MANILA, Philippines - Gilas Pilipinas may be deep in the trenches they prepare for their first FIBA World Cup in 36 years, but they still remember to smile. The Philippine National Men's Basketball team's journey has been chronicled in a new "Road to Spain" music video set to the tune of Quest's "Sige Lang."
Gilas, which will compete in its third and final game of the Antibes International Basketball Tournament in France against Ukraine later tonight, is bannered by Andray Blatche, Jayson Castro, Marc Pingris, Jimmy Alapag, Japeth Aguilar, Junemar Fajardo, Jeff Chan, Paul Lee and the rest of the gang playing for flag and country.
The FIBA World Cup in Spain will take place from August 30-September 14.
Team Philippines earned the World Cup berth by placing second in the FIBA Asia Championship last year. The Philippines is bracketed in Group B alongside Senegal, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Greece and Croatia. - Rappler.com
