MIBATI og gamayng pagmahay ang coach sa Gilas Pilipinas nga si Chot Reyes bisan pa man sa ilang kulbahinam nga kadaugan batok sa Senegal, 81-79, sa Fiba World Cup niadtong Huwebes sa gabii didto sa Espanya.

Bisan tuod og nalipay siya sa kadaugan nga maoy unang naangkon sa Pilipinas sa World Cup sulod sa upat ka dekada , wa malikayi ni Reyes ang pagmahay tungod sa sikit nga pagkapildi sa tulo ka higayon diin aduna gyud unta silay kahigayonan nga modaog.

“The feeling of course is of elation but there’s also a lot of panghihinayang because we should be going to Madrid now,” matod ni Reyes.

Hinuon gihangop ni Reyes ang 1-4 nga standings sa Gilas diin sukwahi sa iyang pagtou nga dili makadaog ang mga Pinoy batok sa mga higanting kaatbang sa maong torneyo

“Before coming over, we knew that our best chance for a win was against Senegal because they were ranked below us in the rankings. But they came here and started playing a lot better than their ranking, so we thought that if we get a 1-4 (win-loss) record here we’ll be doing very well. Unfortunately, we became the victim of our own early success as everyone in the Philippines got to think, ‘Oh, we could beat these teams.’ Afterall, we lost four games by a total of 20 points.”

Gitug-an ni Reyes nga dili gyud sayon ang pagpakigkombati sa ubang nasod nga gani niabot pa og ingon ani ka dugay sukad niadtong 1974 nga nakasulod og balik sa World Cup.

“It’s been 40 years since we last won in the World Cup, none of my players were in fact born the last time we won here.They are all superstars with their commercial teams in the PBA, but it’s different when you have the Philippines. It’s a lot heavier. It takes a lot of getting used to, really.”

“We showed in the whole tournament that we belong and that we can compete, and tonight we showed that we can win,” ingon ni Reyes. “I’m not making excuses, but we really lack the experience to win at this level. But hopefully, this leads to bigger things for Philippine basketball." (Kathlyn Martinez, MassComm Intern, USJR/spin.ph)
