Hosts Smart Gilas overcame a stiff mid-game resistance to beat Iraq’s Duhok 74-64 in a Group A game on Tuesday.

“Our defense worked alright, but the offense was all over the place,” sighed Smart Gilas coach Rajko Toroman.

Duhok down by as many as 15 points in the second quarter did extremely well to chip on the deficit and cut it to down to 53-55 before letting Smart Gilas off the hook.

“Let’s accept it. They were much faster than us,” said Duhok coach Fikrat Abdalahad.

CJ Giles, who was the first import to play for Smart Gilas when the development team made its debut in the 20th FIBA Asia Champions Cup at Jakarta two years ago, led the game in scoring with 20 points for Duhok.

“They (Smart Gilas) are a much better team now. A lot more systematic,” Giles said comparing his tonight’s opponents to teammates of two years ago.

“We knew he’d play an inspired game. But I am happy the way stopped him to 6/1…

FIBA ASIA - Second half spurts see Smart Gilas, Mahram stay perfect.


MANILA (22nd FIBA Asia Champions Cup) - Chris Lutz and Joseph Evans Casio spearheaded a third quarter run and the rest followed suit as hosts Smart Gilas dispatched KL Dragons 95-64 on the second day of the 2011 FIBA Asia Champions Cup to improve to 2-0 in Group A.

It was only the second time that Smart Gilas faced a SEABA team in the FIBA Asia Champions Cup. They beat then host Satria Muda BriAma of Indonesia in overtime in Jakarta in 2009.

For KL Dragons, this was baptism of fire in FIBA Asia competitions, pitted as they were against the home team.

The Malaysian side did well in the first half, using a 25-19 second quarter to lead 40-39 at the break.

Dance Radio.

Dance radioDance radio is a format that consists of current and recent dance/electronic music.
While the format is popular in Europe and Asia, it has yet to make an impact in North America, although there are several Top 40 and Rhythmic radio stations which include current Dance product in their play lists. As of July 2010, there were 6 stations (4 full-time and 2 part-time) on FM in various US markets. Dance radio is also present on secondary HD radio streams, satellite, cable and internet. In much of Europe there are national and local dance stations and it is a popular pirate radio format.
HistoryMost of Dance radio's origins can be traced to the early days of Disco in the late 1970s, when stations like WKTU and KIIS-FM made the format a staple on the airwaves. But by the end of the decade, the format began to experience a backlash when sentiments over the music began to force several stations to move on to other genres, with most of them moving to what would become Urban Contem…

Japeth Aguilar came through with a superb shooting display as Pilipinas-Smart Gilas trounced Al Ittihad of Saudi Arabia, 101-69, Saturday night in the 2011 FIBA-Asia Champions Cup at the PhilSports Arena in Pasig City.

Aguilar was the reflection of Gilas' proficient shooting, scoring 20 points to lead the Nationals to their first win in the week-long tournament. He never missed in his 10 shots until in the 1:29 mark when the outcome of the game has already decided.

Gilas shot 43-of-70 from the field, including 38-of-58 from the two-point area and five-of-12 from three-point distance.

"It was a good game for us. We played almost the same as in our tune-up game against them prior to the tournament. We knew that we are the better team," said Gilas coach Rajko Toroman.

Division I – Teams According to HSBC A5N 2010 rankingsKorea


After their shock relegation from the top flight in 2010, none of Korea’s Division I competitors should be in any doubt that the new boys are determined to keep their visit to just one year. Hosting the Division I competition in 2011, Korea will be focusing its efforts on a return to winning ways from the team used to being spoken of in the same breath as Japan.

Korea will be relying on a cohort of players who play professionally in Japan, such as second row You Young Nam, named to the Top League first XV in 2010.Singapore


Under new coach Des Thornton, the Rugby Lions of Singapore are gunning to regain the A5N Top 5 place they last held in 2009.

The Olivet Discourse.

What is the Olivet Discourse?

Answer:The Olivet Discourse is the name given to the orderly and extended teaching given by Christ on the Mount of Olives. This discourse is recorded inMatthew 24:1 - 25:46. Parallel passages are found inMark 13:1-37andLuke 21:5-36.

Though the discourse itself begins atMatthew 24:3,Mark 13:3andLuke 21:7, Christ's discourse is in response to questions from the disciples, questions based on what Jesus told them inMatthew 24:1-2,Mark 13:1-2, andLuke 21:5-6. The record in Matthew is most extensive, so reference here will be to Matthew's Gospel.

Before discussing the teaching found in this discourse, it is important to recognize that the interpretation of this discourse must be with reference to Israel and not the Church. Christ was speaking of God's program concerning Israel, and the content of this discourse in large part has direct reference toDaniel 9:24-27, as well asRevelation 6:1 - 19:21, passages that refer to the future 7-year period called t…
