Sinag Pilipinas: A testament to Philippine basketball’s bright future

In relation to my previous post ‘Reality Check 102’, I mentioned that slowly but surely, the Philippines is knocking at the door of Asia’s basketball supremacy once again. Furthermore, I showed a table showing the performances of the different age brackets of the Philippine teams which clearly shows its continuing rise in ranking in Asia.

It can be recalled that middle of this month, the Philippine team a.k.a as Sinag Pilipinas bagged the gold medal of this year’s Southeast Asian Games (SEA Games).

Sinag Pilipinas was primarily composed of collegiate stars blended with talented Fil-foreigners and steered by a multi-titled American coach. We all know that the competition in the Southeast Asian level is not as tough as the continental level. However, the performance of Sinag Pilipinas was a proof that even with their youth and the limited time of practice, the team managed to capture the crown with relative at ease. The closest winning margin was more than 20 that simply suggests Filipinos’ dominance in this region.
