    With five defeats and no wins, Gilas’s player confidence should start getting affected. Which is not good because they have campaigned since the start of this journey with their hearts and the hearts of a nation looking up to at least a stellar performance. Even coach Chot Reyes admits that it will be very hard for his team but this is what they have worked for in the Asian Conference. The Filipinos should back Andre Blanche in terms of scoring and not depend on their import. Andre too will lose interest in the end. He is working very hard without his team support. That is embarrassing to the lone American import. All eleven Filipinos have to step up and yes there will be injuries and minor fights.
