Smart Gilas vs Qatar Exhibition Game
Smart Gilas beats Qatar, 69-52
September 8, 2011
Arena, San Juan

This is the first game of Smart Gilas Pilipinas with the lineup that will compete in the 2011 FIBA Asia Championship. This exhibition game was a test on how the new reinforcements fit in Coach Rakjo Toromans system.

Kelly Williams
Hang-time by Kelly Williams. Williams contributed 5 points but he is needed more in the rebounding and defense department specially with the size of our other Asian counterparts.

Jimmy Alapag
Jimmy Alapag led Smart Gilas in scoring with 11 points on 3/5 from three-point range. Alapag had more playing time since JV Casio sat out of this game, he maybe just the 3rd point guard in the rotation but the team badly needs outside shooters since the resignation of Dondon Hontiveros.

Ranidel de Ocampo
Even with a mask, Ranidel de Ocampo scored 9 points on a combination of inside and outside shooting.
