Three years of preparing and hoping for a London Olympics stint ended with a tough-to-accept semifinal defeat from the hands the Jordanian team, Rasheim Wright, and his teammate Sam Daghlas. As all basketball lovers know, the Smart Gilas team spent three years creating a cohesive and competitive squad composed mainly of collegiate players.
If you watched the match, Jordan for sure knew how to enlarge a wounded team's wound. They celebrated, they cheered, they rejoiced. Well, they deserved it.
It was still a gallant effort by the Smart Gilas team. They can still win 3rd place on a battle for 3rd place match possibly against Korea.
