Journey to Middle-earth: Gilas targets July 9 departure for tuneup games in New Zealand

Post by Admin 18 on Fri Jun 28, 2013 8:39 am




The Philippine national men’s basketball team is taking a journey to the home of Middle-earth to prepare for the FIBA Asia Championship.

SMART-Gilas Pilipinas team manager Butch Antonio said that the squad is working to finalize details of its trip to New Zealand to continue its buildup for the top regional cage competition.

“Inaayos pa namin, pero ang target namin is July 9,” Antonio said in an exclusive interview.

The Philippine team is lining up dates with Kiwi club teams, and is hoping for an opportunity to play against the Tall Blacks national team.

The New Zealand trip will mark the national squad’s second trip abroad, after its 16-day sojourn to Lithuania earlier this month.

On its return, Gilas is scheduled to play in a pair of games to serve as its final tuneup before the Asian championship, against a selection of PBA stars on July 23 and versus the Kazakhstan national team on July 26.

The FIBA Asia Championship is scheduled on August 1-11 with games to be played at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City and at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in Vito Cruz, Manila.
