IN PHOTOS: Gilas visits Malacañang
MANILA, Philippines - Members of the Smart-Gilas Pilipinas team paid Malacañang a visit on Thursday, August 30, to heed President Benigno Aquino III's courtesy call after a succesful campaign at the William Jones Cup.
The boys of Gilas came home winners, bagging the country's first gold from the tournament since 1998. They defeated the US team, 76-75, in a tense finals game.
Minutes after their win, Filipinos turned to Twitter to celebrate Gilas' victory.
Aquino received a Smart Gilas Pilipinas basketball jersey from the team during the visit. His jersey number? #1 of course.
