Baldwin balik Gilas head coach

Chris Co (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - June 14, 2021 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Itinalaga ng Sama­hang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) si program director Tab Baldwin bilang head coach ng Gilas Pilipinas sa third window ng FIBA Asia Cup Qualifiers na lalarga sa Hunyo 16 hanggang 20 sa Clark, Pampanga.

Maliban sa FIBA ACQ, ang American-Kiwi mentor din ang hahawak sa Gilas Pilipinas sa FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament na gaganapin sa Hunyo 29 hanggang Hulyo 5 sa Belgrade, Serbia.

“I have accepted the opportunity and the challenge to be Gilas’ Head Coach at this time. I am honored to continue working with this outstanding coaching staff as we strive to take these next steps forward in the direction we envision for 2023,” ani Baldwin.

Malalim ang karanasan si Baldwin na tinulungan ang New Zealand para makasikwat ng tiket sa Olympics at World Championship.

Si Baldwin ang ikatlong Gilas Pilipinas coach sa qualifiers kung saan hi­nawakan ni Mark Dickel ang tropa sa first window noong nakaraang taon habang si veteran coach Jong Uichico naman ang nagmando sa second window.

“I’m hoping that my inter­national coaching ex­perience and familiarity with our playing systems will be an additional asset to the team in the upcoming challenges the team is facing,” dagdag ni Baldwin.

Si Baldwin ang nakatutok sa paghahanda ng Gilas Pilipinas na nasa Inspire Sports Academy sa Calamba, Laguna.

“The players are res­ponding very well to the system and to each other. Bumps along the road are inevitable due to their youth and relative lack of ex­perience, but these could be double-edged swords too,” dagdag ni Baldwin.
