Good luck, Team Pilipinas.

Kobe Paras is highly recognized by FIBA for his exploits. We should all be proud.

Observations:

Game 1 - Solid game by Team Pilipinas. Paras was hands down our best player against Romania. He made the crucial shots. Ravena also played well.

Game 2 - Team Pilipinas relied too much on one-on-one plays. And defense needed much improvement. Teng seemed lost. I would have hoped if they got a really big guy who can patrol the middle, like a Tautua or Taulava.

Player of the Day: Kobe Paras

The Filipino rising star sure did not look like the youngest player in the tournament today. For his return to the 3x3 world stage, the 19-year-old scored a whopping 12 points in an important 21-15 win against Romania. The second game against France was more difficult (just 3 points) but Kobe still had time to pull off some of the best highlights of the day.

FIBA is really taking notice of Kobe Paras. I hope this translates to more playing time when he goes back to college basketball.

Everyone has their fair share of playing time.

After watching the 3X3 World Cup, I have come to the conclusion (my two cents) that we have a good chance if only we send the best and right mix of players. Now is a good time to send in our best players, especially that traditional basketball powers, like the US, are not sending their best players yet.

We need a team that's athletic and tall with a good balance of offense and defense. On that note, I would bet a team with Kobe Paras, Terrence Romeo, Calvin Abueva, and June Mar Fajardo would be highly competitive.

Our under 18 team is doing great. Off to the quarterfinals. Good balance of big and small men.
