Powerade Team Pilipinas Games: FIBA-Asia

Thursday, 8/06 - 9 am - vs. Sri Lanka
Friday, 8/07 - 9 pm - vs. Japan
Saturday, 8/08 - 9 pm - vs. South Korea

The team left the country for Tianjin a while ago. On the 6th, James Yap won't be there to play yet but I think he'll fly to Tianjin in a few days. According to Ms. Patricia Bermudez-Hizon's twitter, all these will be aired live on both CS9 and BTV. Support our country by watching and praying for them.

Please also continue to pray for the eternal repose of the soul of Former President Corazon Aquino and for each other as she has instructed us. Tomorrow will be her funeral, let's all take a minute to remember and express our gratitude to her for making the move to regain our freedom. Until the end, LABAN!
