Gilas On Quarter Finals

The Team Smart Gilas Pilipinas made it to the 26th FIBA-Asia Championship quarter finals after beating Japan lastly.

Gilas finished 2nd place on the Group F after having a 3-1 record. This is the 3rd of the 4th knock out matches of the Gilas in Wuhan Gymnasium later against Chinese Taipei at 6pm.

In the 51 year-old-meet of qualifying matches against Chinese Taipei, they beat them twice last 1960 and 1963 championship games. 

The Nationals also beat them twice last Jones Cup where they also beat them in battle for third for bronze medal 82-72.

"Chinese Taipei is a very dangerous team". Coach Rajko Toroman said. "If their players started to shoot the ball well, we'll be in trouble."

Chinese Taipei hotshot Lin Chic-Chieh will be guarded by Fil-Am Marcio Lassiter who also made a good defense on Japan's shooter Takuya Kawamura in a 3 of 11 shooting that leads to victory 83-76.

If the Gilas beat the Chinese Taipei, they will surely have the game against the defending Champion Iran who were also coached by Toroman last 2007 in FIBA-Asia and 2008 on Beijing Olympics.
