World Cup no biggie for USA Basketball

Some nations like the Philippines and Australia are taking matters too seriously, sadly even trying to rearrange each other's mug in order to qualify for basketball's World Cup in 2019. As a consequence, the national teams of both countries are now hurting physically and emotionally following an on-court brawl, among the worst in the annals of basketball during a World Cup qualifier at Philippine Arena in Bulacan last month. Suspensions meted out after the melee by the International Basketball Federation (Fiba) are causing bitter beer faces for the Filipinos more than the Aussies. With 10 players and two coaches suspended, Fiba's action effectively decimated the Philippine natio...Keep on reading: World Cup no biggie for USA Basketball.....»»

FIBA WORLD CUP: Guiao ready to name final Gilas lineup on Monday

Fresh from a brave stand in the Asian Games where they finished 5th place, national team head coach Yeng Guiao says his crew will be right back in business to prepare for the upcoming FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. To start the second round, the Philippines (4-2) will take on Iran on September 13 before hosting Qatar four days later. With about two weeks of preparation this time, Guiao says Gilas will be right back to practice on Monday, September 3. He says the final team will be pretty much announced after that first practice. "Monday is the start of practice. We will also determine Monday who are interested in accepting that invitation and then we will form the team right there after," Guiao said Saturday. The Philippines will essentially keep its Asian Games core for the upcoming FIBA window, with the exception of some due to various reasons. Christian Standhardinger, Stanley Pringle, Gabe Norwood, Raymond Almazan, Beau Belga, Poy Erram, Asi Taulava, and Paul Lee are retained from the Asian Games team, though Guiao will have to let go of either Standhardinger and Pringle as both count as naturalized players in FIBA tournaments. Included in the new pool of Gilas are Scottie Thompson, Ian Sangalang, Allein Maliksi, Alex Cabagnot, and Marcio Lassiter. In a report from Indonesia by Reuben Terrado of Spin.ph, Matthew Wright is also invited. Although Wright was suspended by FIBA following the Gilas-Australia brawl back in July, the Phoenix gunner is only barred for one game, making him eligible for the Qatar game. "One week and one big man short of playing for a medal tayo sa Asian Games. Ito kapos din pero we will make the most out of it. We are used to cramming anyway so again, it will really depend on the commitment of the players," coach Yeng said. "Wala na tayong problema sa PBA. Nagpapasalamat tayo sa PBA dahil wala tayong limitations doon sa pagpili ng mga players so I think what happened in the Asian Games is also due to the cooperation now of the PBA and the SBP. Kung pinadala lang kami as yung original lineup at hindi natin nahatak sina Standhardinger, sila Pringle, sila Poy Erram, hindi natin nahatak sila Paul Lee, hindi ganoon ang performance natin. Kaya nagpapasalamat tayo sa PBA dahil pinayagan nila yun. Now, they're opening up the doors even wider for the window. So we're very thankful but again, time is the problem now. Andyan na yung willingness to contribute players pero problema na lang, I hope we can whip up the team into a competitive condition in the next week or so," he added. But first things first though is practice on Monday and the announcement of the lineup immediately after. "After ng practice. Kailangan din kaya maaga, yung documentation at yung eligibility eh," Guiao said. "Kailangan doon may napili ka na, kailangan doon sigurado tayo na okay sa FIBA. Kung hindi, kailangan mapalitan kaagad. Ayun yung isang issue pa rin doon. Yeah, Monday evening. After practice," he added.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SBP withdraws from Asian Games, cancelling ROS reunion

In a sudden turn of events, the Philippines will not send a basketball team to the 2018 Asian Games. In a statement late Thursday night, the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas has decided to withraw from the Asiad in order "to allow our National Team and our organization to regroup." Excatly one week ago, FIBA handed out its sanctions to the Philippines following the brawl against Australia in the World Cup qualifiers. 10 players were suspended. Head coach Chot Reyes was suspended as well. In light of that, the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters, with Yeng Guiao coaching, were supposed to take over the TNT KaTropa as Philippine representatives in the Asian Games slated next month. The PBA Board even had a meeting early Thursday to discuss the country's participation. But in a surprise move, the SBP is withdrawing from the competition just a few hours later.

Picking up the pieces

The quest to begin repairing the damage wrought by the brawl between the Philippines and Australia during their World Cup qualifying match on July 2 began almost immediately after the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas held a press conference Thursday to announce the fines and sanctions slapped by the international basketball federation (Fiba) on both countries. With coach Chot Reyes and naturalized center Andray Blatche out of the roster for a varying number of games and several key players also suspended, Gilas Pilipinas will be hard-pressed to come up with a competitive squad when it faces Qatar at the start of the second round of qualifiers for the 2019 World Cup.

FIBA WC Asian Qualifiers: Guiao set to take over Gilas in second window

'Gilastopainters' head coach Yeng Guiao's duty with the national team will enjoy an extended stay as he is set to mentor the team at the continuation of the second window of the FIBA World Cup Asian Qualifiers. The fiery Guiao, who is currently in Jakarta handling the affairs of the national squad, will now be in charge of handling a Gilas squad still reeling from the suspension of 10 players and head coach Chot Reyes, who was himself slapped with a one-game ban. Guiao, who currently coaches the NLEX Road Warriors in the PBA, previously held the post in 2009, where he guided a Powerade Team Pilipinas squad to 8th place in the FIBA Asia Championships that year. According to SBP president Al Panlilio, Guiao will be handling the squad when they face Iran on Sept. 13 and a close-door home game against Qatar on Sept. 17. “We advised Coach Yeng last night, and he has of course accepted it para sa bansa,” Panlilio told Manila Bulletin's Waylon Galvez. “He’s committed to also coach the next window.” Reyes and the team were meted the punishments following the brawl against Australia last July 2 at the Philippine Arena......»»
