Smart Gilas wraps up training in Cebu

THOUGH they don’t have any tune-up games lined up anymore, Smart Gilas now enters the most intensive part of their training with just a week to go before the 2015 FIBA-Asia Championship.

Gilas Pilipinas is now conducting its final stretch of heavy training in Cebu City where the team is fine-tuning its form in the lead up to the FIBA-Asia tilt next week in Changsa, China.

Right after sweeping and winning the MVP Cup last weekend, the team flew to Cebu the day after to maximize the remaining days before the big tournament and wrap its training up in hopes of getting in the best possible shape and condition by next week before leaving for China.

National team coach Tab Baldwin wants to ensure that this important last part of Gilas training helps them correct all their mistakes and get them to the level that they need to be.

‘’We’re hoping that this last part of our training can get us to where we want to get and that is to reach our peak into the FIBA-Asia,’’ said Baldwin. ‘’This is very important to us. We need to get everything on the same page and be as prepared as we can.’’
