Lithuanian player tumutulong sa Gilas

MALAKING  tulong para sa Gilas Pilipinas ang mga payo ni dating Lithuanian player Virginius Sirvydis na tumutulong sa training camp ng tropa sa Kaunas, Lithuania.
Ayon kay Gilas Pilipinas head coach Chot Reyes, malaki ang kontribusyon ni Sirvydis na may mga puntong ibinibigay para mas lalong mapalakas ang Pinoy cagers para sa FIBA World Cup.
Isa na rito ang depensa.
“There’s a lot of room for growth and improvement for the next two months. Defensively, he’s a fundamental coach, teaches good foundation on defense. He can give us other things that can help us moving forward,” ani Reyes.
Malalim ang karanasan ni Sirvydis na siyang ama ni NBA G League player Devidas Sirvydis.
Iginiit ni Sirvydis na kailangang patatagin ng Gilas Pilipinas ang depensa nito upang makipagsabayan sa matitikas na tropa sa World Cup.
“We got to fix up (our transition) and get back on defense to make sure we know exactly what we want to do. He (Sirvydis) coaches in one of the club teams in Lithuania and has coached internationally in Kazakhstan with Astana. More importantly, I like his philosophies defensively,” dagdag ni Reyes.
Nasaksihan ni Sirvydis ang laro ng Gilas Pilipinas kung saan naipanalo ng Pinoy squad ang dalawang laro nito laban sa Ukraine under-20 team.
“The better our defense becomes, the better our offense as well cause if we defend really well in practice, we can be sharp in our offense as well,” wika pa ni Reyes.
Dalawang tuneup ga­mes pa ang pagdaraanan ng Gilas sa Lithuania.
At umaasa si Reyes na mas magiging maganda ang resulta ng laro ng kanyang bataan partikular na sa depensa.
“I like the situation where we don’t know we will be playing so that we can be adjust, which is a test of our adaptability and our flexibility. And helps us in our ability to make game time adjustments and game time decisions,” dagdag ni Reyes.
