic/ tall enough frontline to counter

    Gilas U16 has 2 Fil-African recruits I'm not sure it Francis Lopes is one of them.

    I have not seen Demisana's game up close but I don't think he is Geo Chiu slow. Although we have yet to see his reaction time on defense,my guess based on his highlight vids is that he's quicker than most bigs.

    March is near. And sage recruitment is no progress. He will be ineligible I think.

    Guess we just need to rely on our homegrown players, and discover the New Kai and Edu

    Unnecessary sarcasm. Quite uncalled for.

    In case anyone missed it, the qualified teams for this year's FIBA Asia U16 tournament are as follows:

    Hosts - Lebanon (47)
    Defending Champions - Australia (10)
    Central Asia - Kazakshtan (64)
    East Asia* - China (14), South Korea (18), Japan (25), Chinese Taipei (34)
    Gulf - Saudi Arabia (82), Kuwait (T-69)
    Oceania - New Zealand (28)
    South Asia - India (52)
    SEA - Philippines (30), Thailand (T-69), Indonesia (T-72)
    West Asia - Iran (26), Syria (T-72)

    () - FIBA Junior Men's World Ranking
    * - no qualifiers held, qualified teams selected based on FIBA World Ranking

    If the teams on each pot are based on current world ranking, we will have the following:

    Pot 1

    Australia
    China
    Korea
    Japan

    Pot 2

    Iran
    New Zealand
    Philippines
    Chinese Taipei

    Pot 3

    Lebanon
    India
    Kazakhstan
    Kuwait

    Pot 4

    Thailand
    Indonesia
    Syria
    Saudi Arabia

    FIBA uses a random draw system. I tried using the serpentine system but if FIBA will use the same playoff system as the previous tournament then it can get really wonky in the first round.

    Pot 4

    Thailand
    Indonesia
    Syria
    Saudi Arabia
    Most important is the elimination rounds, the recent Gilas teams have been lucky to avoid Australia, New Zealand, China and Korea in the elimination rounds, Australia so far has straight up dominated the youth teams, there’s been some success but no wins with New Zealand and China is still the regional powerhouse, Korea has our number.

    I hope this does not sound ridiculous, but I have an idea for the future national team.

    Rather than rallying FIBA to relax the hagop rule, the SBP should push for the senate to revise our citizenship laws.

    Currently, only a person with one citizen parent can be a natural-born Philippine citizen. People who were born and raised in the Philippines to two foreign parents are not citizens of the PH.

    The SBP should advocate for jus soli - those who were born in the Philippines who at least have one parent who is a permanent resident shall be a Philippine citizen upon birth. People who carry the bronze ACR card ("native-born alien" card) at the moment should be allowed to elect Philippine citizenship. Any native-born alien who is under 16 and wants to play for the Philippines will be able to.

    There are a good number of Philippine-born Indians (think of Karan Singhdole, but he's a model, not cager but he is tall) who can be our tall men in basketball, but unfortunately, most of them are obky oermanent residents, not citizens.

    Most Indians in the Philippines are Northern Indians (Punjabi, Sindhi) so they are tall and have beefy frames.

    Good for the Philippine National Cricket Team.
