SBP President Al Panlilio’s statement on the Philippines’ performance in the 32nd SEA Games
Published on May 16, 2023

The Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas congratulates our Gilas Pilipinas Men and Women for winning gold and silver in 5-on-5 and two silvers in 3×3 basketball of the 32nd Southeast Asian Games.

Gilas showed that the pride of fighting for our country is stronger than any other motivation.

They played through substandard conditions in the court under the sweltering heat and overcame bumps and bruises to make us all proud. 

This is a reminder to our country and the Southeast Asian region that upholding the values of fair play, sportsmanship, and love for country trumps all.
