Gilas Pilipinas looking to bounce back against Taipei A
A day after dropping a sorry one to Canada, Gilas Pilipinas will face the best the hosts will have to offer as the Philippines takes on Chinese-Taipei A in the main game Sunday.

Things do not get easier for Gilas Pilipinas as the national team is in for another tough outing in the 39th William Jones Cup in Taipei.

A day after dropping a sorry one to Canada, Gilas Pilipinas will face the best the hosts will have to offer as the Philippines takes on Chinese-Taipei A in the main game Sunday at the Taipei Peace International Basketball Hall.

Obviously struggling against the Canadians in a 77-90 defeat, Gilas Pilipinas will have to adjust rather quickly in order to avoid going down 0-2 in this grinding nine-day tournament.

The Philippines committed 26 fouls and 22 turnovers against Canada, a repeat performance against Taipei in front of what should be a raucous crowd could spell trouble for the national team.

Gilas will take the court against Taipei A at 7:00 p.m.
